Well, I’ve learned a few things.
In Windows 98 there is Start → Programs → Accessories → Communications -
Direct Cable Connection. Our MIS guy said this is what I needed.
Your MIS guy confuses you.
What you need it is:
Start → Settings → Control Panel → Modems
[x] Don’t detect my modem, I will select it from list
Press “Next” button.
Standard Modems, Null-modem for serial connection
Install it and configure it.
Start → Settings → Control Panel ->Add/Remove Programs →
“Windows Setup” tab → Communications →
“Details” button → Dial-Up Networking (Actually it’s RAS client IMO)
Install it and configure it to use your null-modem.
After all steps above, when you creat new dial-up connection, it will try to connect to your ISP
(your QNX box) using null-modem and by this talk:
If port setting are good at both sides and talk was completed successfully, windows will try to do
PPP stuff (autentification etc.)
I mix both your post into one, sorry

I found this file and it does appear to have an entry labeled null modem.
But what do I do about it?
You could change that talk to something more adequate, LOL
I tried to add a Hayes modem and look for a line with null modem on it but
there was none.
Take attension I pointed above the “Standard Modems”, not Hayes
Don’t forget you’re in windows
HTH, But I’ve never tried it
ed1k at ukr dot net
It looked like it was on the right track so I tried it. I had pppd running
on my QNX4 host but it didn’t actually work.
So I loaded
hd < /dev/ser1
and I saw a stead stream of bytes that were repeating. Assuming the <Esc
character to be a delimiter this is what I saw:
1c e0 e0 c7
1c 07 e0 38
Of course I’m not certain the order that these messages started with or even
that they should start with the 1c (Esc). Does this look like it is trying
to negotiate PPP? Or is it trying to negotiate some MS protocol?

I want to configure a Window98 laptop to use PPP to communicate to my QNX
host. I know everything that needs to be done on the QNX side. But I
know how to configure PPP for the laptop without it actually trying to
to a modem. I have the two systems talking through a serial connection.
What are the steps, one at a time that I must do on the laptop to
PPP to my QNX host. My intent is to use static IP addresses but if that
isn’t possible let me know what I can do.
