Is windows firewall on?
Also try using different network adapters for each OS.
I´ve installed backtrack and winxp and i am trying to use some exploits i saw on videos but they can´t work.
I can ping from winxp to backtrack but backtrack cant ping to winxp : \
when i use nmap it says that ports are filtered,dont know what that mean
i ´ve done ifup eth0 xD
What sickness says is correct by default the Windows firewall blocks incoming icmp packets. That goes back to the old days of the "ping of death". If you want to make your life easier when practicing sploiting, visit hdmoore's metaspoit blog for tips on making xp more vulnerable. Also you should start a couple services in your xp install otherwise their won't be any ports opening up to sport. Such as opening telnet and setting a password to crack. When scanning a Windows box with nmap always use the -PN so it doesn't use ping packets first to check if the IP is a live host. Above all have fun.

On your WinXp box, configure a network. The windows will ask you for enable file/print share. Say yes.
Or just go to Control Painel>Firewall>And check the file/print share option.
Turned off firewall and works just fine.
Thank you guys !
