Default Need help with MediSoft

We have two desktops in our front office PC1 is the server, and PC2 is the client. I'm using a cross over cable in the back of each tower for medisoft. I'm also using Advantage Database Server on PC1. When I try to connect to the server (_Advantage_Database_Server_) using pc2 it generates an *error code 6420*

error 6420 means this --
A 6420 error indicates that the Advantage client's process for finding the Advantage Database Server has failed. To communicate with 32-bit applications via IP, the Advantage Database Server creates two sockets and listens for specific multicast and mail (NetBIOS mailslot) packets. For IPX networks, the Advantage Database Server uses SAPs for discovery. Generally, a 6420 error is caused by a network device blocking these discovery packets or by a server not responding to the packet requests.
I did a quick google search and found this;




but IM having no luck. And technical support is 89.00 for 30 minutes.

Both systems are running Windows XP with (SP_2)

All help is greatly appreciated.

UPDATE issue resolved. It seems the windows firewall was blocking it from accessing the Advantage Database Server.
