2 xphome computer network with crossover
Posted on 2004-03-23
hi again after a long time (well study & exams took such a long time)
i have a couple of questions but first is first.i tried to connect 2 xphome computers with crossover cable for simply file and cd-w sharing.both comp. have own internet acces ( i don't need ics ) and norton AV.when i tried network applet from control panel it gives me ics first but i really don't need it. also despite network icon shows connection in task bar i can't see each other in network places /entire network ( and of course can't ping)both have same "workgroup"
now, bit silly question but how can i make a small network without ics those comps and configure norton(2003)??
(when i tried to find/see other box from network places warning applet comes which says contact admin etc.- there is only 1 user in each) could it be because stopped/manuel services?? if it is which services must be run??
thanks for any help and best regards.
