Networking Between ubuntu and windows xp

As we all know we can establish a Network between ubuntu and windows xp. I tried to connect my friends Dell inspiron loaded with ubuntu and another friends system loaded with windows xp i was unable to establish a connection. Actually i was trying to establish a connection for file sharing. But i failed for long time. But my friend succeeded.
All he done is just entering any random ip address, but giving the same and precise gateway for both the systems.for example
for system 1:
subnet mask
defaul gateway
leave the dns we don't need it.
for system 2
subnet mask
default gateway
that's it we got them connected and we had our file sharing.
This is the solution that worked for us hope it works for you too.
Good luck


  1. i don't have an idea.this is failure suggestion.

  2. how about the ubuntu client will be connected each other into windows xp?
