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".
