How to get windows and linux to see each other using a broadband router?
First, sorry if this question is in a FAQ somewhere, but I've done a bit of searching, and found nothing so far.
My setup is as follows: two machines, a desktop running Win 2000, and a laptop running SUSE 9.3, both connected to a D-Link broadband router, which is itself connected to the internet. Both machines can access the internet fine, but I can't get them to see each other (for file sharing). I'm running firewalls on both machines (iptables on linux, Sygate Personal Firewall on Windows), as well as on the router. Both machines use DHCP.
I don't really want to disable the firewalls - but at the moment I can't even ping my windows machine from linux. But I can ping my linux machine from windows.
Where do I go from here?
