    I know how to find the IP adress. The laptop is window 8.1 while the desktop is windows Xp Service Pk 3. I can aswell change the desktop to windows 8.1 if that will hinder the communication between the two of them. All I want to achieve is to be able to use the 2 as if is one. Working on the Laptop and automatically is also been seen and saved on the desktop or vice versa.
