Connecting two computers through RS-232

I would like to be able to transfer information between two computers using a serial connection (RS-232). How could I do that using QBasic?


Thanks

Paulo

  • 1. you need a null modem cable to connect the two computers.

    2. you need to write a program in one to send a file/data and a program to receive a file.

    3. Input from comx where x is whatever com port you have connected the cable to. This is the receive program.

    4. Output to comx where x is whatever com port you have connected the cable to in the other computer.


    This should give you enough info to get started.

  • Another Note,....


    Using a serial cable or null modem,

    are a wee bit different,

    one, speed pick up some good routines for accessing 56k speeds in qb

    2... ive tried it, they lagg out to much because

    they go out of synch easy, MAKE sure they connect

    at the right speed

    other than that it should be ok
