AFP client freezes when trying to connect via ethernet

My G4 and G5 (both running Tiger) are networked via ethernet. This connection has always worked absolutely fine, until ... it suddenly didn't. Now, the G5 doesn't 'see' the G4 in NETWORK at all (though I can still ping it). The G4 does 'see' the G5, but when I try and mount one of its drives on the G4, Finder will freeze. When I relaunch Finder, AFP client will freeze ( which I can then force qit in Activity Monitor). Happens the same way, every time.

Any suggestions about what might be going on would be greatly appreciated. I'm in the middle of a project, and having lost network connection complicates my backup routine no end...


QUOTE Thanks
