I'm trying to connect my laptop to my Raspberry PI with just a LAN cable and without a router because I don't have one. So I just configured a static IP in both the devices and tried to setup a network between them. It appears that the network has been established but when I try to ping (to check whether they are able to communicate or not) my Windows laptop from the Raspberry PI then it is not able to ping but when I ping my Raspberry PI from laptop it pings successfully. My real problem is actually that I am not able to ssh from the laptop to the Raspberry PI through ethernet. The description about pinging I gave just because I thought it will be related to same problem because of which I cannot ssh from laptop to the Raspberry PI, and that the ping description may help you to find the solution to my problem.
Please help me to fix my problem, and be able to access my Raspberry from my laptop.
What kind of additional network detail and configuration should I provide you for the help?
