    Hello,

    I have a Windows XP client configured with an Incoming Connection.
    This means a remote XP laptop can dial into this machine.
    The XP Client (with the Incoming connect) is in a workgroup – as are all machines)
    I have a Windows 2003 server with some shares.
    If I log on locally to the XP Incoming Connect machine I can connect to the shares on the 2003 Server.
    However if I dial into the Incoming Connection XP machine, using a laptop with the same workgroup name and an account that is configured on all boxes with the same name and password, I can see the 2003 server in the list when trying to map a drive, but cannot see any of the shares.
    I can see the XP Incoming connection servers shares!
    Is this a browser related problem?
    Ive enabled the access my LAN option on the XP Direct Connect machine.
    Any advice/or help would be gratefully received.
    Many thanks
    Regards
    Johnny:grin:
