You already said (in your initial question) they are both local host sites.

@Per has given you the answer: the link to J2XML which will assist you in exporting, and importing the data you want to copy between sites.

J2XML is for moving articles etc between sites local to local, local to live, live to local or live to live. Where the site is located shouldn't make a difference.
