When using EaseUS Todo PCTrans, PC to PC is an effective method to transfer between 2 machines if they are in the same LAN. Here are the steps for connecting source and target PC by Network.
 
1. Launch Todo PCTrans and select PC to PC.


 
2. Click PC to PC button. The software will scan and list all the recognized PCs in the same LAN. Please ensure the source and target PCs are in the same LAN and have the same version of Todo PCTrans installed.
 
Select the PC you want to connect in the left side, and input the Windows account's password of this "Remote PC". If the PC you want to connect doesn't have a password, just click Connect directly.
 
Select the transfer direction. Transferring from this PC, or vise versa. Please note the term "Local PC" refers to the currently selected PC in EaseUS Todo PCTrans.



3. Our product also provides you the option to use Verification Code to connect to the Remote PC.



4. Click Verification Code at the top-right corner on the remote PC. Screenshot as below. A correct Verification Code should be 4 Arabic numerals. Please type in the displayed number to connect.



5. If the PC you want connect to is not listed on the left side, you can also click Add a PC to add it via IP or computer name manually. The IP address or computer name are also viewable on this page. If you do not know these information for the remote PC, you can navigate to this same page on that computer to check. 
After clicking Connect, you are asked to input Windows account's password or verification code.

Troubleshoot the Connection Issue

1. Wrong Password error.
1) Please check whether the password is input correctly, especially the case difference.
2) If there is no password for this account, you can just leave it blank and click continue.
3) If the product still cannot verify the password you fill in, or your computer uses face recognition technology or pin code, please try verification code instead.
 
2. Automatic scanning can not list the computer you want to connect.
1) Make sure that the computer is power on, and in the same LAN with the source computer. It also requires that both computers have the same version of Todo PCTrans installed.
2) Close the anti-virus software and disable firewall on both computers. Then try again.
3) If you still can not see it in the computer list, please manually add the PC by IP address or computer name. You will find the information of the other computer in Todo PCTrans.

 

4) If adding the PC by IP address or computer name still fails, please provide the following information to
techsupport@easeus.com so that we can further analyze the issue.
   A. Screenshots showing the IP address for each computer.
   B. Screenshots showing the connection error message.
   C. The logs files on both PCs (please run "%temp%" and file the file "todoPCTrans.log").

USEFUL TIPS: If you want to use Ethernet cable to connect both PCs, please use a Crossover Cable instead of Straight Cable. An Ethernet crossover cable connects two computers directly through the Ethernet ports, allowing the computers to pass or share data without having to build a network.
 
Crossover Cable is mainly used to connect the same device, like 2 computers, while the Straight Cable is used to connect different types of devices, like a computer and a modem, router, or switch.
