How to I transfer with just one internet connection?

Here is how to transfer between two computers, when you only have one internet connection available:

[Before you start - make sure to remove any 3rd party antiviruses / firewalls on the old computer]

  1. Run Zinstall on the old computer, until it asks you “Which computer is this”. DO NOT answer that question – leave it unanswered on the screen.
  2. Switch internet connection to new computer.
  3. Run Zinstall on the new computer, until it asks you “Which computer is this”. DO NOT answer that question – leave it unanswered on the screen.
  4. Now, take the internet cable and plug it DIRECTLY between the computers – one to another.
  5. Wait 5 minutes.
  6. On the old computer, answer the “Which computer is this” question, (this is my old computer), so that you see a screen with spinning green dots
  7. On the new computer, answer the “Which computer is this” question, (this is my new computer), and press the Go button to start the transfer.
