Hello all

Me and my friend are trying to link our two computers together and cant seem to get it to work. we are both running XP home and have tried with a direct ethernet link and with a firewire link and they just wont work together.

Any help and advice will be appreciated

First make sure you are using a Crossover cable click here to check which you have.

Next disable the XP firewall and run the network wizard.

looking at similar scenario myself, would the
crossover cable work via modem/router or is a directlink required?
