When connected with WDMC to my desktop (Vista Enterprise x86), everything seems to work OK, except I cannot ping it from my PDA. Viceversa (from desktop to PDA (IP:169.254.2.1)) works.
I'm using vxUtil.exe. Pinging the desktop IP (192.168.1.X) always returns time out, even when my Kaspersky Internet Security 2009 on the desktop is disabled. Windows Firewall is disabled. Pinging 169.254.2.2 works OK.
I configured Remote-NDIS-Host to specific IP address:
and empty data for servers.
I cannot figure out why I cannot ping the desktop.
Please, help me!

The address 169.254.2.1 is restricted via the firewall to only allow selected traffic required for synchronization. If you want to open this up, then go into the firewall in the control panel in Vista and you can create rules to do so.
