1. Create a crossover cable.
Once side (orange/white, orange, green/white, blue, blue/white, green, brown/white,brown)
Other side (green/white, green, Orange/white, blue, blue/white, Orange, brown/white, brown)

2. Plug the crossover Cable into the machines.
3. Configure IP address as static. (192.168.1.1 & 192.168.1.2) (or leave IP address as APIPA)
4. Enjoy the connection.

So these PC's will not be connected to the internet?
