I have done as you instructed
. The WinXP VPC I set up can see the internet but for some reason it does not see the host Windows 7 machine. When I ping the host from the VPC I get no response. I can ping the VPC from the host machine. I intend to run the ArcInfo license of ArcGIS Desktop on the VPC. That license requires communication with a license server. The license server is running on my host machine. If I can't ping the host then I won't be able to use the license server.
I have done this on another machine with WinXP as both the host machine and the VPC and the VPC can see the host via ping.
I've turned off all the firewalls but no joy.
Any help would be appreciated.
