Question by Craig B: How to connect 2 laptops with crossover cable for transferring files? Hi, I have 2 laptops and I'm looking to transfer files between the two. I bought a crossover cable. I just need to know the procedure to allow me to hook the two up and how to transfer files. If anyone has a procedure or a link to a good description on how to do this it would be much appreciated. Thanks Best answer:

A two-computer network, sometimes called a peer-to-peer network, can be created using a crossover Ethernet cable. As in any other TCP/IP network, each computer needs to be assigned a unique IP address. In this network configuration, a default gateway is not used and can be unspecified. Example Machine 1 IP 192.168.0.1 Example Machine 2 IP 192.168.0.2 Subnet Mask 255.255.255.0 http://www.atpm.com/network/setup/ethernet_crossover.html wdw
