# Tutorial: Peer-to-Peer Network and File Sharing using LAN Cable

**Welcome to our tutorial on setting up a peer-to-peer network and file sharing using a LAN cable!** In this video, we will guide you step-by-step through the process of connecting two PCs and enabling seamless file sharing between them.

To start, we’ll show you how to physically connect the first PC to the second PC using the available Ethernet ports. Simply insert one end of the LAN cable into each PC’s Ethernet port and ensure that the indicator lights start blinking, indicating successful connection.

Once the PCs are physically connected, we need to make some changes in the system settings. First, go to the search bar and open the Control Panel. Then, navigate to “Network and Sharing Center” and select “Change adapter settings”.

In the “Ethernet” tab, right-click and choose “Properties”. From there, select “Internet Protocol Version 4” and click “Properties” again. Here, choose “Use the following IP address” and enter “” as the IP address. Leave the subnet mask field blank. Click “OK” and “Close” to save the settings.

Now that the first PC is configured, let’s move on to the second PC. Follow the same steps as before: open Control Panel, go to “Network and Sharing Center”, and select “Change adapter settings”. In the “Ethernet” tab, right-click, choose “Properties”, and select “Internet Protocol Version 4”. Enter the same IP address as before: “”. Once again, leave the subnet mask field blank.

To test if the two PCs are successfully connected, open the “Command Prompt” from the search bar and type “ping”. If you receive a response, it means that the PCs are connected. Repeat this step on the second PC as well, using the same command.

Now, let’s proceed to share files between the two PCs. Open “File Explorer” and navigate to the document folder. Choose a file you want to share, right-click, and select “Properties”. In the “General” tab, click on “Sharing” and then select “Advanced Sharing”. Check the “Share this folder” option, click “OK”, and then click “Share” in the “Share” menu. Choose “Everyone” and click “Add”. Select “Read” and “Write” permissions and click “Share”.

Repeat these steps on the second PC to ensure that files can be shared both ways. To check if the file has been shared successfully, press the Windows key + R simultaneously, type “\\” in the “Run” dialog box, and press “OK”. If all went well, you should be able to access the shared files.

Congratulations! You have successfully set up a peer-to-peer network and enabled file sharing using a LAN cable. We hope this tutorial was helpful. If you have any questions, please leave a comment below.
