What kind of modems are you talking about here? Dialup modems or highspeed internet modems?

If the latter, you can't do it. If the former, you can't do it unless both are attached to a working phone line. Then you can dial the one from the other. FWIW, transfer raites across dialup modems would be painfully slow.

What you need to do is get yourself a crossover network cable and directly connect the two using it and their network interfaces. Then, give them the following TCP/IP settings:

PC 1:
IP Address: 192.168.0.1
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0

PC 2:
IP: 192.168.0.2
SM: 255.255.255.0

Then, they'll be able to communicate and you'll then be able to share a folder on one PC, connect from the other and transfer files that way.

It matters not how straight the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.

Not a simple as you may think. Assuming you are using 56K dial up modems you need to emulate a telephone network between the two modem as that is what they are designed to be connected to. This can be done whith a few resistors and capacitors but is far too complicated a solution for a simple problem.

If you using broadband modem then no you cant. You need more than a fe capacitors and resistors.

The simplest solution is to connect the two computer directly By Cat5 cable if both computers have a network adaptors or via a Null Modem if both computers have an RS232 serial Interface. You could do it via USB but that tends to be expensive for something that you may only be going to be used once.

Why don't you just go purchase a flash drive and transfer them that way.
