    Hey dudes,

    Recently i came across a problem.
    I need to connect two PCS via USB ports.

    How can i do that.??

    Please note that i need to connect using USB and not crossover cables.

    Will a USb-USB cable will suffice.

    Take CARE !!! It is NOT recommended to use a normal USB cable to connect 2 computers - read this page for more info...

    ....... and a much better option IMHO. All you need is 2 el-cheapo LAN cards and a crossed LAN cable.
