Cannot ping IPs on local machines - Windows Networking

Windows XP peer-to-peer network, can see and share resources on other machines but cannot ping them using their static IP addresses. Each machine can ping itself, firewall and external addresses - just not the local ones. All machines act as terminals for another processor which recognises them by IP address. The problem is still there even if the processor is switched off. Finally, network is running TCP-IP and NetBEUI (necessary for terminal function). Is there a setting I'm missing?...

    Default Cannot ping IPs on local machines

    Windows XP peer-to-peer network, can see and share
    resources on other machines but cannot ping them using
    their static IP addresses. Each machine can ping itself,
    firewall and external addresses - just not the local ones.

    All machines act as terminals for another processor which
    recognises them by IP address. The problem is still there
    even if the processor is switched off.

    Finally, network is running TCP-IP and NetBEUI (necessary
    for terminal function).

    Is there a setting I'm missing?

    Default Cannot ping IPs on local machines


    all peer-to-peer networking in NT4.0-win2000-winxp is
    handled thru the guest account. Make sure it is turned on
    in all XP machines - I recommend no password.
    Things should clear up rapidly after that.

    Hi Tom:

    Windows XP Peer-to-Peer network you are mentioning
    is it
    [url]http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/downloads/list/winxppeer[/url].
    asp?

    or just config a small network less than 10 machines access to internet?
    [url]http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb%3Ben-us%3B242592[/url]

    Thanks.
