Crossover cable with Vista X64 and Win x86
 
Does anyone have any suggestions for the following situation.


2 PC's connected with a crossover cable. The pc's run on vista x64 and windows xp pro 32bit.


I seem to be struggling a fair bit.


cheers

Enable Internet connection sharing over the host PC.


Also, you don't need a crossover cable, any modern Ethernet adapter will be able to detect when your PC<->PC rather than PC<->Network.

I assume you're trying to transfer files between the 2 pc's?

First things first, when you plug the cables in do you see a little green light come on when you plug in the Ethernet cable into the NIC?

what color?

ok, lets start from the top, make sure that there is a green light on both nics( this could indicate a duplex mismatch). Now set diffrent Ip's on each interface, set one to 192.168.1.1 netmask of 255.255.255.252, the second should get an ip of 192.168.1.2 255.255.255.252 now go to a command prompt on each machine and type ping 127.0.0.1. If this works then type the opposing machines ip address when doing a ping.

please give all outputs and error messages, this could be useful in diagnosing and other problems that maybe accuring.
