XP64 -> XP Pro Network issue

Hi all,

I have 2 XP computers that I want to network together, one running XP SP2
(called white with IP of 192.168.0.1) and the other XP64 (called blackwith
IP of 192.168.0.2)

File & print sharing is enabled on both machines

On machine White, I can ping Black using both the IP address and the name
Using the command "net view black" the shares available are not shown and
responds with "System error 53 has occurred" ; "The network path was not
found"
View Workgroup computers shows White and Black, but the Properties of Black
are not available when selected

On machine Black, I can ping White using both the IP address and the name
Using the command "net view white" the shares available are shown
View Workgroup computers shows Black only

XP firewall has been disabled on both machines for testing purposes
Machine White also has the Norton Firewall install, but this has also been
disabled for test purposes
Machine White is also used for DSL Internet (but with the Firewall enabled
at that time)

Enable NetBios over TCP/IP has been checked
LMHosts has been set up

Browser services are running
TCP/IP NetBIOS Helper service is running

Workgroup is set to HOME on both machines

Surely this should be a simple thing to do!
Can anyone help me out, I am going mad here!

TIA,

John.

run the network setup wizard again on both machines then restart.

Have you tried to see if both can see each other first without the DSL
connected first and all firewalls off. I once did what you did and always
found the firewall i tried to set to control the modem side had affected
communications with the lan side of things as well and sometimes both PCs
would not see each other.

I first set rules and also had to lower my firewall a notch for the default
setting then decided to get a realy cheap router which was wireless and
cheaper that most that was being sold and then all my problems were solved.
but i got a hunch the firewall your using on the DSL connection is the
problem.

Well,

Used the Network Wizard on both machines to reset the network - no
difference

Internet Sharing was enabled in the Network setup wizard from the XP
computer (this one has DSL)

All of the firewalls are off for this test purpose, but re-enabled for DSL
use (DSL is USB BTW)

Still the same results:

Ping = OK both with IP and Name
net view white = OK on machine Black
net view black = System error 53 has occurred; The network path was not
found; on machine white

On Black, only itself is visible in the workgroup
On White, both Black and White are visible in the workgroup, but Black is
NOT accessable or network path not found

Any more ideas would be appreciated.

TIA

John.

Give this a try and then see what happens not sure just a hunch but no
garantees, permentally disable norton firewall or uninstall it, (let see if
the manual way might help)

Set up the IP manually on both machines
Make sure white has no DNS or default gateway set on the network card with
black.

Put Whites IP 192.168.0.1 in the DNS and Default gateway on blacks network
card

On the dsl connection set it to share the connection with the network card,
that black is connected to

In the windows firewall in control panel (for white) under advance tab take
the tick out of the network card that is connected to black but leave it
ticked for the DSL firewall and then test it

John, are you, or are you not using a network router, or are you connecting
from computer to computer direct, via cat 5 network cable

If your connecting direct....make sure that that cable is a cross-over style
cat5 cable , and not a Std network cable

Did this setup work for you previously?

Can you do a "Start, Search" for each computer from the other machine? If
you're connecting the two directly (no router), without DNS, WINS, etc.,
that's sometimes what you're stuck with (and then map each to drive letters
and select logon automatically with restarts).

Can each machine ping itself (Computer_Name), localhost, and 127.0.0.1?

Tried different (new, known good) CAT-5 cables?

Have you setup shared resources on each system?

Just brainstorming without the benefit of sleep... ;~)

Don't worry, was using a x-over cable, computer-computer direct.

Randy,

In turn:

Did not happen previously as Black is a new machine only just purchased.

On Black, search for machine White comes up with the machine (YES!) and then
can map a drive
So if the above works, why does it not show up in the Workgroup?

On White, Black is not found when doing a search.......

Each computer can ping itself, localhost and 127.0.0.1
result the same with all cables
Shared resources are set up on each computer

John.
