Product: Hardwire data transfer, remote computer control and telecommunications (modem) software
Many expensive methods are available to transfer data (mostly files) from one personal computer to
another. Networks are the most popular way at the moment, and they do offer the most flexibility.

machines by foot rather than sending the data electronically—is a direct cable hookup between the two

network that must overlay the transferred data with the network's packet information and involves lots of
give-and-take between client and server.
