Are you sure its not a router issue with port redirection of TCP Port 3391
to 3389? How about reversing the port redirection, ie. addressing PC A with
3391 and PC B with 3389 as a test. You also might try a different port, ie.
TCP Port 12345 for example.
If you can address another PC from the Vista client with TCP Port 3391 or
higher its not an issue with the Vista client.
FWIW, I have never seen that issue...
