Mapping NAS Box in Vista

By allan.kendall ·
Ello, we have a couple of old NAS boxes onsite that have an IP address of, I want to map them in Vista but for some reason it does not seem to be able to see them. We have Windows XP machines on site however they have no problem in seeing them.

I have login scripts on all user accounts so that the drive can be mapped automatically but obiviously because Vista cannot see the box from its IP the mapping doe snot work.

However, the front end of the NAS Box does work, if I open a web browser and goto Http://
It shows you the directory listing for the data folder.

This is no use though. Why can Vista simply not see the NAS box correctly and what can I do about it?
