Connect 2 PC's on different networks but in the same room
Dear Linux users,
In short my question is: how can I connect two computers which are connected to different corporate networks but which are in the same room.
At my office I have a desktop and a laptop. The laptop is connected to my work's network via an ethernet cable in a wall socket. My desktop is connected to the network of another organization which is in the same building via an ethernet cable in another wall socket. This is so because I need access to both networks. However, I want to exchange files between the two computers, and also run commands from one on the other. I would prefer to do this through SSH.
What is the best way to achieve this?
The laptop has WiFi and my work provides wireless access to its network. The desktop lacks bluetooth. Both my computers run OpenSuse 12.1.
Thank you for any suggestions.
