How to connect two pc's via modem? (server = linux, client = windows)
 
Hi there

Does anybody knows how to connect two pc's using their modems with linux?, acctually the options are:

1. Connecting two pc's, linux as server and windows Xp as client .
2. Connecting two pc's, both machines using linux.

Hope anybody can give me a light.

BTW i'm using slackware 10.2 and the client for sure is using windows xp.

You should be able to connect them using a crossover cable if they both have ethernet cards. Here's how I did exactly that:

Hi.

No, I'm trying to connect two pc's using modem .. I mean through dial up connections.
