Hello Experts,

I asked this question yesterday and I received great help. However, I am still having issues:

Two computers: one linux, the other WinXP,

Linux /etc/hosts
192.168.0.81   diana (linux hostname) (FW disabled; SELinux disabled)
192.168.0.69   maria

WinXP hosts
192.168.0.69   maria (winxp hostname)(FW ICMP: allow incoming echo request checked)
192.168.0.81   diana

I can ping maria (winxp) from diana (linux); but still can't ping diana from maria (winxp)....

very odd... everything checks... not sure what's going on..

I appreciate your help...

Regards,

Any thoughts?

thx so much...
