Does anyone know if it is possilbe and/or practical to use TCP/IP over a serial link between 2 computers using an RS-232 null modem cable  and the javax.comm api to transfer files?

If its worth doing (rather than using Zmodem or kermit) any pointers or code would be much appreciated

Since there is no TCP over Serial possible, I would assume, no.
MAybe you find an driver, that shows your serial ports as network adapters, and then you use the tcp facilities of java, but otherwise you have to implement an tcp stack in java itself.
