Use DCC to connect to a Network



If you are having problems to establish a Direct-Cable Connection :
let me tell you already now that there is a
DCC Trouble-Shooting page and
that you can test / troubleshoot your Parallel DCC connection using a great
utility from Parallel Technologies called
DirectParallel Connection Monitor
Note: there is a special setup for using a Direct-Cable Connection to share
an Internet Connection.


Now, we use a networked
system (with a network card
installed and configured)

as a DCC host.
On startup of Windows,
we should see now the
"Network Logon Screen"
(and not just the simple
Windows Logon screen)
On connecting now the DCC
Client to the DCC host,
the Network Neighborhood
is now operational, showing
ALL systems on the network,
not just the DCC-host).

If you ask for the Network
Neighborhood
a few seconds
after connecting, it will NOT
yet show the DCC client,
but that will show up within
a few seconds also.
On the DCC host, you can now
via browsing the Network
Neighborhood
access the
data shared on the DCC client.
