Check :

1) You can ping the XP machine from Ubuntu. On ubuntu, open a terminal and :


2) Check the network routing on ubuntu - in the terminal, type :

route -n

What does it print? We need to know what gateway is set.

3) Also - "ifconfig -a" might help as well.

I assume no firewall is installed on either machine.

Ubuntu "sudo iptables -L -n" contains no rules.
