  1. hello guys,

    got problem on my network and i think its very weird,

    i have this two XP computers networked together, and i can access each

    computer's shared files by typing \\ComputerName on Run but i cannot ping

    each other, i've already try input an IP manually for both computers, but

    still not working. Is there any reason for this? please help me fix this so that

    my IIS will work.

    Thanks in advance!! Happy new year!
