Network problem ICS is working but cant see each other

Hi

The ICS we are running between 2 comps with WIn XP, has suddenly started to behave funny.

We cant see each other on network places, but we can still both go on the net.

I have tried the wizard several times but it still is the same.

Any suggestions?
Cheers

Are you both in the same workgroup? Find this by doing the following:

[list=1]
  • Click the "Start" button
  • Goto the Control Panel
  • Double click "Network Connections"
  • Click "Advanced" in the menu bar (top of the page) and then choose "Network Identification"
  • Insure that they both have the same workgroup name. I believe the default is MSHome.[/listShocked]

    Are you running a software firewall like Zonealarm. If so, is it the free version or the pro version. The free version will not work with ICS.

    I am sure a, maybe old, free version of Zone Alarm worked with ICS (before I up'd to router). Has the newer "free" version stopped this ?

    It stopped in V3 and later I think, to encourage you to buy the pro version.

    You now need the pro version for it to work properly, or set firewall -> Internet Zone Security to Medium in the free version but then you don't have a proper firewall :roll:
