Hi
I have two pc's one running w2k server and the other xp pro.

Today I did a net send to XP and it did not go. It has in the past.
There is no firewall on it. I pinged XP and it said not reachable.

I am seeing xp in my network places and can copy over files to w2k from there. xp can ping and net send to w2k. If I net send and/or ping the ip of xp (which is a private ip address, my public is on the router) it will ping, tracert and it says net send was successful, but the message does not pop up?

any ideas?
