i am having two machines both with xp sp2 and on same workgroup. I have connected them to LAN through a two port splitter. Every thing works fine but i cannot access the machines from each other. Even when i ping it doesnot detect my other machine. While from other computers on the network both are accessible. I have enabled file sharing. An early reply is appreciated. Thanks.

can you check firewall setting on both computer?
then also check the network setting and also check whether you are using any antivirus software with firewall like, macfee or symantec then disable the firewall. also check the ip address of both computer as well as the subnet mask and give the default gateway too.
let me know whether its working or not after this.

What kind of network is this on? From the IP addresses and subnet masks, it's obvious that you're not on a SOHO router. Since this is some sort of corporate network, I would suggest you talk to the IT folks and see if they can configure the routing to allow them to connect.
