Ok, I'm trying to set a private LAN between my Windows 7 pc, and a Xp Pro pc that I'm using for dev stuff.
The Windows 7 currently connects to the net via a wireless adapter which connects to a router which connects to the internet.
This has a set IP address of 192.168.1.15
However, I do not want the Dev system to have the internet, which at the moment is doesn't
I have connected the two machines with a cross over cable.
On the Xp Pro machine, the TCP/IP is currently setup as:
And thats all.
The settings on my Windows 7 pc for this LAN network were set to:
but this keeps defaulting to
However, the connection does work from the Windows 7 to the XP pro machine, but not the other way. Again I'm too worried about this.
The main issue I have is that the LAN is shown in Windows 7 as a public Unidentified network network. I wish to change that?
Any ideas. Hope I've been clear ,and please tell me if I have set this up completly wrong.
My main goal is to have the two pc''s connect to each other, on a completely different network (IP addresses etc) from the Windows 7 and the internet.
