Cisco router 803 ping issue

Hi there

I have an old Cisco 803 router and I'd like to backup the IOS to a TFTP server as practise.

I am accessing the router via Hyperterminal console on a PC. A laptop, which I am going to use as the TFTP server, is connected to the e0 interface of the router.

The laptop has been assigned as static IP address of 192.168.1.65/24.  The e0 interface on the router has been assigned an IP address of 192.168.1.66/24, and they are connected via x-over cable.

Strangely, I can ping 192.168.1.66 from the laptop, but cannot ping 192.168.1.65 from the router.

Config posted below>>>

Router1#sh run
no service password-encryption

hostname Router1

ip subnet-zero

interface Ethernet0
 ip address 192.168.1.66 255.255.255.0
 no ip directed-broadcast

interface BRI0

Is there anything glaringly obvious that I'm doing wrong?

Most likely, if you're running XP, the firewall feature is blocking ICMP echo requests. You can go into network properties and permit it if you want.

Cheers - it was the Windows firewall blocking ICMP.
