you have to open some ports to do file sharing.

EDITED:

sorry, doesn't make sense, you should still be able to ping. I can't say then, and can't delete my post...

Could be a number of reasons. Are both the debian and xp machine on the same network? (i.e. Is this a private network or what?)

If you're using a router/NAT device, is there a setting to allow communication between the clients?

Is the XP machine's firewall blocking ICMP echo ping requests?
