Win 2003 machine can't see Win XP machine that is using ICS

Hi there

I have enabled ICS (Internet Connection Sharing) on my XP Pro machine in
order to setup a small remote network on my garage. The XP machine connects
to the internet via a wireless internet connection. I have enabled DHCP on
the LAN connection on this machine. This machine is then connected to a hub
via a network cable. I then have a second machine that is running win 2003
server that also has the LAN connection set to DHCP, and which is also
connected to the same hub. Both machines LAN connections are assigned IPs by
ICS on the XP machine.

I can ping the 2003 machine from the XP host.
I can explore any shared drives / folders on the 2003 machine from the XP
host.
The XP host has internet connectivity - I can surf and get email.

I cannot ping the XP machine from the 2003 machine, but the 2003 machine
DOES resolve the correct IP number if I type ping turoc (turoc being the name
of the XP host machine).
I cannot ping any websites from the 2003 machine, BUT it does resolve the
correct IP number for any given website (like if I type ping www.google.com,
I get Pinging www.google.com(168.223.456.678 or whatever the IP is) ...

BUT the I get a request timed out error message ?

So the problem is that I can see the 2003 machine in its entirety, and can
access it from theXP machine, but I cannot see or access the XP host machine
from the win 2003 machine, nor can I surf the internet from this machine.

I am sure its a permission problem or something similar, but I do not know
how to fix it.

Please help. I really need to get this sorted out.

Thanks in advance
Sian

Hi Sian,

One of the most common causes of this problem would be a misconfigured or
overlooked personal firewall, or other security component. There are several
other possibilities too, and any might be the cause of your problem. Read this
article with an open mind.

For more direct help, provide "browstat status" and "ipconfig /all" from each
computer, so we can diagnose the problem. Read this article, and linked
articles, and follow instructions precisely (download browstat!):
