Is there any software that will allow data to come in through the printer port and go out directly through the modem port?

As of now...no. I assume youre trying to hook two computers up through one modem on one computer or something sorta like that. Currently the only way to do that is to use ethernet and an IP gateway. If youre trying to share something like a printer on both comps the best way is to use phonenet with the appletalk printer driver.

I am trying to link a Psion 3c to my Supra 288 Modem. I have a link cable from the Psion to the Mac and an ADB to Parallel from the mac to the modem but I cannot get a gender changer to connect the two ADB plugs together. Is there anywhere in England where I can get this plug from, or is there a peice of software that will take the data from the Psion into the Printer port and out of the modem port thereby making a link between the Psion and the Modem?
