by null modem serial cable, using Windows XP File Transfer Wizard. I hook up the cable to each serial port, but they never communicate.:confused: I hope it doesn't take longer than about 10 minutes for the ports to communicate, because that's how long I waited before cancelling the process.:mad:

Any help is greatly appreciated.

It has been a long time since I used the Windows file transfer wizard and that was with a parallel port link. Not sure how much I can help other than maybe provide a link or two.

Did you follow all of the steps for a serial connection transfer listed here:

Moving files and settings to a new computer running Windows XP

According to the instructions, some of the steps may take an hour to complete.
