Connecting two PCs through LAN ports?

Discussion in 'Computer Information' started by Brian Wescombe, Mar 8, 2005.

  1. How easy is it to directly connect two PCs together via their LAN ports?
    Some simple instructions needed please!

    One using XP Pro, the other using XP Home

    Thanks in advance

    Trivially easy. Use a cross over cable, and run the Network Connection
    Wizard on both machines.
