Direct cable connection 95-98
Posted on 1998-09-13
I have one PC with Win98 (4.10.1998.6) and another with Win95 (4.00.1111). I have installed a "Host Direct cable connection between 2 PCs on COM2" on the '98 PC and the same , but "Guest ..." on the '95 PC. When I click 'listen' button on host, 'connect' button on guest, correctly connected the cable (run fine under DOS - with FX Link program) - after a while "trying/finding/waiting for guest/host"-message on the guest(95) I receive: "Host not found, are the cables properly connected?" or something like that. After another seconds on the Host(98) I receive a speaker beep(the guest has no speaker - XT case) and some part of message under the "Connecting ..." text, but the dialog box don't expand and I can't read it (it is sure null-info). Can help installing 98 on the 95 PC?
There are no conflicts/! in the device managers of two PCs, on the host(98) the CD-ROM is shared.
PS/BTW - in near future I will re-build one XT/CGA (without case :) and I want to run Windows 3.00a on it (3.0 will run 100%)Is it possible to connect the Internet to 98 with modem, the 98 to the 95 with NICs, the 95 to the 3.0 with serial cable?
