i have one more question. how to make a connection using lan between two pc? they use a same ip address?
You can't have two PCs on the same LAN with the same IP address. What kind of connection are you trying to make?
1 )conect both with lan wire
2) open tcp /ip in lan addapter seeting
ip address for pc 1
ip address for pc 2
use same numbers
its ready now
@urtrivedi - I am assuming that because you are using private IP addreses that
In that case, the address of the gateway (I'm also assuming the third address in each group is the gateway) should be the address of the router. Many routers reserve 192.168.1.1 for themselves. In that case the addresses should be more like
PC1 192.168.1.2 SUBNET MASK 255.255.255.0 GATEWAY 192.168.1.1 (router) PC2 192.168.1.3 SUBNET MASK 255.255.255.0 GATEWAY 192.168.1.1 (router)
im trying to make a chat messenger between two pc. you say hi, and the other pc receive it and reply it back to you. but i dont know what connection they have to make a connection. i studied, i googled, but i dont understand enough. i hope someone can clear me out about this. thankyou very much :)
Messagner is another issue. and networking is different.
What I suggested is to connect 2 pc directly to each other only with simple lan cable.
Now you have to write your messager program.
Then you have to run messanger in both pc and send/receive messages.
i already do the messenger. but the other pc cannot receive the msg that i send because i think i made a wrong connection.
there are several things to consider.
Are you using one cable or going through a switch?
If it's one cable a regular ethernet cable won't work, it has to be a crossover. On the other hand a switch will handle the crossover so 2 ethernet cables will work.
Is your firewall(s) configure to allow the connection?
Also what is assigning your IP addresses? Are they configured properly in the software on each machine?
There may be other things I can't think of right now but this should be a good start.
If you can't ping the other IP address, you'll never get it to work...
ping 192.168.1.2; on computer #2 the command would be
If ping doesn't get a reply, then your "network" is not working.
