I have a small issue that has reoccured. I didn't resolve it last time. Had no need to do remote control then.

On a D-Link DI-604 router, 2 computers.
Computer A can ping Computer B.
Computer B cannot ping Computer A.
No firewalls, including XPs (SP1a only) are on.
Computer A cannot connect to Computer B, either by IE to get shared, or by GenControl (remote control)
I have account on both machines, same name, both with administrative privileges.
IP addresses, subnet mask, and gateway are correct. The workgroup is correct also. Router is handing out all information.

The only reason I'm doing something about it now is that I need to share the printer (on Computer A) and obviously need to have communication with the machine. The machines are in the same room.

Any other ideas to check?

Both can access the internet? Do you have a normal switch you can put in place just to see if the computers can talk to each other then? This would tell you if the problem follows the router or the computers. You said that the firewalls are off so that should not be the problem service pack1a does allow you to check a box on the advanced tab of the connection properties to protect your computer make sure that is not checked, could have just missed it. other then that I would try another device just a simple switch or hub and see if the computers can talk then. if that fixes the issue then your router went wacky and you will need a new one.

Sounds like computer A may have alot of issues since it can ping B but b cannot ping it but it itself cannot make network connections to B.

Have you tried resetting all the TCP/IP and winsock information? Something like Winsock XP fix. http://www.snapfiles.com/get/winsockxpfix.html

Also you have made sure both are same workgroup right?

Memnoch was correct. I didn't reliased that the advanced properties had the ICF at all. I have unchecked that and now can ping again.

Now all i need to do is get my remote control program working. I'm assuming it's a user/permission issue, since the account on Computer A is a different username on Computer B.

Thanks again for your assistance.
