I want to make a raw connection between my 2 pc's through the serial port. I have connected them directly using a serial cable.

I've been looking for tutorials on this subject, but I've only found tut's about setting up a serial modem.

could anyone point me to a tutorial or something about this ?

Hi Student,

It is a long time since I did my Rs232 cable and code.
Cant find the floppy with it on anymore..

Have a look here Do a search for "RS232" and "serial com"

However if you get a little it of code to look at and then brake teh project up into small parts it will come quite quickly.
Start with a simple program to set the RTS signal and another to watch for it. Then make other sets of tools to test the other parts of the project.
Once you have a grasp of each part it wil all fall into place.
I seem to remember that it was important to get things to wait long enough.

Good luch with it.
