I've got a problem:
I cannot ping from my laptop to my desktop "Request Timed out"
However, I do can ping from my desktop to my laptop.

Using network places, I also can connect to my laptop (admin)
But when trying it from my laptop to my desktop, I cannot make a connection.

I would like to use the program Synergy, which can share the keyboards and mouse of one computer to control multiple.
When making the laptop the Server(shared mouse), it works like a charm. (ports are open)
But when making the computer the Server, nothing works and i keep getting "Request Timed out".

I disabled the firewalls on both machines,
the laptop is running windows 7, the desktop windows XP.

Who has an idea?

I assume the firewalls you disabled are the Windows firewall. Do you any security suites on either pc that may have a built-in firewall?
