I think it's what you are searching for...
Hope it helps!
if the 2 PCs are in the same network/subnet, you can transfer using LAN.
Use teamviewer because it is the best
If you want them to sync via the internet, you can try something like Cubby. Set it up to sync the folders you want (it could be My Documents etc) between computers. If the folder is more than 5GB, you can't sync it to their online locations, but you can sync between computers.
1. Create a cross cable. Follow this step and connect it to both of the computer.
2. Configure your network ip and subnet --> see Suman Acharya.
3. Configure your sharing --> See Dalsan comment.
