have 2 XP PC's.
They are connected via a switch.
The PC's can ping each other.
I have ICS setup & the client PC can connect to the Internet OK
I can't however map drives or use remote desktop.
They have matching usernames & passwords.
They aslo have F&P sharing setup
I have also disabled the firewalls to see if that helps
It doesn't.
Can anyone suggest anything else?
Thanks

This may help. I found this in Windows Help by typing "home network wizard"

To add a Windows XP computer to your network
You must be logged on to this computer as an administrator to complete this
procedure.

Set up your new computer and physically connect it to your home or small
office network.
Start the Network Setup Wizard.
If your network uses Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) and the ICS host
computer is running Windows XP Home Edition or Windows XP Professional, run
the Network Setup Wizard on that computer first.

Follow the instructions on your screen.
Notes

To start the Network Setup Wizard, click Start, click Control Panel, and
then double-click Network Setup Wizard.
The Network Setup Wizard is only supported on computers running Windows 98,
Windows 98 Second Edition, Windows Millennium Edition, or Windows XP.
