I've gotta a Win2K box and a Win XP box and I want to connect them using the LAN cards and a cross over cat 5 cable. The problem is this;
I configure both boxes LAN cards to have different IP's on the same subnet etc. I can then ping from the XP box to the Win2K box but when I try and ping the XP box from the Win 2K box I get request timed out !?!?!
I have shared folders on each box, there is no fire wall or anything flash being set up. Please help, this has only happened since I moved from Win 98 to XP.
I've done the fault finding on the boxes, all the hardware has checked out ok, any ideas peeps ?
