Can I use a serial-to-USB adapter, or other gender-changing adapter for FileMover connections?


No, it is not recommended to use an adapter of any type. Such a connection will not be supported by Laplink technicians and may not work since the port communication method is different between serial, parallel and USB ports. If both of your PC's do not have compatible, functional ports, you must switch to a different cable type or connection method.
