I have Win 2000 Advanced Server on #1 and Win 95 on #2. I'd like to set up a network whereby I can run my ASP scripts from #2. I have IIS 5.0 on #1 and am using a cross-over cable. I am completely blank where networking is concerned. Please hold my hand on this.

Thanks

I hope this helps !
First, try a hub or if you have a DSL line try a inexpensive linksys DSL router. You can buy a cheap hub for as low as $20 a Linksys DSL router is about $80.

Add TCP/IP to each network card configuration. If you need more info on where to find this let me know.

On one machine (#1) make the ip address 192.168.0.1 subnet mask 255.255.255.0

on the other make the ip address 192.168.0.2 subnet mask 255.255.255.0

reboot both machines and you should be ready to go.

To run tests goto machine #1 open a dos prompt then type >ping 192.168.0.2

if it fills up with numbers your ok. if it doesnt get back with the info you see.
