Hi all,
(orig. quest. below)

got the following reference to a null-modem driver for 95:

looks like this is exactly what I need.

A hearty thanks to: Ron Kelly, Mr. Venkat D for their instructions and

archives to find this modem driver.


Hi all,

I would like to establish a PPP connection from a PC to my 4.1.1 box via a
direct serial connection into a port expander box (no modem). I've seen
documentation that says you can do it rather easily from UNIX to UNIX, but
no mention of PC to UNIX. I'm using PPP v.2.1 and planning on applying the
recommended patches to get ppp to work reliably on the Sun.
