Do you have network sharing and discovery option turned on in?

Also I have seen where it is an older router and the router will not route the packets from vista.

Let me know

vista connecting to Xp computers and Win 2000 server

by schanda In reply to Vista Firewall

yes the vista firewall is on. and let me inform you that, initially it was working ok and suddenly it started to fail. i do'nt know wether the user did something to the configurations or not, am not sure.or is it because the domain controller has windows 2000 server operating system.
