Do you have a router??

What are the IP Settings on your PC and laptop?

What operating system are you using?

A little more info may help out.

Well using a crossover cable, you need to have a static ip on both the laptop and the pc. The need to be in the same logical network with diffrent addresses.

For instance a subnet of 255.255.255.0
Laptop IP 192.168.0.20
PC IP 192.168.0.1
Info on setting static ip in windows here under Round 2 after the rest.


Now if your dealing with a nt <windows nt4/2k/xp> to 9x <windows 95/98/me> windows opreating systems can sometimes have issues with standard windows file sharing. With other operating systems can be easier or more difficult. In these cases seting up a ftp server like Filezilla may be easier.

If it's xp to xp, make shur thier both in the same workgroup <right click on my computer and select properties -> computer name>.
Open the folder or drive containing the folder you want to share. Sele3ct from the tools -> folder options -> View -> Advanced settings, Uncheck "Use simple file sharing (recomended)" and ok.
Right click on the folder you want to share, click properties. Select Sharing, click share this folder and click permitions. Check Full Control, and press ok and ok.
On the other computer expore the My Network Places -> Entire Network -> MS Windows Network -> <your work group name> -> <First computer name> -> <folder name>

The reason flashfxp didn't work is you need one computer to be a ftp server and one to be a client. FlashFXP is a client, filezilla has 2 parts a client and a server...
