I want to connect my Work Tablet PC ,XP, to my Home PC, also XP. I have connected them with an ethernet cable. The Local Area Connection on both say that their status is "Network cable unplugged, Firewalled". I have tried 2 new ethernet cables.
Both PCs are connected wirelessly to a BT home hub and can access the Internet.
Is it possible for me to connect the 2 computers with the ethernet cable so that I can access the hard drive of my Home computer on my Work computer?
