I’ve been looking for days (over a week now) for a solution to my problem. What I want to do is this:
Share internet from Computer A to Computer B with only a crossover Ethernet cable. No router, no wired hub, just the cable. Both are Windows 7 computers.
I’ve had it set up this way for almost a year, but Computer A’s hard drive recently crashed and I’ve had to replace it with another computer and I lost the instructions that I used before to set it up like this. Here’s what I remember from those instructions, if this will help:
Computer A: (Internet connected PC): One of the ipv’s was set to an IP Address of 192.168.137.1
Computer B: One of the ipv’s was set to 1:2:3:4:5:6:7:8
And I remember having to go into Windows firewall and allow some connection. I think there was an issue with this as well where I had to go in to some settings to even make it show the option to allow the connection?
I think I may also have had to go into my broadband modem and make adjustments as well, cannot remember what I did there.
Someone might ask why I want this sort of setup. The reason is this: I cannot use my router because I connect to a VPN for work over Computer B, and the VPN will not allow me to connect with the model of router I have. Also, I don’t have time to go buy a wired hub even if that would work.
This seems like it would be easy for some of you gurus, so please can someone help me?
Thanks in advance.
