I have a desktop (XP) and a laptop (Windows 7) and I'm looking to transfer files directly from the desktop to the laptop. Yes, I know I can copy media and do it that way, but I want to do this directly.
I just bought a network cable for the laptop to make switching between computers online (not wireless) easier and wonder if this network cable can be used to transfer files? I bought it at Best Buy and it has two numbers on it, Cat-6 and RJ-45. I'm sure one is a part number and hopefully the other will identify exactly what I have.
Can this be done? If so, do I need special software? What's the procedure?
