Windows supports a wireless PC to PC file transfer process known as an Ad Hoc Network. This is an ideal method for transferring files wirelessly when no wireless internet is available.

2. SELECT Set UP a New Connection or Network.

4. CHOOSE Next again.

5. ENTER a name for this Network and a password to give to those you want to connect. Be sure to write the password down. SELECT Next again.

6. SELECT the Network and Sharing Center.
7. CONFIRM that 1) Turn on Network Discovery, 2) Turn on File and Printing and Turn on Sharing so Anyone with a Network Access can Read and 3) Write files in the Public Folders are selected.

On Computer 2

1. SELECT the Internet Access icon in your system tray (bottom right) and SELECT the Network

3. SELECT Open Network and Sharing Center.
4. While the computers are negotiating with each other, you will see Identifying under View Your Active Networks. Once connected you will see Public Network.

Once you have created the network connection as described above, the results file (created by the Eagle Eye timing computer) can be saved by selecting Save Times within the Race Results tab. The meet management computer will then retrieve the results file from this same location (for example, when using the GET TIMES button within Hy-Tek’s Meet Manager Run mode).
