Operating System Version:windows xp professional sp2 (both systems)


I am having a few problems with 2 computers that are Cabled together.
I the host computer have recently formatted and I haven't managed to get the 2 computers 100% right since.

I have followed the tutorials and i am too new to networking to understand - sorry!

Here's some info:

Both systems have different names

Both systems are running windows xp professional sp2


Host computer TCP/IP Properties:

Ip :
Subnet Mask:
Default Gateway: BLANK

Use the following DNS Server adresses:

Preferred: BLANK
Alternate: BLANK


Client Computer is using DHCP
(automatically detect setting (for all)

I tried to type in IP: and Subnet
and left the rest of the details the same as the hosts - All this does is cause errors on the client computer and the client computer can't connect to the internet or see the host comp in workgroup so i canged the settings back to 'automatically detect settings'


The internet runs fine on both this way.

We are both using Windows Firewall



* We can't see each others shared documents *

* Client computer can't access Host computer through workgroup but the host can access the Client computer *

Error message from client computer when trying to access host computer:


\\ic3man is not accessible.  You might not have permission to use this network resource.  Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions.

Access is Denied.


I'm sorry if this is a stupid question but i'm learning slowly.....

Any advice would be greatly appreciated Smiley
