How to set up connection between between 2 windows 8 PC using WiFi Direct? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi..

    How to setup a connection and transfer files between 2 windows 8 (or windows 8.1 ) machines using WiFi Direct.

    Do we need some app for this one or can we directly transfer?

    Do we need to make some change in network settings?

    I am sure that that my card and driver support WiFi Direct feature.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks  in advance

    NOTE: If I ask for code, please provide something that I can drop directly into a project and run (including XAML), or an actual application project. I'm trying to help a lot of people, so I don't have time to figure out weird snippets with undefined objects and unknown namespaces.
