Help me with local networking

  1. Oct 7, 2005 #1
    Do you know why computer A can ping computer B but computer B cant ping computer A ??? Firewalls on or off in this local cable sharing are not a problem. Just now that I cant do things like setting up [\\computerAName\ASharedFolder] from computer B's sharing widzard anymore. How can i fix this problem ? Thanks in advance

    That's honestly a very vague description for a very complicated system where a million things can go wrong. So you can access computer A (\\compA) from computer B, but not (\\compB) from computer A?

    No, they cant look at each others shared folders, err message says "it doesnt appear to be a valid folder,pls specify another one", and B can ping A but A cant ping B.

    What happens with both I don't understand/
