|I want to build a local network in an office.|
The network will be between two Windows XP Pro machines that are sharing internet access via a LAN modem (an optical cable enters the modem and then two regular LAN cables exit the modem and enter the two PCs).
The goal is the two machines to be able to exchange files.
What should I do?
Just turn on file sharing for the folders that need to be shared?
Or do I need to have a separate LAN cable between the two PCs?
Needless to say that the two machines must be the only two on that network.
They should be the only two that access to the shared files, with no outside access to the network.
In other words: it must be some sort of a private network of only these two computers.
Any tips on how to do that?
