Retro day

setup a serial connection between a lubuntu netbook w/USB serial port running dosbox and an old gateway 2000 laptop running win 3.1 so hopefully I could transfer a bunch of retro software onto it and run it on native hardware but it appears I need a better null modem cable because I’m getting transfer errors like mad even though stuff is getting through. laplink 5 found it too unreliable and using telix with zmodem seems to be the only thing that can deal with that many data errors.
