I have a computer with Win2k and one with WinXP. The XP one can see the Win2k but not the other way around.

This can usually be fixed by going over a few basic things listed below.

Possible Solutions.
1.) Have you disabled the XP's built in firewall?
2.) Is something shared on the XP PC (files, folders, hard drive etc etc)?
3.) Is the User Account on the 2000 PC added as a User Account on the XP PC?
4.) Is the Guest Account enabled on the XP PC?
