    You can use either a three-wire serial link or 25-wire parallel link using INTERLNK and INTERSVR. I use the serial link, but I wish I had a parallel one as it'd be faster.

    :
    THX a lot for your reply.
    But would you say what is INTERLINK and INTERSVR?
    and another thing is that i have different DOS versions on them(6.22 and 4.01) is it any problem or not?
    THX AGAIN.

    : But would you say what is INTERLINK and INTERSVR?
    Standard communication programs, DOS accesories. Were bound with DOS up to version 6.22 included, M$ abandoned them with 7.0 (and Win95).

    : and another thing is that i have different DOS versions on them(6.22 and 4.01) is it any problem or not?
    Of course there may be lotsa problems. Make sure they have at least the same version. When you're done, try using the INTERLNK command on one computer, and the INTERSVR on the other one.

    INTERLNK and INTERSVR are in the DOS directory. One of them can be run in DOS 3, so don't worry. They can only use FAT12 and FAT16 partitions.

    You sure can.

    Using Interlnk and Intersvr.

    Interlnk is the 'client' component.
    Intersvr is the 'server' component.

    Procedure:
    1. Connect your cables.
    2. Start INTERSVR on the server computer.
    3. Edit CONFIG.SYS on client computer
    4. Insert DEVICE=C:DOSINTERLNK.EXE into CONFIG.SYS and reboot

    Interlnk will pick up on the server running, and complete the connection, mapping server drives to local drive letters. You can't share CDROM drives, they are considered network devices. Sorry. You can copy the contents of cdrom to hard drive and do it like that, though.

    Intersvr has parameters. To get them, intersvr /?

    Good luck.

    If that fails, my next suggestion would be 3 1/2" floppies and PKZIP 2.04g. :)
