I am trying to send RS232 data from two notebooks that do not have
serial ports. I know there are USB to serial (RS232) adapters
available. These allow communications to occur through a virtual
serial port. Now, what I need is a USB to USB RS232 serial cable, that
allows serial transmissions to occur, but via USB connections.

Can someone please point me in the right direction?

that's either inpossible or trivially easy (try a null modem cable)
