Home Networking

I have 2 com at home running 2000 pro. Both has NICs and I connected them by Crossover cable. I can ping each other, but can not see each other on Network Neighbor. Is that the firewall issue? or I just setup not correct? Any idea would help, thank you.

do you have anything shared on the computers?  don't know if it is the case or not, but i have had problems seeing other computers in network neighborhood if there are no shares (wasn't in win2k though)

This could be a firewall issue.
I have zonealarm installed, which restricted the computers from seeing each other although they could ping each other.
If this is the case with you then you need to set up a trusted zone which includes the ip range of all computers on the network
