I'm trying to set up a simple 2 PC and switch (no internet) network but I'm not having much success.
I've followd the guide found on EZLAN.NET but still cannot share files and neither pc "sees" the other in "MY Network Places".
I've tried the ping command and got the following result:
PC A pings PC B and gets an answer
PC B pings PC A but returns all packets lost
I've set the ipaddress of each pc as follows:
PC A 192.168.0.1
PC B 192.168.0.2
both use a subnet mask 255.255.255.0
I did come across an article on the net that sugested that if you change the settings too many times the registry gets clogged with spurious settings and this in itself could stop a network from working.
Does anyone have any ideas, any help would be most welcome.
