I am unable to get my Windows XP machine to communicate with my Windows 10 machine.
Machine A: MacBook running Windows XP using Parallels Desktop for Mac.
Machine B: HP laptop computer running Windows 10.
I have set up both machines to belong to the same group "HOME" (without quotes).
An Ethernet crossover cable is plugged into each machine.
I use machine A to initiate connection to machine B.
I watch machine B's network and see that (after a 10 second delay) bytes are indeed being
received and that a few bytes are being sent.
But machine A then says it can not connect.
I don't know what each machine expects in the way of handshake.
What should that be?
