I can ping my client computer from my host but I can't ping my host computer from my client.
Hi, i have WinXP SP2.
I have 2 computers connected in a network. The first is connected to a Speedtouch Modem via USB and then that computer (which is obviously the Host) is connected via ethernet to my other computer.
It took ages of messing around with settings to finally get the network to work with file and printer sharing and ICS on the computers.
However, I cannot connect to the internet from the client when the host is not connected to the interent. In other words the client PC can only access webpages when the host has dialed a connection (whether it is logged in or out). I cannot connect directly from the client PC - it just says 'page cannot be displayed'. I have to first dial on the host.
How can I change the settings (without ruining what i already have) to make it so that i can acces the internet on the client computer without having to go downstairs and dial it manually)
Also, a point to note is that I cannot seem to PING each of the computers via their names (FAMILY (host)and KRIS (client)).
Thanks for any help!
