Non-Domain Network not working

  daba 17:38 25 Jan 09

Hi, can anyone help.

I have the following set-up, all machines are dynamic IP addressing, current assignments :-

Wireless Router -
Nintendo Wii - - wireless
My PC - - hardwired to router
Sons PC - - wireless

Trying to set-up file-sharing, printing etc. on the two PCs with no success.

Both PCs can ping all devices, EXCEPT the other PC.

Both PCs running Windows 2K Pro, all fully up-to- date.

Both PCs set-up to be members of a WORKGROUP, not a domain.

Both PCs have Sygate Personal Firewall installed, and all windows services are set "allowed".

Any help getting this simple set-up working would be appreciated, I'm sure the answer is staring me in the face......

OK its all sorted now thanks, I hadn't set-up the firewall properly to allow file and printer sharing.
