Title: Wireshark-users] need to find what blocks icmp

Rich: I just turned on ICMP allow incoming echo request on desktop & laptop. Ping from laptop to desktop still times out.

Chuck: Laptop is XP Home. Desktop: XP Pro. I double checked, and both machines have "Enable TCP/IP Filtering" box unchecked.

Tan: This is actually my home comps. So, I can't blame this problem on user but myself :(   I checked installed programs and it seems like I don't have any other firewall/anivirus installed beside mentioned in the original post. Though, I had zone alarm installed on both comps before current comodo install about a year ago. I don't see zone alarm process under task manager (should it start with z* ?), and it is not under programs..

Thanks a lot guys for helping me on this! I need both computers to 'see' each other in order to transfer few gig of programs, otherwise I would not worry about this ping a lot. Unfortunately, I need to understand why I can't ping desktop from laptop. I hope it will help them to see each other shared drives.
