cannot ping windows xp

Problem solved:
'rmmod ipchains' was the magic word.
(I still don't understand anything )
Thanks for the help.

I wanted to connect my linux box and window so that they can share files.
I was hoping it was a simple matter of plug and play.
(a newbie's dream)
So far I have assigned ip to both boxes.
And tried to ftp linux from windows and failed.

Here is weird part.
I could ping linux from window but not the other way.

Any help would be appreciated.

The result of ipconfig:

Please tell me exactly how you have these two machines hooked together. Are you looking to share an internet connection? Wich machine is gonna connect to the internet? Are you using a router (for sharing internet access), or is it just a hub? I need some more info...

Disconnect from the internet. Turn off firewall on both systems. Then ping.

Use SAMBA on LINUX, then you dont have to setup FTP on both systems.
