Thread: IDE hard drive in XT computer

    I use INTERLNK/SVR and LapLink parallel or serial to connect PCs without HDD to a 486 with a 2GB HDD. This way I have all files centrally. Some software does not work with that solution unfortunately however.

    Peter, there's software that utilizes that same parallel cable setup to run a full client/server network and that aforementioned software will most likely work via that network, enabling the PCs without HDDs to fully utilize the 486's 2GB drive.

    Cool. What software would that be?

    There's Lantastic Z which can use either a serial or a parallel cable and there's U-NET II which is a complete Server/Workstation network via parallel cable.

    Have a look at the manual:

    Interesting. Will have to try those out at some point in the future. Thank you.
