Ok,  I need to transfer some files, and we don't have a network cable to hand.

I've connected both computers to extensions in our office.  (203 and 204 to be precise) and I dial 203 from 204 or vice versa, and although the lights on the switchboard suggest a call, they don't connect.

I don't know what could be going wrong or if I should use something else.

Please help me.

Cheers

Austin

Many PBX systems don't work with modems unless the line is specifically configured for it.   A serial null-modem cable directly between the PCs should work.

If it is just a few files and you can access the Internet, email them.
If it is a one time thing, use floppys.  winzip's "spanning" feature will allow you to transfer a file of any size easily.
Otherwise, your best solution is to find a network cable.

I remembered that when I got broadband at home with NTL, I had the opportunity to use ethernet or usb.  I used usb, so the cable was lying around spare.

I haven't transferred the files yet, but I know how to network as I do it at home.
