PC to Amiga Connection

I used to parallel connect my PC with windows XP to my A1200 WB3.1 using a program called PC2Amiga but I now installed Windows 7 in my PC and PC2Amiga seems not working with Win7.
Someone knows any program that works with Win7 / Vista to parallel connect Amiga to PC?

Have you tried Cloanto's Amiga Explorer?

That will let you connect PC to Amiga via either a null modem cable or TCP/IP.

Check the parallel port service is running?

With an A1200 why not get a PCMCIA->CF adapter & CF card? Much, much easier than messing about with cables. Transfer 100's of MB's of data in minutes rather than hours.

You could try a PCMCIA Ethernet or Wireless card to network with the PC via TCP/IP and Samba, FTP the files across or mount the PC drive on Workbench and copy the files over.

Thanks guys,
All of your ideas are valid, maybe the faster "connection" Amiga/PC is get the CF card from A1200 and put it on PC to write the files I want in it then put it again on the A1200, after all it is already prepared for that service
