Default So I hoook two computers to one switch...

And then what happens? Can I access one computer from the other? Can I send files across? Is this a good way to make a direct connection between computers? I only have access to one ethernet jack in my dorm room, so hooking both directly to the network isn't an option. Does this sound like a good solution?
