With the recent postings about CTWIN with W2K and XP, I did a little testing.  I have an XP and a W2K machine set up on my network with CTWIN 10.01.01.  I invoked CT with the -enet switch.  I was able to log from one machine to the other and send gab messages.  However, I did notice that if I had the W3K machine set as station 1, that it gave me a message, Fail to open LPT1.  I don't use the LPT port for anything, so it was a mystery.  It then did not bring up the network setup window.  If I set the machine to any other station (that didn't conflict with the other machine), I didn't get that message and the network setup window came up.  So, I would avoid using station 1 until that mystery can be solved.
