    This is a great program!  I am so glad to be able to run all my old games on my new computer.

    Anyway, many of these old programs had support for multiplayer games over a modem or serial cable.  I thought a great idea for a new feature would be to emulate a serial port over TCP/IP.  i.e. "Dial" an ip address.  "ATDT 192.168.25.4".

    Thanks again for this great program!

      Hmm that's a great idea actually, shouldn't even be that hard to get working. You could somehow integrate it with kaillera too i think. Some ipx/spx over kaillera stuff would be nice :)

      This is something I've been asking for for some time.  I've always thought it should be simple enough to do, and was surprised no one had done it already.
