There are many purposes to connect two devices. Mainly it should be to exchange files or may be to have full control over the network. Both of these can be achieved through connection through network by using an Ethernet cable or Wireless network.

Then you can use the tools called Remote desktop manager or even by SMB file transfer protocol that runs over a secured layer.

If you want to connect or network two computers directly, you cannot use a standard network cable because it will not work. A standard network cable is designed to connect a computer to a hub to connect to other computers on the network. There are three types of cable used on the computer: straight-through, crossover, and rollover.

The first two are the ones used on the network to carry data while the last type, the rollover cable, is not designed to carry data. The rollover cable is used mainly for programming or to create an interface with the device to make programming changes. The straight-through cable is the one I’m referring to as the standard network cable which connects a workstation to a hub.

The crossover cable is the one you need to connect one computer to another directly. You can buy a crossover cable on any computer online store like these ones on eBay:
