Mike - I just networked CT using 2 Ethernet cards and K1TTT's 
NETTSR program in 2 computers.
Advantages - Ethernet is fast, reliable, and can be used with ANY 
network (WIndows, Novell, etc.) Configuration doesn't require a 
serial port (only a base address and IRQ). 
Disadvantages-You need an Ethernet card for each computer. I've 
seen them advertised for as little as $10 here in USA.
