Ok, I don't know if this is where I am supposed to put this thread, but this was the onlt likely place. At any rate, I have a bunch of Vintage 8088's with the same basic stuff(Modems, hard drives...) and I read an article in a book about vintage servers. Any way, It said before the internet was available to us civilains, what businesses did was set up a server. There was a computer with alot of hard drives and memory. And all the computers in the workplace where networked into that computer, so for instance, there was the server, computer SE. Then there was two computers hooked to it, computer A and B. Computer A sent a file through a wire(did this use modem, or ethernet?) to computer SE, which stored it on it's hard drive. Then computer B hooked into computer SE and grabbed that file. My question is, how would I go about setting up this type of server on vintage computers? would I use ethernet, or a modem? thanks for any help!
