Hi all!
I am new here :) also new to ubuntu so if the following might sound stupid pls bear with me :P

I have setup a PC with two network cards and installed ubuntu 8.04, and also another PC with XP SP2 with also two network cards. The setup is more or less like this:

PRIVATE IP No.1 -------- UBUNTU PC -------- PRIVATE IP -- NETWORK
|
| < cross over cable
|
PRIVATE IP No.1 -------- XP SP2 PC -------- PRIVATE IP -- NETWORK

I can ping FROM the ubuntu to the XP but CANNOT from the xp to the ubuntu.....

can you pls help??? Thanks!!

then it could very well be that firestarter is blocking the ping..try disabling it temporarily or allowing the windows pc to acess!!add a rule!!
