  1. I've set up home LAN in two PC's, both using winXP.
    but from 1 pc, another is not accessible, but reverse
    is not true.

    can anyone help me?

    Welcome to TechSpot

    You DO speak in contradicting riddles!

    Anyway, did you use a cross-over (not straight) network cable ?
    Are both PCs in the same "Workgroup"?
    Is File-sharing enabled on both PCs?
