I have got to link 2 laptops together. I have made the crossover cables and assigned IP addresses. I have turned off all firewalls and all works well. Tomorrow 1 of the laptops will be changed to a tosh, the problem is that I cannot get it to link. The network connection links at 100mbps and the firewall is turned off, even XP's own, but I cannot see the other laptop. It will not ping but as far as I can see all is off. What can I do ?

I have looked at the ipconfig and the node is set to unknown, and also if I put the tosh on a normal network where the ip address is created for it there is no difference. All laptops are part of the MSHOME . I tried to install a second network card via a PCMCI card and exactly the same fault has arisen.
