Sound Card Data transfer
 
Hello
How can transfer data over sound card between two computer ?

I believe that comes under 'pointless hacks'. Possible, but why bother?

If you want to transfer data, use a network card, not a sound card.

I used to do this when I was playing around with creating a voip system.

I think the file /dev/dsp is reliant on oss:

I think you can mknod /dev/DSP while running alsa.

I agree it's "pointless" but in retrospection I've done a lot of pointless things with computers. This sounds like fun.

Clever... but were you aware that someone already did it and you might already have the drivers on the machines? Linux's AX.25 drivers include a soundblaster interface. AX.25 uses frequency-shift keying (two different tones for 1 and 0), and transmits around 1200bps.

It is intended to be connected to an amateur radio, but can be hooked up from line-in to line-out if you want."

It is possible. Transfer speeds will be on the order of 1200BPS.
