Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Can you check the firewall settings in both the PCs, if they are enabled disable them, check your IP address settings and the default gateway as well. What are the IP address you are using in both pc’s do let me know as well. Make sure the cross cable is crimped well.

    1. just disable all firewalls from antivirus or windows 2. just use simple ip like 192.168.1.2 and 3, subnet at 255.255.255.0 and gateway at 192.168.1.1 3. if all the on top cannot work, check your network cable.
