    Configure your computers to have same Workgroup name and similar IP addresses. Then, set up share permissions for whatever folders you want to share... Exact details will depend on which version of Windows you are running...

    ya that stuff abt windows is k. i have that thing setup but what i wanted to know that is there some software which is like P2P stuff on the web. the problem with windows sharing is that ppl tend to run stuff off ur pc which really makes the pc dead slow. also if u provide password protection then again u r doing restrictive sharing. soo plz something along this line

    You can download Sync Toy Setup from Microsoft's Website.
    It's a good feature and provide bunch of options.

    You won't need anything else. :wink:

    Right click My Computer and select property. In the tab Computer Name, set Workgroup to match each other and give each unique name to identify system... Next, go to Network Connections. You should have a LAN entry if you have a ethernet card with drivers installed. Here, right-click, select property... In the list of installed items, select TCP/IP and select property... Enter similar IP addresses for you and your friend (192.168.0.1 and 192.168.0.2)... Note that IP address should preferably have the above starting 3 numbers 192.168.0.x... There are a few others also allowed for LAN... Rest are for internet...

    Now, you should be able to see the other computer in Network Neighbourhood->View Workgroup Computers...
