    First off, this should probably be in the Computer Science or Technology forum, not homework (unless this is a homework problem, in which case you should show your attempt at a solution). A mod will probably be by to move this to one of those forums.

    Next off, do you have a modem? Are you actually dialing out? More importantly, which operating system are you actually using? Are you attempting to do windows file sharing? Set up TCP/IP?

    If the two computers are already networked, either through the internet, or through a local network, and they have IP addresses, it might be a whole lot easier to connect through this medium instead.

    Would these two computers use different phone lines to the Internet or do you mean that the two computers are connected to each other’s modem by a phone line?
