WD Discovery via crossover cable

Has anyone been able to see the hard drive attached to the WD TV Live through the WD Discovery software via a crossover cable between your pc and the WD TV Live.

I configured both my PC and the WD TV Live with a /24 IP, was able to ping from the pc to the device but once the WD Discovery software was ran, was still unable to find any hard drives.

Im just wondering if anyone has completed this task or if it was even possible. Thanks
