hello uetian1707,
thanks for your help. i just checked xp and i noticed that file and printer sharing was not enabled (i thought i had it enabled a few weeks ago).  in any event, after i enabled it, i was able to ping both ways. thanks again.

Hi,

Could you please paste the result of below command on both machines;

C:\>ipconfig /all

Also check if Windows Personal Firewall or any other firewall is 'ON' on both machines.
