What operating system on each computer? MacOSX is real easy to connect to peecees and other machines. it's easy the other way around now as well. Mac OSX supports SAMBA which is a UNIX variety of using windows networking so connecting windows to Macs is easier now.

If you mean not on the same network as in two different subnets, then I don't see why there would be a problem. Are they different network topologies?

Another trick I learned when having home networking issues was to put copies of the files i wanted to share in the Documents folder of the Apache Webserver and access them via a browser from the PC. You can download them that way. Also FTP would work.

But if you don't have anyway for them to see eachother try a flash drive.
