Two threads with a similar problem (XP is similar to Vista in this regard):
http://www.smartcomputing.com/techsupport/...p;ErrorID=21695
http://groups.google.com/group/microsoft.p...1e8a5a18d18f1a1

We'll need some info about your connection to see what's going on. Run these commands (making sure that both computers are on and connected):

Go to Start, then type in "cmd.exe" (without the quotes)
At the top of that box will appear a file named cmd.exe. Right click on it and select "Run as Administrator"
Type this into the Cmd box that opens: ipconfig /all >c:\ipconfig.txt
and press Enter.

Then open Windows Explorer and locate the file ipconfig.txt in the root of the C: drive. Open it with Notepad, select all of the text and then select Copy. Paste this text into your next post and we'll see what's going on.

as said in the 1st link u gave me, i went to services.msc ant made all the services mentioned in the link Start Automaticly at startup most of them weher set to manual start.
when i was tryin to Start the Remote Access Auto Connection Manager it gave me the following error:
"Windows could not start the Remote Access Auto Connection Manager service on Local Computer
Error 1722:The RPC server is unavailable"

note:the RPC service is running.

does this error have anything to do with ICR?

What OS is installed on the laptop? I'm not familiar with "ICR", could you explain that please? I'm presuming that this is a dialup connection and not a DSL connection - am I correct?

Here's a couple of links about the RPC server issue:
http://www.howtonetworking.com/Troubleshooting/rpcissue.htm
http://www.jsifaq.com/SF/Tips/Tip.aspx?id=1701
http://www.wilderssecurity.com/archive/ind...p/t-121376.html

As you can see, there's a gazillion reasons for this error to occur - so let's troubleshoot them one by one.

First step would be to ensure that File and Printer Sharing is enabled on each system.

Also, try disabling IPv6 and disabling the DHCP Broadcast flag using this article: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx/kb/928233

I'm guessing that there's a problem with communications between the 2 NIC's - but can't quite figure out what it is (I'm not very familiar with ICS).

Perhaps the simplest fix would be to purchase a router to connect the 2 PC's to and let it do the worrying about controlling the signals. While dialup routers are somewhat hard to find, DSL routers are very common and will connect directly to the DSL modem.

Well, I'm not familiar with ICS either! :huh: I would expect that a router (or even a hub or switch) would be a more easily worked solution for you.
