XP - Ping one way but not other?


C

chrisdman

Hi,

I have 2 Computers - Laptop (A) and PC (B).

"A" is running XP Pro (SP3) with a belkin wireless adaptor (connected to
router).
"B" is running XP Home (SP3) with a cable connection to a belkin wireless
router.

Right........

PC "B" can ping the router and Laptop "A".
Laptop "A" can ping the router but not PC "B".

Both systems have very little on them and I have tried disabling the
standard windows firewall on both (no other firewalls installed on either
yet).

The file-sharing works fine on PC "B". I can transfer files to and from the
laptop "A" and all is fine (all shared folders from "A"+"B" are visable on PC
"B")

On Laptop "A" I am unable to see any shared folders from PC "B".
When I click on "view network computers" in "my network places" on Laptop
"A" the PC "B" has an icon there but shows an error when I try to connect to
it:

"\\Sarah1 is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this
network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you
have access permissions.

The network path was not found"


Laptop "A" is called "BOB" and has a static IP address of 192.168.1.8
PC "B" is called "Sarah1" and has a static IP address of 192.168.1.7

Ping shots and ipconfig/all from laptop "A".

A setting on Laptop A is not allowing ICMP packets to enter the OS.
Usually, the problem is a misconfigured firewall (or overlooked). Go no
further until you can get the ping problem resolved.

"B" is running XP Home (SP3) with a cable connection to a belkin
wireless router.

When I click on "view network computers" in "my network places" on
Laptop "A" the PC "B" has an icon there but shows an error when I
try to connect to it:

"\\Sarah1 is not accessible. You might not have permission to use
this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to
find out if you have access permissions.

Laptop "A" is called "BOB" and has a static IP address of
192.168.1.8 PC "B" is called "Sarah1" and has a static IP address
of 192.168.1.7

This sure smells like a firewall problem on Camputer B. Make sure
computer B does not have a firewall running on it. Look for hidden
ones too --- for example if you use the Cisco VPN Client, it includes a
firewall that is active even when the client isn't (unless you disable
it).

Did things ever work? If so, what changes were made to the system after
which the problems started?

What antivirus application is running on each computer? Some a/v apps
(notably Norton) include an "Internet Worm Protection" feature that
actually is a firewall and needs to be configured.

Do you have nVidia NICs on your motherboard? Some nVidia chips have a
built-in firewall: http://www.nvidia.com/object/security.html

Lem,

Thanks for getting back to me.

The PC has a Nvidia chip on it (on-board graphics) and I am in the process
of removing this (or try to!).

Is there any way to know if any more things are blocking this?

Thanks,

Chirs.

I hope someone can help me with this as it's driving me mad!

Did things ever work? If so, what changes were made to the system after
which the problems started?

What antivirus application is running on each computer? Some a/v apps
(notably Norton) include an "Internet Worm Protection" feature that
actually is a firewall and needs to be configured.

Do you have nVidia NICs on your motherboard? Some nVidia chips have a
built-in firewall: http://www.nvidia.com/object/security.html

Thanks for getting back to me.

The PC has a Nvidia chip on it (on-board graphics) and I am in the process

DON'T. Lem meant a Network Interface Controller NOT a Graphics Controller.

Is there any way to know if any more things are blocking this?

Hi,

I have 2 Computers - Laptop (A) and PC (B).

"A" is running XP Pro (SP3) with a belkin wireless adaptor (connected to
router).
"B" is running XP Home (SP3) with a cable connection to a belkin wireless
router.

Right........

PC "B" can ping the router and Laptop "A".
Laptop "A" can ping the router but not PC "B".

Both systems have very little on them and I have tried disabling the
standard windows firewall on both (no other firewalls installed on either
yet).

The file-sharing works fine on PC "B". I can transfer files to and from the
laptop "A" and all is fine (all shared folders from "A"+"B" are visable on PC
"B")

On Laptop "A" I am unable to see any shared folders from PC "B".
When I click on "view network computers" in "my network places" on Laptop
"A" the PC "B" has an icon there but shows an error when I try to connect to
it:

"\\Sarah1 is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this
network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you
have access permissions.

The network path was not found"


Laptop "A" is called "BOB" and has a static IP address of 192.168.1.8
PC "B" is called "Sarah1" and has a static IP address of 192.168.1.7

Ping shots and ipconfig/all from laptop "A".

*Don't* *remove* the chip.

If you have an Nvidia nForce chip on you motherboard it may have
nVidia's ActiveArmor firewall. This firmware-implemented firewall used
to be user-configurable. You may now be limited to disabling it. See
this 2-year-old thread: http://forums.nvidia.com/index.php?showtopic=47170

Also see
http://www.google.com/#hl=en&source...g-m3&oq=configure+nvidia+&fp=5b7cf21b103219ea

Or ask nVidia support (especially if you don't know whether or not your
particular chip has this feature): http://www.nvidia.com/page/support.html

Hi,

Thanks again for the help.

It wasn't the nvidia chip in the end (could not find the firewall/network
thing anyway).

It turned out to be a bit of software left over from an old install of mcafe.

Got rid of this and worked fine.

Thanks for the help though!

Chris.
