English term or phrase:null modem serial cable
You can connect your old and new computers using a network cable if you are networked. Use the network cable connection on both PCs. If your PC is not on a network, you can use a null modem serial cable, a lead for linking two computers and allowing them to communicate as if they were connected by modem directly, available at electronic or computer stores.
This cable plugs into a serial port (also known as a COM port) on each computer. (Most computers will have nine-pin serial ports.) The wizard uses an auto-detection method to configure ports for the cable. Connect the two computers through a network or by a serial cable, then start the Files and Settings Transfer Wizard.
je cherche le terme le plus simple et le plus répandu (public non spécialiste), merci !
