Networking Issue over a PC and Notebook

Specs: Windows XP
hey guys,

I have this funny situation where.. i have a PC and i have a notebook.

1. When i do a ping from the PC to the notebook, the ping is ok, no issue.
2. When i do a ping from notebook to PC, the ping fails saying request time out.

So this seems kind of weird so i did a packet trace using wireshark

results from wireshark, case 2 above.

a. notebook sends ping request to PC
b. PC receives the ping request
c. PC doesn't send a ping reply.
d. Note book ping times out


I am not sure why doesn't the PC sends a ping reply eventhough it has received a request. Any idea ppl?

Thanks

firewall configured not to return ping would be the usual reason.
