You can connect both to the same network (router, switch via cable or wifi) and share whatever you need to access. If that is not possible then you can connect them with a cat5 cable or wireless signal.
For a derect connection you will need to manually asign both devices an IP address, for instance:
PC1=IP:192.168.1.1 SM:255.255.255.0
PC2=IP:192.168.1.2 SM:255.255.255.0
If you plan to do this over Wifi you will need to set up an AdHoc network manually through your Network settings.
