• Connecting 2 arch PCs with cross over cable


    Hi all,

    How would I go about connecting 2 machines using cross over cable?
    

    Here’s an image of cross over cable.

    The wired connection does appear in the network tab. Don’t know how to proceed beyond that.

    Thanks.

    then … connection is established…

  • @joekamprad Thank you for the reply.
    How would I ping one machine from another?

    When I type ifconfig, there’s no IPV4 address.

    Tried creating a new network profile. Didn’t know what to use for the settings.
    Was able to ping localhost using my manually assigned ip.
    What happened to the other end of the connection?

  • you will need to give them both a ip adress, as there is no server doing this?

    trying now
    joekamprad
    
    if it do not work without DNS then same as ther IP adress
    
    gateway can also be the same as the IP Adress
    joekamprad
    
    Gateway may need to be crossed, so on PC1 the ip of PC2 and crosswise…

    one last thing. I didn't have to fill the gateway field. just the ip addresses and masks were sufficient.
