Dear experts

I'd like to do file transfering between two Window98 PC.
For this, I connected each PC's COM port with NULL MODEM cable(cross cable).
Then executed Hyper Terminal as COM1 direct connection mode.
And tried to establish connection between each PC with same option(baud rate, flow control, Parity, stop bit, etc).
Then on one PC, I executed file receiving, while executed file transfering on the other PC, .
But both PC show error status message " connection time out".

Please give me a comment.
Thanks in advance.

why not user direct cable connection and see how you get on with that?

its basically what your doing with a easier GUI..
c:\windows\directcc.exe
the program is called , you may have to install it on control panel> add remove prgs> windows setup > communication.


Make sure you have tcp/ip installed in windows networking properties?

hmm same idea you could use a serial cable for a program called LapLink. But then again you could always connect your two computers as a network like and internal network. you would need a network card for both computers though.... correct me if I am wrong.

Yes, I tried as you  recommend.
And I set one PC as host, and another as guest.
Then host PC showed a message "waiting guest....".
Now where is the user interface for operation such as file transfer or receive, etc ?
Should it come out at that moment if correctly connected ?

▀It uses microsoft file and print sharing
< you will have to install it in network properties>

&#9600;if you think it has connected right.... try finding the other the computer by clikcing , start find computer then for the name just put in a *,,
or just double click netowrk neighbourhood.

&#9600;Make sure they are both in the workgroup in the "identifaction tab" in netwroking properties

&#9600;However i would try another cable or port, sound to me something is wrong.... have you checked in the BIOS to see if they are running at bidirectional mode?
