  1. I have 4 windows xp pro computers and 1 Vista sp1 computer the problem is I can see all the XP machines ping them by name and IP, but when I go to create a mapping from the Vista machine to the 4 XP machines they will not map. Any ideas would be great.

    mapping will find ONLY Vista systems UNTIL you add another discovery service to XP

    Hi jobeard,

    The Vista machines see's all the XP machines and the folders when I browse to them. I just can not access them. When I create a new folder and share it out everything is good. I have looked at file and permissons and everything else. I am out of ideas. I installed that LLTD on the XP machines and when the option is checked in the network properties then I can not see any of the XP machines uncheck and I can see the XP machines. Any ideas? Thank you in advance.
