I'm not Jimbo but make sure that the drive on the destination PC is shared & open it with the IP address in the run box with two back slashes.

Example \\192.168.1.100

Thanks for the answer but I don't quite understand the second part when you say to open it with the ip address in the run box ! Can you please explain it to me ?

The same IP that you are trying to use in the command line can be used in the run box with two back slashes in front of it.

Click start, run, type

\\192.168.x.x. or whatever the IP is. Press enter.

it connected but the pc was las with me

What does that mean?
No lan =no network= no connection.

No lan no ftp.

Have you created a network? A workgroup? Shares on each? Same logon account with same password on each?

are you familiar with the OSI model?

if you don't have a physical connection you can't do any of the other layers.
