Crossover cable pc connection

darryl_co
I connected two pcs using a crossover cable both running xp and mcafee internet security.The ip address assined to gigabyte pc was 192.168.0.2, subnet mask 255.255.255.0,default ip 192.168.0.1. 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

    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
