Sharing Files Between Two PCs

I don’t know about you but I always seem to have multiple windows open on my laptop trying to multi-task or conduct a presentation in my home business.  It is helpful if you know how to connect two PCs for work or work and play games.

We’ll be describing how to do this in Windows systems. We’ll be referring to the two computers as ComputerA and ComputerB. Let’s begin the configuration.

ComputerA

– Right click on “My Computer” then click “Properties”

– Click the “Computer Name” tab and click the “Change…” button

– Change the name to the one you like. For this example we will name it ComputerA. Here you can also change the workgroup name to whatever you want but it must be the same in both computers. For this example we will name the workgoup “OURLAN”.

– Click OK

– On to the TCP/IP settings… Open “Control Panel” and click on “Network Connections”

– Your LAN connection will appear. Right click on its icon and select “Properties”.

– In the “General” tab select “Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)” then click on “Properties”

– Set the following values:

IP Address -> 192.168.72.1

Subnet Mask -> 255.255.255.0

Default Gateway -> 192.168.72.2

– Click OK and you are finished with ComputerA.

ComputerB

– Right click on “My Computer” then click “Properties”

– Click the “Computer Name” tab and click the “Change…” button

– Change the name to “ComputerB”. Also change the workgroup name to “OURLAN” (Remeber the workgroup name must be the same on both computers)

– Click OK

– On to the TCP/IP settings… Open “Control Panel” and click on “Network Connections”

– Your LAN connection will appear. Right click on its icon and select “Properties”.

– In the “General” tab select “Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)” then click on “Properties”

– Set the following values:

IP Address -> 192.168.72.2

Subnet Mask -> 255.255.255.0

Default Gateway -> 192.168.72.1

– Click OK and you are finished with ComputerB.

Now the two computers should be connected. If you don’t see them detecting each other try to restart them. You can play your favorite multiplayer games using the connection method above. You can also transfer files and data.

If you want to access the other computer just go to “My Network Places” A good idea would be to map a network drive to a local hard drive for easier access.
