Setting up a mini-network on your desk top...

Unfortunately, this requires a bit of forethought...which is the more likely of the two to go belly up? Set that up as the client and the better of the two as host.

It is assumed that you have two viable computers in operational mode, not one on life support and the other awaiting instructions from the HeadMedicalOfficer... :whistling: Otherwise this won't work...as far as I can tell.
