Remote access software enable

I have two laptops. I want to connect both of them just using one cat 5 cable without any router or hub. My question is there any way i can see real live activities on each computer without using programs like netbeui (Sharing dashboard). I have other programs which dont run when i use the netbuei and they gives error

remote access software enable

Thanks.

I have windows XP on one machine
and windows vista on the other

To connect the two systems without a router or switch you need to purchase a cross-over Cat5 cable. It is the same as a normal Cat5 cable with a different pin out.

Are they connected to the internet using wireless?

Fill in the form and get your FREE NFR key NOW!

Veeam is happy to provide a FREE NFR server license to certified engineers, trainers, and bloggers.  It allows for the non‑production use of Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows. This license is valid for five workstations and two servers.

If both are connected by one cable then they will behave as though on a network IF you change the TCP/IP stack to static IP numbers, i.e. PC-A is 192.168.1.2 and PC-B is 192.168.1.3 (both with a subnet of 255.255.255.0).  Once you've done that you do not need netbeui.

You will not be able to printscreen on 1 pc and then recall it on the other.  When you invoke printscreen the image is copied into the clipboard of the local pc.  To send it to the other pc you'd have to open a graphics program, i.e. MS Paint, paste it, save it and send it through file sharing.

As stated previously, you'll probably need a crossover cable unless one of the NIC's can convert the bits themselves.  I know some Mac's can do that, you might have to look at their settings.  But if you don't want to use netbeui you're going to have have to put in some static IP's into them as well as the previous poster said.

For desktop sharing you could look at something like Synergy.: http://synergy-foss.org/
