Dear all,
First of all happy 2005 :-)
I am trying to share some files between my home computer (running Win XP) and laptop (running Win 95) via a null modem connected to my COM port (9pins).
I have tried some things found on the web but it just doesn't seem to work.

I've done all the steps at:

I need to acces my home computer files (HOST) via the laptop (Guest).

Can anyone help....


Kind regards,

Most common mistakes are not specifying the correct com port numer and the cable is not right. If you think those are all correct, are you getting any errors whenyou try to access the computers. Can you ping one computer from the other?

For an extra 20 dollars you could probably have picked up a cheap hub and two ethernet cables and done this much easier and faster
