    What is the IP of the computer in question, and the computers that are attempting to ping it?

    Check to make sure the firewall SERVICE is off. Are there any other firewalls on said computer?

      Hello to all forum


      Pc in question after the installation of sp2 is no longer seen by other PC LAN network

      does not accept either ping from the other PC LAN

      There arent firewalls there isonly the firewall installed whith service pack 2 of xp
      but it is disable and can't be actived

      uninstalling the service pack 2 the pc returns to be visible
      i can ping it and can work as a file server

      Many thanks for your interest

        That is a BAD IDEA. You want to keep your computers up to date! You're just asking for bad things to happen by keeping the computer unsafe instead of fixing it.

          Hello wired




          sorry for my language

          I am not explaining well
          I have to keep the PC updated

          This is precisely the problem

          But when I install the sp2, PC is isolated
          No longer working as a server

          And I am obliged to bring it to sp1 until the solution of The problem

            XP is not a server OS, so I'm not surprised it's not working as a server. Disable Windows Firewall, check your IP configuration.

            In fact, in a command prompt, do an IPCONFIG /ALL on the broken PC with SP2, and do an IPCONFIG /ALL on a working PC. Post the results of both here (take out DNS domain names, server names etc)
