One PC is running Windows 7, and another one is running GNU/Linux 16.04. My goal is to transfer 75GB big data from one to the other.I have ethernet cable and I have already tried creating LAN(TCP/IP v4 protocol) on Windows and Linux also with these settings:
IP Adress: 192.168.0.2 Mask: 255.255.255.0
IP Adress: 192.168.0.3 (These IP's are different in one number) Mask: 255.255.255.0
I plugged cable directly on these two PCs, but from one PC I cannot acces to other. I've checked file sharing in Windows. After typing ping 192.168.0.2 in Terminal, I got: $ ping 192.168.0.2 PING 192.168.0.2 (192.168.0.2) 56(84) bytes of data. 64 bytes from 192.168.0.2: icmp_seq=1 ttl=128 time=0.420 ms 64 bytes from 192.168.0.2: icmp_seq=2 ttl=128 time=0.315 ms
So I have 2 questins: 1) How to connect these two and fulfill my task, i.e. transfer such big data without an external hard disc? 2) Are crossover and ordinary LAN cables the same thing?
