I have a laptop running Ubuntu 12.04 and a netbook running Ubuntu 12.10. I want to sync some folders from my laptop on my netbook, connecting them with an ethernet cable.
Both computers are offline, and I don't want to (eventually) share files through my office LAN.
What options do I have? Can I use Unison? What do I have to do in order to "connect" the two computers? (i.e. I have to manually set IPs on them, IPv4 settings, and so on).
