Can I connect Windows 3.1 (or
Posted on 2001-08-25
I own a old 486 (66 MHz) Desktop PC DAW (Digital Audio Worksation) from "Spectral Synthesis". It is currently running under DOS 6.1/Windows 3.1 Operating System. I would like to controle it and share files using my new PC: Sony VAIO 800 MHz PIII Desktop, running under Windows Me.
Can I connect the two computers using Direct Cable Connection, or even a LAN Network? The Sony included a "10Base-T/100Base-TX Fast Ethernet interface" for LAN connection only, can I purchase a LAN card for an ISA configured motherboard? I'd prefer using Direct Cable Connection, but don't know if Interlink.exe (a DOS program) works with Windows Me's Direct Cable Connection.
Can anyone help in solving my dilemma?
Thank you for taking the time.
