Not exactly the cable needs to be a like this

You could netwrok the machines together via a router they do not need to have web access.

or directly using a crossover cable tutorial

CAT 5 is, I believe, what you want

CAT 6 is now avaiable but you can get patch and crossover in both.

If you are not goig via a router but direct from 1 pc to the other you need a crossover cable.
