Sharing files in a computer to computer connection?

How can you do it?

You can connect them directly with a crossover ethernet cable, or you can connect them via an ethernet switch.

There are also purpose-built USB cables that can do it. That might be the easiest.

The problem is we have to bring our laptops to class and do our work individually. My friends and I want to share answers so it is faster, but obviously if we are passing around the USB, we would get caught. There also wouldn't be an internet connection.

You could create peer-to-peer network between your laptops. You could do this wirelessly. Then just set the folders you want to share the answers in to share with the proper permissions so you can all manipulate the folder.

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/l.../bb457079.aspx (Peer to peer network should be for XP and Vista)

http://www.smallbusinesscomputing.co...le.php/3508246 (Also peer to peer set up)

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/304040 (File Sharing XP)

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/l.../bb727037.aspx (FileSharing Vista)

Costs a lot to be a dumb**** lol
