I was able to change their IP's so that they are in a direct connection, and I can even ping them. Through this I'm pretty sure that they're technically communicating with each other ( with this guide http://www.herongyan...crossover.html)
However, when I look on Network Mapping, they do not appear on each other's Browse lists. My laptop is Vista, and my desktop is XP, but I don't think that is a problem, since I'm not trying to transfer OS specific files (just music and photos)
I am sure that a firewall is not affecting this, since I ahve turned off both Norton and Windows firewalls during these attempts.
If I can get these two computers on the same network, I know how to transfer files, but its this initial hurdle I can't even get over.
So does anyone know what might be causing this lack of network connectivity, and how to fix it?
