You can set up a PLIP (Parallel Line Internet Protocol) connection
between the two, connecting the two parallel ports by way of a null
modem cable. This is very easy to do and gives you full connectivity
between the two systems. Once the connection is made you can use any
of the FTP programs out there, or rsync, or ange-ftp from within emacs
.... or you can use NSF to mount one file-system on the other system.

There's a very good Mini-HOWTO maintained by Andrea Controzzi which
you can get on the sunsite archive or at:
