    My machine is the host computer for an ICS setup between two computers, both running XP Home (dial up connection online 24/7)

    Both machines can ping each other and the client computer can access the internet, share files/printer etc OK, and it can "see" my machine under the workgroup - but for some reason my machine cannot see the client machine.

    I posted here a while back with the very same question when I first set up my home network with a different client machine. Someone suggested at the time that I do a search for the client machine, and it worked that time, but this time search doesn't find it. Has anyone any idea why it's not showing up and/or how I can get it to?
