    i have 2 machines with XP and win2003 and both have manual IP in same subnet;
    i want to access window 2003 via IE and also shared folders and vice versa?

    both cant ping each other; i tried editing the host file in XP to access
    win2003 but still no luck; my firewall is on in both and if i need to check
    something here then kindly tell the sections to check.

    they are in same workgroup but still no luck;

    pls help

    Please refine this statement. Do both systems have static IP addresses?

    If in the XP system this is the C:\Windows\system32\drivers\etc\HOSTS
    file, please quote the exact entry here.

    The IP address of the other may have been mistakenly blocked in the
    HOSTS file.
