win 3.1 to win 95 serial or parallel file sharing

win 3.1 to win 95 serial or parallel file sharing

win 3.1 to win 95 serial or parallel file sharing

     Can someone give me some guidance.  I want to transfer
some files between a laptop running windows 3.1 and a laptop
running win 95.  Neither pc has a nic card.  I was hoping
to construct a serial or parallel cable between them and
setup like ras or something.
      I have found a site with information regarding transferring between win 3.11 and nt 4.0.  It says I
need a win 3.11 disk 7 which I dont have.  Thanks for
your help.

RE: win 3.1 to win 95 serial or parallel file sharing

Try using DOS file sharing command, don't remember what its call, you'll have to look up all the DOS command.  This would allow you to share file between PC using serial or parallel cable
