I have a windows vista computer and a computer with ubuntu linux installed and I am wondering if it is possible to connect those two computers using a rj45 crossover cable so I can connect on games

is there anyway to do this?

I used to have my linux machine host a cool Native game all of the time, through remote desktop connections, Windows Xp to Ubuntu.

there is nothing special , just make certain that the machine are in the same workgroup, and you have created a username for the remote machine.

I have never ran an Ubuntu game from a windows machine, I have always connected via remote desktop, and ran it like I was sitting at the ubuntu machine.

Let us know if you need more elaborate details and instructions.
