set their IP addresses to the same subnet but different IP addresses -

 

XP - 192.168.1.5 subnet mask 255.255.255.0

Win7 - 192.168.1.6 subnet mask 255.255.255.0

 

Share what you want. Get the account info from both machines, open windows explorer, click on Network, find them, and they should ask you for the account info. Easy Peasy.

 

I assume you have no router?

good afternoon to all

 

i thank all of you very much for the replies

 

i will follow you advice

 

yes, i have a router but my network cable is crossover so i assume it is better to connect both the pc's via cable

 

thanks again

it would be easier with the router not sure why you only have a cross over but it'll work just fine.

Besides which any host made in the last 10-15 years, it's network interface should be capable of auto MDIX, which does the crossover for you automatically, no real need for a crossover cable.
