<P>I have two laptop computers, each with one serial port, each running
<P>I want to simultaneously
<BR>1. have each laptop controlling a rig, and
<BR>2. have the two laptops networked
<P>This usually requires two serial ports per computer.
<P>My questions are:
<BR>1. Has anyone done this already? How?
<P>2. is it possible (in actual practice) to network the laptops using
the bidrectional parallel ports?
<P>3. Can PCMCIA USB ports be used in the DOS environment to network
the two laptops
<BR> without the use of ethernet adaptors? Where would
I get driver software for that?
<P>I would greatly appreciate any help I can get on this subject.
