Hello,

I would like to know, how to configure two computers for sharing files. Its becoming difficult for us to transfer large amount of data from one PC to another. If two computers get connected, both the computer can share the data with one another.

Thanks.

Connect the two computers with a "crossover" LAN cable. This is a special type of cable meant just for connect two devices without a hub or router.

Then run "network wizard" on both PC's -
Then move the folders you want to share to the "Shared" directory or mark each folder as "shared" in explorer.
