I have a Vista laptop on a network that will not connect to any of the XP
machines on the network.
I am able to access the Vista machine by typing in \\Machine_name where
Machine_Name is the name of the Vista machine.
However I cannot do this the other way.
My main concern is printing from the vista machine to the printer that is
connected to to the XP machine.
