SarahMy first guess is that the Windows XP PC is running a firewall that is preventing the PC from receiving and processing ping. The firewall allows outboud ping request and inbound ping response. But it does not allow inbound ping response.HTHRick

thanks Rick for your response. I will see if the firewall is blocking ping packets. Have a nice day!
