Quick Solution to File Transfer

  Genius1 08:18 23 Aug 07

I am attempting to transfer a large (30GB) folder from Public Documents on my Vista Home Premium PC to the Shared Documents folder on my XP Professional PC.

I have tried to set up a tempory network using the two ethernet cards on both my PCs and a crossover cable. The workgroup name is the same, and I've attempted to make sure the IP addresses are similar and the subnet mask is the same.

But neither computer will show up on the other, and on the Vista PC, the network shows as 'unidentified'.

Please could someone help?
Thanks in advance.

Have you used the Network Set-up Wizard?

Have run it on XP, but how do I do it in Vista?
