Those who remember the early days of DOS remember how impressive it was that LapLink on a portable could install itself onto another machine over the link cable and then be able to transfer files.

Sure could use something like that built into the PPC - I could connect to a friend's computer through the USB or serial port (although, now that I think of it, my HP 568 didn't include the serial cable the 548 had in the box) and have ActiveSync install itself onto the host computer in guest mode, so I could copy files back and forth.

Any ideas, other than e-mailing files, hoping for an infrared port (I've never seen one on a desktop) or carrying around a CF ethernet card and hoping to find a free LAN jack?

Hi,
Right now there's no support to use Activesync that way.

BTW, with Pocket PC 2002 they support the file transfer function in XP. So in that case all you need is IR.
