Network 2 amigas

What's the easiest way to copy files from one amiga to another? One is an A1200 with 64Mb, the other is an A500+ with 6Mb. Both have a hard disk and there is about 750Mb to copy over.

I'm guessing it's either the serial or parallel port, but I don't know which to use and what software.
Thanks

I used NComm and a null modem cable between the serial connectors. Make sure everything is off (both ends when connecting or disconnecting).

This method also allows you to play some great link-up games like Powermonger, Falcon, Lotus 2, Perfect General etc.
