Run to instances of PCem and make a share network

Its possible run two PCem in the same time and make a network to share files or make one machine to server and another one to client?

It's not possible with the released versions (v14 and below) as the MAC address of the emulated NIC is hardcoded. So basically if you ran two instances, you'd have a MAC address conflict which means the two clients wouldn't be able to communicate.

There's a patch for it so you'd have to compile from source, and theoretically it'd be possible. I may try, as I'd like to set up and play with fun things like OS/2, Netware, BOOTP clients, all that good stuff.
