I was having the same problem.

I bypassed this problem by clicking on start/search/computers or people and type in the target computers IP address.

I then made a shorcut icon when it finds the computer and simply click on this icon to access the target computer.

Is the firewall stopping you?

  tmle8 17:18 31 Jan 2004

nah i disabled the firewall at the time,
unless there is another firewall from windows but i dont think i enabled that one either

I think xp has a firewall better check it's not enabled.
