Networking Connectivity

Ok...Here we go...

XP Pro connecting to XP Home. ip settings are 192.168.1.2 and 192.168.1.3 respectively with subnet masks of 255.255.255.0. Using a cross over cable from one nic to the other. The folder from the one computer is shared to everyone on the network. Both assigned to the workgroup "MSHOME".

Why can they not see each other???

Am I missing something?

Is XP's firewall 'protecing' you from each other?

Check out the stats on the network. If the cards are sending or recieving anything then the problem is not the cards or the cable and is most likely a protocol error.

Is file & printer sharing install on both of them?

You will probably also have to use client for microsoft networks as well to login to the machines from the other one.
