    the configuration is mostly done on the os of the computers you like to connect and depends in what way you like to connect them.
    basically make sure they are in the same ip subnet meams the first 3 ip blocks need to match and the fourth need to be diffrent.

    1. What kind of communication you want to establish - ftp, www or something else ?
    2. As the guy above mentioned you have to be sure that both PCs are in the same network let's say 192.168.1.0/24 in order to be able to see each other.
    3. Most probably you have a firewall set up , which has to be taken into consideration also

    So 1 step make sure that 2 ports which both PCs use on the switch are green
    2 make sure and if needed assign IPs from the same subnet - for example PC A-> IP: 192.168.1.100 Mask: 255.255.255.0 (24 bits mask);
    PC B IP: 192.168.1.101 Mask: 255.255.255.0 (24 bits mask);
    3 from PC A type in command shell ping 192.168.1.101
    if needed change settings of the firewall to allow pings
    AS long As you make ping workable you have your connection at level 4 (Transport)
    Further settings needed for upper levels applications required like FTP, WWW, which I'm sure you know how to do it

    Sorry for my late answer . If the PCs are in the same subnet they usually don't need a gateway.
