Sorry for the dumb question, but what you're doing interest me a lot, although I
have really little knowledge. So, first, are you saying that you connect directly
the cable of your modem from one computer to the other ? Is it possible with any
kind of cable ?

I have got the same problem.

Maybe it isn't the kind of my question you would like to answer ;-) (if someone
knows a source of information, online, I won't bother you).
What I understand is that you send commands to your modem (ATZ...) and it uses that
to connect to the other modem. I think you use miterm to do it ? But then, how do
you send files ?
And also, how do you make an "Hardware handshake 2400 bps 8N1 local echo ON" ? Is
it a command ?
