I have two computers that both have 1 GBLAN. I want to connect one of these as a second computer so it can be operated with the same keyboard, mouse and moniter as my mail computer. It will be in a close physical proximity to my main computer and my main also uses standard dial-up modem. Could I connect these two computers together just using the LAN connectors directly between the two computers, or would I need to use a wired or wireless router? I would rather not if I don't have to. This would be by using the Remote Desktop that XP has.
