Internet Sharing

  Blanc Glacier 00:42 22 Jan 2005

Hi there i was wondering if anyone could help me. I have 2 computers, both using Windows XP, one with Home and the other with Pro. I have just installed broadband onto the XP Pro computer and setup internet connection sharing so that the XP Home can use the net aswell. However, everytime i try opening IE on the Home machine it comes up with "This page cannot be displayed". They are both connected via Cat5e Crossover (Peer-to-Peer) network.
If anybody could put some light on this then it would be greatfully recieved.

Many thanks in advance
