    I am trying to establish a small network by using the network wizard. My
    problem is that the icon at the menu bar shows the above status message. I
    can ping from the main computer (the one connected to internet) to the other
    computer and works fine. When I try to do the same the other way from the
    other computer to the main one it shows a communications time out. Also from
    the main computer I can access the shared folders in the remote computer but
    not the other way around. I substituted the remote computer by a laptop but
    it shows the same behavior.
    Please let me know what do you think.
