I recently bought a new computer. I took my old one filled it up with some hard drives and am I hoping to have it be a file server and maybe some other uses.

I installed Ubuntu Hardy Server on the machine and I cannot ping, SSH or see the samba shares from my Ubuntu Hardy Desktop. I can access Apache and the torrentflux webpage I configured. However when I boot into Windows on my desktop I can access all the machine from through all protocols.

ufw is not running on either machine and it is worth mention I have one of those horrible actiontec routers model no. mi424wr.

Any help with this would be greatly appreciated!
