If you want a better modem Bob, I've got a 26k US Robotics modem
floating around here somewhere if you want it. I don't have a coco
serial cable for it, but you're welcome to it. Just send me a private
note with a mailing address and it's yours.

Subject: [Coco] CoCo to CoCo file transfers

Okay, I'm looking to help people having difficulty transferring files
from PC
to CoCo. Besides that, it's a really retro thing to do and therefore
cool by
today's standards.

I want to set up my CoCo to allow someone to dial it up and download
directly to their CoCo. Do I need to use BBS software or can we both
just use
terminal software? I have Ultimaterm 4.0, two DS drives and ModemPak,
but I've
never done this with my CoCo. (I dialed up Compuserve a few times back
in the
day, but at $6 an hour...)

Will this be sufficient for my end, or do I need different software to
this type of file-sharing? I know a better modem would be good, but
that's not
an option at this point. Has anyone ever tried CSAVE/CLOAD over phone
1500 baud is a lot better than 300.
