File Transferring between two computers
I have about 15 gigs of files on my desktop that I want to transfer to my laptop through a direct connection. Both computers have windows XP and ethernet cards. I purchased a Belkin Cat 5e Crossover patch cable to perform this task, but I can't figure out how to use the network connection wizard to make it work. It seems the wizard is good for only creating networks where internet connections are involved, but that's not what I'm interested in. I've created network bridge profiles (probably incorrectly) on both computers and set up both C drives for sharing (I think), but I don't know what else to do.
How can I make this work?
