Sure you can.
Here's how you would send the string TXBUFF$

  Form1.MSComm1.CommPort = 1
  Form1.MSComm1.Settings = "1200,N,8,1"
  Form1.MSComm1.PortOpen = True
  Form1.MSComm1.InputLen = 0
  Form1.MSComm1.Output = TXBUFF$

Heres how you could receive
  RXBUFF$ = ""
  Form1.MSComm1.CommPort = 1
  Form1.MSComm1.Settings = "1200,N,8,1"
  Form1.MSComm1.PortOpen = True
  Form1.MSComm1.InputLen =

  ComDelay = 0
  Do
    DoEvents
    RXBUFF$ = RXBUFF$ & Form1.MSComm1.Input
  Loop Until (ComDelay > 2)

Where ComDelay is hooked to a timer so that the program wont get hung up.

Yes, MSCOMM control can be used if you have modem cabel connected to the serial port of the computers. This is exactly what 3rsrichard  is trying to explain. In the above example connect the cable between 2 com1 serial port.

If you use a cable only, then you have to have something to swap the wires on pins 2 and 3.  A "Null Modem" or other device you can get at a parts store.
