General Networking/Lan/Wan/Connecting two pcs


Hello , i have to connect my pc and laptop for direct data transfer from each other via cable. How can i do this?
Regards Hasan

You need to look for a cross-cable, Hasan for this kind of data transfer. YOu can use as IP for one PC and for other PC. If you don;t have a cross cable but an android phone which can be used a wi-fi hotspot you can use that too..

In both the cases you can browse other computer and copy/paste files from each other or can also use ftp/tftp for file transfer.

Hope this helps.
Please let me know if you get stuck any where.
