Small Network problem

By PSLog

  1. On my subnet I have computer A, computer B and a gateway.

    Both A and B can ping the gateway - and beyond.

    A can ping B (by ID address and Name)

    but B can't ping A at all.

    Where should I look?

    Look for a firewall on machine A? It may be blocking ICMP echo requests

    Yeah. That's exactly what the problem is. I enabled it last week at Microsoft's suggestion - didn't realise that my LAN was what they describe as VPN.

    NOW, I can't follow their instructions to undo it.

    Win2K Pro

    Where do I find the check box to disable the the Windows Internet connection Firewall?

    I've looked in LAN Properties and can't see the Advanced Tab they refer to.

    Sorry. Wind that back. I was on the wrong computer!
    I've now disabled it on my XP machine and all is sweet.
