A cable specifically used in network situations involving only two computers.
By using a crossover-cable there is no need of a network hub, saving you money.
Often used in home situations and direct comunication between two network servers.
There are two variants:
-One using your COM/PARALEL ports. (not recomended: slow)
-And one using your Network Interface Card.
Check your local suplier for details, a good suplier always has a couple of crossover's on stock.
