I have a bit of a problem and was hoping someone could help..
I have a laptop in a hazardous environment (high RF emissions) which I want to control from a safe distance from another laptop.
How can I connect the two laptops directly (no network)? Can I use the ethernet cable that I use to connect to my office LAN?
If so, how can I assign an IP address to the remote laptop?
At the moment if I hover the mouse over the icon it shows the loopback IP address..
I am a bit of a newbie at this so please include some detail in your instructions.
Thank you in advance,
