If the 2 computers are not in the same network then they will not be able to connect to each other. Try giving them the following ip address and subnet masks: host 1 - 192.168.0.1 255.255.255.0 host 2 - 192.168.0.2 255.255.255.0 Don't set a gateway. Make sure they're in the same workgroup by going to System Properties (or "System", there go to the "Computer Name" tab). Start with both computers turned off, join to the workgroup, set ips, and restart. Then your respective computers should show up under my network places.
