I have windows 2003 server and client with windows xp. I able to ping server from client but unable to ping client computer from server. when I try to access client computer i get following error:

\\computer is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions.

The network path was not found.

Please help me.

Sounds more likely to be a Windows problem (config or something) so i have moved it to here.

First of all, can you confirm if you are running it in a Windows Domain environment or is it a workgroup setup ?

Also, do you have the Windows XP firewall enabled (if its service packed) ? If it is then ICMP doesn't work so thats probably why the Pings are not working (also unless configured correctly, it can also stop attaching to the computer over the network).

I would check the firewall and if its enabled turned it off for testing purposes.

So the Windows XP machine is in the Windows 2003 environment ? Can you take a look at event viewer and see if there are any errors within there ?

Can you try removing the machine from the Windows 2003 domain and then re-adding it (just in order to test something). It sounds like it may be the Machine Account has got out of sync. If removing and adding works then there is a knowledge base article on Microsoft's website that explains steps on resyncing them if it ever happens in the future.

If ya can get back to us.
