Peer to Peer with W2K and XP 64

I have tried multiple configurations, Workgroup and TCP/IP and cannot get this to work.  I read the questions/answers on here but still I cannot get either workstation to recognize the other.  I am running Norton Firewall on the W2K system and the native firewall on the XP side and I've tried disabling both and still does not work.  Could this be 32B v 64B issue?

Thanks

nuh 32 and 64 can coexist just fine, lets look at the basics first.

disable any firewalls, uninstall norton as it hangs around

lets get the machines pinging first

assign them static addresses within the same range and see if they can talk

Actually the culprit was Norton (I wish I could get rid of this firewall), I disabled the firewall and then was able to establish peer-to-peer communication.  I then went into Norton Firewall under networks and configured the IP on the other system in my network and it worked fine with the firewall running.  Thanks for your help!
