    Just create a workgroup and then you'll be able to see the other computer right from yours.

    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.

    2. Configure your network ip and subnet --> see Suman Acharya.
    3. Configure your sharing --> See Dalsan comment.
    4. Finished
