You will need a null modem serial cable also known as a LapLink cable. Then you can setup Direct Cable Connection on the computers. One needs to be the host and the other needs to be the client.

You should be able to find Direct Cable Connection in Windows Help. That is how I set it up the first time many years ago. But there are several websites that will show you how to do it.

Just Google Search for Windows 95 DCC.

I have got the computers networked, but now I am trying to get the guest computer to be able to access the internet through the host computers network connection. I was wondering if there was anyway to do this? Let me know!
