I have one computer running on Windows 7 and I want to connect this to another comp running on Windows xp. Both computers have ethernet cards from different manufacturers and they have been connected using a cross over RJ45 cable.
I have tried to ping the two computers but I am receiving two kinds of error messages
- Request timed out (error on the xp comp)
- Destination host unreachable (on the Windows 7 comp).
Can someone tell me what network setting I should perform from the beginning to establish a connection between the two comp.
