    Re: Home NEt vista-xp

    Is anything shared from the XP.
    Is there any other software that may have a firewall invovled?

    From what you have written I believe you can ping from the XP to the vista but not from the vista to the XP. Is it just a switch in between them?
    cheers

      Re: Home NEt vista-xp

      A lot of information missing here.
      Please answer these questions before we move further:
      - how are the IP addresses assigned to your computers? Manually, or by DHCP?
      - what do you mean by connect? Remote Desktop? Shared resources?
      - double check the IP addresses on both XP and Vista computers and see that the settings are correct. Especially check the subnet mask and the gateway on Vista...

      Post back the results ( and the answers) and we'll see...
