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.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

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
