  2. Hi
    Make sure that the Software Firewall on each computer allows free local
    traffic. If you use 3rd party Firewall On, Vista/XP Native Firewall should
    be Off, and the active Firewall has to adjusted to your Network IP numbers
    on what is some time called the Trusted Zone (consult your 3rd Party
    Firewall instructions.
    General example,
    Vista File and Printer Sharing-
    Windows XP File Sharing -;en-us;304040
    Printer Sharing
    XP -
    Windows Native Firewall setting for Sharing
    XP -
    Windows XP patch for Sharing with Vista (Not need for XP-SP3) -
    Sharing between Windows XP and Mac -
    When done hard reboot all network computers and the Router.
