Networking two computer directly
Me and my brother want to be able to share files, but we does not have a router...so we are going to have to connect our computer together with a LAN cable. We both have 2 network cards...and we just got a crossover cable(wasn't sure if you needed straight or crossover).And well i have connected them, then ran the windows utility to network two compuer(just like i would if i networked a computer through a router)...and i was curious what settings do you need to set, because i tried the second setting(default)...and it doesn't work...The Server name is the same (MSHOME)..and our computer naems are different..but i have no clue how to be able to do that...any ideas would be great...thanks
