I tried out your ntool. It works perfectly over a crossover cable. 
Mike Brutmans nc program also transfered a testfile without problem. 
The documentations of both programs come with easy examples how to 
transfer files.

Until now I accomplished file transfers between freedos boxes over 
crossover cable by
- FTP (server: EZNOS2, Datalight sockets, ftpsrv32 from the WATT32 
- Netcat (ntool, nc)
- IPXCOPY (which I found interesting to discover...)
- MS Client (with netbeui protocol)

I also experimented with Kermit but didn't get it to work so far...
