Hi Bob,

Thanks for your response. It turns out that my problem was caused by Norton
Internet Security on the Vista PC. I added the IP address of the Win2k
Server PC to the NIS trusted sites. After doing this, I have no problem
accessessing shares between these two PC's.

Thanks again,
Paul

Many sharing issues are cuased by third part firewall. Check these links.

Vista can see XP but access because of firewall

Configure the ports of Firewall or security software to allow sharing

found the problem, which was my Norton firewall. When I turned it
off, I could ping both computers and they can now map to each other.
Thanks for the help! Wanna buy a used Norton 360, cheap?

can you ping the XP by IP? If yes, what do you receive if using net view \\xpipaddress?

Thanks for the clue. When you said permissions I checked the Norton
AntiVirus software that came with the machine and discovered that the
firewall was on. This is ok but it was essentially blocking everything. I
turned it off and the file shares work. Now I just need to go back and set
up the firewall correctly!
