hello,
I need to backup data from laptop and do not have any huge enough portable drive. I thought perhaps I could just connect desktop to the laptop with a network cable, I did but it does not work.
Do I need to enter some settings manually? If you could give me some start points it would be great...

Well if you were going with one cable from one PC to another, you would need what is called a Crossover cable - a normal Ethernet cable wouldn't do the trick. I would assume that is your first problem.

Additionally, they both need to have File and Printer Sharing setup, similar network settings, etc.
