I plan to use null modem cable (Cable with full handshaking) to connect two computers.
The purpose of this connection is to transfer files to one another.
One of the computer is ME platform and one is XP platform.(If can, all paltform are encourage)
So , can any experts help to develop a simple program to transfer file between two computers.

Use the "Microsoft Comm Control", it should have everything you need for serial communication in this case.
