      I think we need quite a bit more detail. What local network address are you connected to for a start.

      Is the IP address a 127.x.x.x format? If it is this is a loop back on a Class A network.

      Are you sure that it isn't your firewall that is blocking it? With many, you have to tell it that the new network is safe to use. What firewall / security package are you using?
