    I have small workgroup network and i have 5 win xp clients and one win vista.
    from win vista i can not open one of my xp clients and when i click on the
    computer name i get the username and password dialog and after entering the
    correct username and pssword i get again the username and password dialog.
    but i can connect from other xp clients to that client and also i can open
    from vista other xp clients.
