If you goal is to have a ticketing station consisting of two computers running off of the same database, you have two possible solutions. You can either use a Crossover cable to connect them directly to one another or you can setup a network using a Router.
A Crossover cable looks almost identical to a standard network cable; however the wire configuration inside is slightly different and they are not interchangeable. A standard networking cable will allow you to connect multiple computers to a router or a modem while a Crossover cable is designed to create a peer to peer network where only two computers are directly connected to each other.
The advantage of using a Crossover cable over a router is that you don’t need an extra power source for the router and you will have fewer wires to worry about.
