Ethernet Vista Ultimate to XP
Hi everyone,

I have been trying to set up an Ethernet LAN with Vista Ultimate and XP Home with little success..

I have set up the standard IP configurations.. 192.168.0.1 for XP which is connected to the internet via wireless router.. Vista is setup for 192.168.0.2 subnets are both 255.255.255.0, gateway on Vista set for XP IP, etc....

The XP machine can 'see' the Vista machine but cannot access it, reporting network path not found.. Vista cannot ping the XP box nor can XP ping Vista times out normally.. Network discovery was tried on and off.. Private and public along with a host of other settings variations have been tried...

Vista reports it is connected to an unknown network and also at least once reported before shutting down that at least one user is connected etc...

XP shows the Vista box in the work group which is the same on both as is the user accounts...

XP is fully updated SP3 and Vista is out of the box with no updates...

I would like full connectivity, file sharing and internet access through the XP connection to work if possible..

Any help is appreciated..

Hi
Make sure that the Software Firewall on each computer allows free local
traffic. If you use 3rd party Firewall On, Vista/XP Native Firewall should
be Off, and the active Firewall has to adjusted to your Network IP numbers
on what is some time called the Trusted Zone (consult your 3rd Party
Firewall instructions.
