Don't know if this has been submitted or not so sorry for multiplying topics if that is the case !
I have 2 machines:
1 Desktop loaded with 2000 pro connecting to a wireless router via a cable
1 Laptop loaded with XP home connected to the same router via wireless
the Desktop is running ZoneAlarm and laptop the XP firewall
Both machines can access the router as they get their IP from the DHCP and both can connect to the internet.
The problem that I hab=ve is that the XP machine cannot connect to the 2k machine unless the 2k machine has tried to connect first. Let me explain :
* if I want to ping the 2k machine with the XP machine, I have to ping the XP machine fiirst with the 2k machine.
* if I want to VNC on the 2K machine I have to have the client listener listening on the XP machine and the 2K machine initiating the connection.
I have tried disabling the firewalls and it does not change anything ...
Can anyone help please ???
