Is there any sort of internet security suite running on the vista machine? i.e. Norton, McAfee, etc. If so, you will have to go into the settings of the application to let it know that you are conncected to a "Trusted" network. Otherwise, you may need to effect the same thing from within the Network and Sharing Center on the Vista machine that is being uncooperative. This after you have insured that all 3 machines have different hostnames and ip addresses.
