I didn't even consider FTP!!
I just setup a little server with Filezilla and was able to access it over the network with ftp.exe on the Windows 95 machine. Thanks for the tips guys.
Try to use something more handy than ftp.exe. There are many options available. For example: Total Commander, Double Commander or Far Manager. All of those double-panel file managers have ftp client built in or available via plugins. Later two are free/open source. Far manager is console based, it looks like Norton Commander, but is full 32 bit windows application. For 1st gen Pentium machine I would use last of 1.x line.
Ah, there is also Necromancer Dos Navigator. Its network support in dos is not very stable (however I was able to run its ftp client on one of my builds - Cyrix 5x86/100 maybe it's speed sensitive), but in Windows 9x Dos shell it works very well.
