In this tutorial we are going to show you how to transfer data from one computer to another. We need to PC/Laptop and a crossover cable to transfer data.

PC 1

Step1: Go to “Open Networking and Sharing Center“.
Step2: Click on “Local Area Connection“.
Step3: Now click on “Properties“.
Step4: Double click on “Internet Protocol Version 4(TCP/IPv6)“.
Step5: Click on “Use the following IP address:” and enter the IP address: as 192.168.1.1 and just give a click on Subnet mask. Once done click “Ok” and close it.

PC 2

Step1: Go to “Open Networking and Sharing Center“.
Step2: Click on “Local Area Connection“.
Step3: Now click on “Properties“.
Step4: Double click on “Internet Protocol Version 4(TCP/IPv6)“.
Step5: Click on “Use the following IP address:” and enter the IP address: as 192.168.1.2 and just give a click on Subnet mask. Once done click “Ok” and close it.

Now  two computers are connected. To share files we need to give access to our drives, so follow the commands given below to give access to your drivers.

Step1: Click on “Computer“.
Step2: Right click on driver and then Properties.
Step3: Click on “Sharing” tab and then Advance Sharing and then check out Share the folder
Step4: Click on Permissions to give control on the other PC and once done click “Ok” and close it
Step5: Click Security and then go onto Advance Settings > Change Permissions > Add > Advance > Find Now at bottom click Everyone

Note: If you share your data via WiFi the data transfer will be 1-2MB and if you share the data via Lan cable the data transfer will be 10-12MB

    Some say you need a special type of utp cable with tx and rx wires crossed over – crossover cable. Most devices today have crossover sensing and will work with both types of cable. But not sure what happens when both devices try sense each other out! 😀

    If you are on a wifi network all you have to do is share the folder or file with Everyone, then any other device can find and copy to the files. And don’t forget once you have shared this file to remove Everyone from Properties or this file WILL be open for anyone!!

    There is no need to do things this way anymore!! No cables and/or DON’T change WiFi Settings.

    I think it is extremely important here to ensure you inform tbe users of the possible risks involved with having an open share like that on any computer.

    When they connect back to their everyday network they will still have an accessable open share to anyone else on the network.

    Or you can just add the computer to your network thru “Network and Sharing”and not go thru all these steps.
    You can then remove the other computer from the network when done.

    No crossover needed unless you have really old equip. Almost all nics and switches auto crossover. You will also need a user account that is password protected on the computer you are connecting to, for the client to authenticate with. There are additional steps you can perform to disable the need for user / password but it’s not recommended

    Maybe Windows 7 has a switching ability similar to the one Android does with micro USB ports on phones and tablets (Charge/Device input/USB Stick Reading etc)

    Wouldn’t you need a crossover cable, not a standard lan cable?
