Do you want to share files between two computers only whether it may be at work or at your home? If it is you can connect two computers together using a LAN cable only.
For this insert a LAN cable to the LAN ports of two computers.
Now go to “Control Panel” and click on “Network and Sharing Center”
Now you should see the following screen.
A computer doesn’t understand the name so you need to give an address. You can give any address like “192.168.1.20”
You can put any number as the last digit except “1”. For subnet mask it automatically appears “255.255.255.0”
For another computer you have to repeat the same process as above and give the ip address different e.g “192.168.1.21“.
Now your computers are connected.
Now you can share any folder from any computer.
Example I want to share “D:” drive of this computer.
I will open “My Computer” icon from the desktop.
Right click on “D:” drive.
Now your “D :” drive is shared.
This is how you connect two computers together using a LAN cable.
How to access shared folder or drive?
Double click on “My computer” icon on the desktop.
Now from the left side click on “Network” icon. You will see all the shared computers.
I can open “Kundandamak” to view the shared files, folders or drive from the other computer.
Click on “Start” button and in the search box type the address of the other computer.
Two backslash and the IP address of the computer.
