    DCC only at 4.0 Mbps

    Hi,

    I recently made an Direct Cable Connection with two xp computers. I did that with an parallel cable. The speed is only 4 Mbps. Can this be changed in a much faster speed or isn't this possible with an parallel cable? thanks

    From what I've read your speed should be maxed at 1.1MB/s. If you're getting 4 from a parallel dcc then I wouldn't complain.

    I think Mbps stands for Megabit

    yep yep....
    8 bits in a byte...


    so 4Mbps = 0.5 MB
    (4 mega bites = 0.5 mega bytes)
