it looks like the client is "seeing" the Server but the connection times out and the server log shows no connection at all...any advice appreciated...no firewalls are running..but the connection is through a linksys router which i suspect is where the trouble lies

If you are using default Network settings in your WinXP installations there should be no problems, it should just work, "out of the box".

ARE you using WinXP both ends?

I really don't know why Windows should report

21511 Error on client pre-Connection Select() [Error=10060] Connection timed out

All it says in the Windows help for this is:

"A connection attempt failed because the connected party did not properly respond after a period of time, or the established connection failed because the connected host has failed to respond",

which is obviously not very helpful.

Well, you could try bypassing that just as a test (though to connect two computers directly together you'll need a crossover cable). Compare the assorted settings on both PCs too. Are they both WinXP? If not the default protocol settings may be different. Can you share files and so on both ways okay?

Great! Thanks for letting me know! Sounds like some sort of network driver corruption or mix-up.

Regards,

Pete
