FastLynx is an older file transfer program that has been tested on Windows up through version 7. It may not work on Windows 10 and later.
FastLynx can also be used to transfer between different directories on the same computer. It is also used to update or synchronize a set of files or directories that exist in more than one place. In addition to these file transfer capabilities, FastLynx also provides valuable file management functions such as the ability to rename or delete files.
I have always problems using named pipe. The handbook does not shed much light on this facility. I find it difficult to synchronize more than 2 PCs.
Windows sometime gets updated and then sometimes fastlink does not work anymore. We are mainly using W10 abd 11 Home editions.
Unfortunately, we have recently learned that FastLynx is not compatible with Windows 11. That's likely causing some problems for you. More testing is happening to confirm the compatibility with other update versions.
I used Fastlynx 3.3 in June 2021 to transfere files between a Windows 10 PC and an old DOS 3.2 PC through COM ports. It works perfect.
I'm happy to have now different version that can be either installed on Windows 10 or run under old DOS versions. Thank you for still selling this product.
I hate Win 10 - I had to - thankfully Fastlynx 3.3 worked with it.
