I've never heard of such a thing, and a quick google didn't return any results on this being possible. But my reccomendation would be to use ethernet.

It's not like direct cable connection on windows though.... I think. ( that's what you are talking about right? )

I suggest that you post this on the programming forum instead. I don't do pascal or kdevelop so i can't help.
