So...I've been struggling with trying to get my freaking network set up the way I'd like. I've googled and watched so many tutorials an none seem to work for me. I was hoping that someone here might be able to assist me.
So here's what I'm trying to do. I have two computers. One I run c4d on and it has a few gpus in it. The second I use as a render client. Has a few gpus in it. I use octane. I am a remote employee for a company and as such have to abide by certain rules. The biggest being that I cannot leave either computer connected to the internet all of the time, for security purposes. I use my wifi to pop on to check email etc.
So what I currently want to do...is have both computers connected together via an ethernet chord and hae it so that they communicate with each other and allow for file sharing etc without that internet connection. Then when I need the internet I just pop on the wifi. I've tried setting up home groups. But my computer says its a public network and wont let me change it to a private network. I've tried setting static ip addresses etc and just can't figure it out. Any ideas?
