    my vista laptop can see my two xp home desktops and can connect to one, but
    not to the other. when i clicked the diagnose button i am told that the ping
    is not responded to and to report this to my network administrator (lol - i
    think that's me). any ideas what to do to correct this?

  2. If you can see it but not access, it could be the permission issue. Make
    sure you have assigned permission in the Security tab. Or this search
    results may help.

    i may be misunderstanding your response, but are you saying i should change
    permissions on the vista machine in order to connect to the xp machine? the
    xp machine is running xp home, so it is my understanding from reading this
    forum and the link you provided that there is no security tab there.
