activate the remote access facility of both PC's one acting as a host one will act as a client. then you can file share or better yet ftp the files you want to transfer...

Still need to go through phone system

by gralfus In reply to Connecting modem to modem

You will still need to have two phone numbers so you can dial between the modems. There is no way to make the modems talk outside of a phone connection, because they will detect no dialtone.

If you can install a NIC in each PC, you can hook up the two PCs with a crossover cable.

Not strictly true...

It will work between two extensions on a PABX. It is also perfectly possible to set Dial Up Networking to not wait for a dial tone. Any single digit can then be used to 'dial out', but linking the two modems together RJ11 to RJ11 will only work with certain types of modem (Conexant HSP's work ok in this instance!) as the modems usually need an AC voltage on the line to drive the line interface components.

The easiest way to link the two PCs is with a 3 wire serial null modem cable and then use Direct Cable Connection to network them. Slow, painfully slow, but cheap and simple!
