Thread Starter

I want connect two Siemens programing devices: PG720 and PG685, and exchange files between them using program PG-LINK.
And I have two questions about it:

1. Is this exchange possible? (programming devices have different operating systems:
- PG685 have CP/M
- PG720 have Windows 95 )

2. What is electic schematic of cable for connecting these programing devices?

I dont think it is possible, but you may think to use the PCOPY file, by which you can copy programs (via a diskette of course) between
P/CPM-86 and MS-DOS. You can download the PCOPY program from Siemens product support website.

I hope this helps.
