Hi,

Choose a network for you locally administrated network (not public 
internet IPs)
One valid range could be:
192.168.0.x
Means you can assign IPs from 192.168.0.1 to 192.168.0.254
You can't assign IP 192.168.0.0 (this is not valid, '0' terminated means 
network) and 192.168.0.255 (this one is for the "broadcast".
Choose: 192.168.0.1 and 192.168.0.2
The network mask is 255.255.255.0 in this case for all computers in your 
network.
Install openssh-server and openssh-client packages in both computers
Then, using konqueror, type the url: sftp://yourusername@192.168.0.1 or 
sftp://yourusername@192.168.0.2

Additional networking can be achieved using SAMBA (Microsoft file 
sharing) and NFS (traditional Unix Network File System, has security 
problems).

Hope it helps.
