Hey, that's why I think it would be a useful and interesting FAQ.
I thought the other guy's CTRL/Z preservation method was quite
cute, too.  I'm intrigued by solutions that would require a 
minimum of prep or magic tools on the sending PC.

Assuming the server is also running DOS, it seems to me the 
least prep or magic would be to use Interlnk/Intersvr, included 
in MS-DOS since around version 5. It can use serial or
parallel ports, redirect remote drives and printers, and can do a 
remote install if the receiving computer doesn't have a copy of
Interlnk. Needs a null modem serial cable of course, or a 
LapLink type of Parallel cable or adapter. Same as LapLink; 
not as fancy, but free. Check out the help files for Interlnk & Intersvr.

Didn't we just have a lengthy discussion about this a while ago?
