The ip address assined to intel pc was192.168.0.1 , subnet mask 255.255.255.0,default ip 192.168.0.1. I shared folders on both the pcs and ran xp network setup on both.From gigabyte i could access files on intel but not vice versa,error cannot find the pc or access denied. In view workgroup computers both pcs are seen on both the computers.Please guide!

Change the default gateway of the gigabyte PC to its own IP address.
192.168.0.2

turn off your firewalls and reboot both machine. I believe you do not need a default gateway

You can try other protocols

by nentech In reply to Crossover cable pc connec ...

Using tcp/ip between 2 PCs can be difficult
You need to make 1 a server

To do this share a dialup connection

Or you can install the NetBEUI Protocol

For Windows XP

The instructions are found on the Windows CD
In the folder
Valueadd \ Msft \ Net \ Netbeui

Read the Netbeui.txt file for instructions

You can also try the IPX/SPX/NetBIOS Compatible Transport Protocol
