Operating System Version: Windows XP Home & Professional
Problem Application Name & Version:
Problem Hardware Make & Model:
Error Messages:

I cannot connect my Virtual PC for Mac 7.0 with Windows XP Home Edition to my Emachines running Windows XP Professional through a wireless network, so I have decided to try and use a DSL cable. I plugged each end in, one into the LAN port on my Mac, and the other into the LAN port on my PC.

My question is, how do I activate this, so I can transfer files from my PC onto my Mac? I have tried setting up networks to no avail. Using Virtual PC for Mac 7, for those of you who don't know what this is, it is litterally Windows XP on my macintosh computer. I am running OS X 10.4 Tiger, however in a seperate window, I can also run Windows XP Home at the same time.

Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks

You will need something like THIS.

A crossover cable, available at any computer shop in the world. It simply switches 2(? maybe 4) wires inside so that you can connect directly computer to computer.
