direct internet connection procedure

Postby THUFIR » 30 Mar 2013, 10:06

I want to connect a computer running the rescue CD to one running XP with a direct ethernet connection -- no router.

The pc running XP gets an internet connection from wifi (the router is inacessible). Basically, just assign the pc being rescued an IP address to the same subnet, set the netmask to the same value (255.255.255.0 probably) and then just run a command like:

"scp /home/ubuntu/myfile C:\users\Anshul\Desktop"
http://stackoverflow.com/a/14289714/262852

something along those lines, after installing, say:

http://winscp.net/eng/index.php

onto the pc running XP.


Is that the basic idea?

Pardon, thought it was implicit within the question: transfer files from the broken PC to the working PC. (Linux -> Windows XP)

The misapprehension was the word internet vs. network
there are many ways and situations to do this.

Is this what you search?

Its also possible to use the sysrcd built in http server. It is faster on slow hardware because the data is not encrypted.

Yes, my primary concern being the direct ethernet connection and getting the computer to which the data will copied onto the same network.

The computer to which data will be copied has a built-in wifi adapter and connects wirelessly to the router and so has an internet connection. It's IP address is along the lines of 192.x.x.x, however that's for the wifi adapter. Should the ethernet NIC for the computer to which data will be copied be in the same range and have otherwise the same settings as that of the wifi card?

No. you get less problems with routing if every NIC of one PC use its own subnet.

Use things like 192.168.55.x Netmask 255.255.255.0 for the "rescue" network.
the 55 stand for any address expect the address used for the internet connection.
