    well you will get much more help in networking forum so i will relocate you there but i would like to tell you that both computers need to have different and valid IP address.
    whatever subnet mask you put in there should be same on both PC's. usually it is 255.255.255.0

    I got it to work all that was wrong was my fire wall was on and wouldn't let me connect to my other computer. I guess we learn as we go along.
    Thanks to every one who Replied to my post Budlite.
