I have a laptop with an ethernet port. I have a Western Digital MyBook with an ethernet port (it contains its own little internal computer).
I need to hook up my laptop directly to the MyBook and be able to access it via windows networking. How can I tell my laptop to connect to the MyBook? I'm not sure if it has a static IP or if I need to run some sort of a DHCP server to assign it one.
This would be a lot easier if the MyBook had a monitor and keyboard and I could just assign the IP address manually!
