I have little experience connecting two computers via serial port but
much experience connecting computer serial ports to other devices. If
your two machines are next to one another, you can connect them

There is a great section in The Art of Electronics (Horowits and Hill)
entitled "How to become an RS-232 genius," (or at least how to convince
your friends you are one."
