This cable is also suitable for use with Microsoft's Interlink. Interlink
(which is included with DOS 6) is a cut down version of Fastlynx.

This is the pin layout for a PARALLEL INTERLINK CABLE For all you people with
two computers & MS.DOS 6. with interlnk & intersvr. Both plugs are standard
25 pin D plug. Hope this is useful.

Laplink3 cabling Specification
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
1)  25 way Parallel port connections
2)  25 way to 25 way serial port connections
3)  9 way to 25 way port connections

The parallel connection is roughly twice as fast as the serial connection.

Look for Interlnk in DOS 6+ for a more complete cable wiring which will
allow faster transfers.

As can be seen, the connections are mirrored. IE, pin 5 at one end goes to pin
10 at the other, pin 10 at one end goes to pin 5 at the other & so on.
