Hi,\n\njust taken delivery of shiny new Vista Home Premium system.\n\nI have a simple home network, wireless router and a Win98 (yes, 98)\nmachine, this new Vista box. The Win98 machine is wired to the router,\nthe Vista machine is wireless.\n\nBetween these two machines, networking fine, internet access fine etc.\nBoth machines members of same Workgroup, IP addresses assigned by\nrouter using DHCP etc.\n\nI also have a work laptop, XP Pro, it is configured to work on home\nwireless LAN, DHCP, but it is not a member of the workgroup since it\nis a domain machine from work. But when in the home it can connect to\ninternet etc.\n\nMy problem is that I cannot setup even the most basic communication\nbetween the Vista machine and the XP laptop. Or in fact either of the\nworkground machines adn the XP laptop, not that I cared before. (What\nhas the Win98 machine ever done for me?)\n\nVista machine IP is 192.168.10.3\nXP is 192.168.10.2\nWin98 is 192.168.10.4\n\nThe Vista machine can ping and share files with the Win98 machine.\nThe XP machine can ping either of the Win98 or Vista machines\n\nBut neither of the Win98 or Vista machines can ping the XP machine,\neven though as far as I can tell their ipconfig setups are identical.\nI cannot connect to and FTP server running on the XP machine from\neither\n\nFirewall is disabled on Vista for test purposes, didn't make any\ndifference though.\n\nAny ideas?
