  1. If they both have ethernet network connectors you probably just need a crossover version of an ethernet cable.

    Or connect via a router using regular ethernet cables -- you might try wireless but start by connecting them wired.

    Third alternative is wireless adhoc network directly between the two machines.

    Remember to turn off the firewall in both machines. Check out if C&C has networking settings which may save you reading up on how to do it with Windows.
