Create a static route or ARP entry?

I would like to know how to add a static pointer from a computer that has an IP address of 172.16.1.3 to a computer that has 192.168.1.7. The two computers are on a switched network. Any help would be appreciated.

There is no router between them. Is it possible to use a subnet to allow them to communicate? and do you know what the magic number is?
mikebernhardt

Do they need internet access? If so, this won't work. If not, give them both a subnet mask of 128.0.0.0.

You could also try givng them both static ARP entries. I don't know if that will work or not though.

I never thought to give BOTH computers a static entry. I will try the above and let you know...

Oh yeah, they each would need to know about the other.

Nope static ARP entries didn't work.
