Theoretically, if it's an O/S such as NT, 2000 or XP, you could assign a
secondary, "private" IP, such as 192.168.1.x to both laptops, and use a
cross-over cable between them. Failing that, you would need to assign it a
fixed IP as above, but then reset it back to using the default method,
probably DHCP, of obtaining an IP address. If you are unfamiliar with the
above, you should probably find someone in your IT department who can
explain this to you and show you how to do it... Unfortunately, the
specifics of these methods are beyond the scope of this list.

Subject: Direct connection with PC problem!!
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
I am a bit of a newbie at this so please include some detail in your
Thank you in advance,
