Can't connect XP-to-Linux server via ethernet cable

I am trying to connect directly to my Linux server (used to be on the net) using an ethernet cable between the two computers without a router. The win XP box cannot see the Linux box to log in to the application - running on apache. Redhat 8 is the OS

Seems it should be simple ....

Not sure ... it is a cable I use to connect my laptop to my office network .... Do I need to buy a special cable for this?

"connect to a router it is engineered" should read "connect to a switch or router it is engineered"
Thanks. Once I do this, what settings do I need to make in Win XP and Redhat settings for the network connection to work?
will need more help with configuration isses - didn't get this from expert
What do you need help configuring? You will just have to make sure that the computers are on the same subnet.
