Hi, I need some expert networking advise here. I have to connect two different PC together via a unique ethernet path. Please see attach picture. I however cannot go thru a switch or a hub.
**my setup requires using external USB to Ethernet converters on both sides of the PC.
My question for the experts is.. The two PCs can only ping successfully when I use a regular Ethernet cable (straight-thru, i believe its known as T568A). I have always thought this PC to PC Ethernet link will require a T568B crossover cable instead.
This puzzled me. Can somebody confirm this is actually indeed what it should be, and help me understand how this works?
