    How do you acces a com port on a peer LAN? The desktop machine shows
    the share started, but on the Win98SE laptop Network Neighborhood shows
    nothing of it.

  2. Don't have a clue what you're trying to accomplish. Please explain fully
    and with much more detail. COM ports are not a shareable device or
    resource.

    I think you'd have to have specialized terminal server software running
    on the machine with the com port.

    Use the modem on the desktop from the laptop.
    I'll take that as a Win98 limitation. It is also true of XP?
