You will need to allow everything for your local network. I use Vista Ultimate 64 bit and OS X has much better interoperability with Vista than XP home edition. Vista refuses to connect to my XP home edition unless I type in the IP address.
It seems that I have the same problem and I was suspecting that I need to adjust "location" in nework setting but I was trying to find more information on line. Could you please elaborate.
I have Leopard, XP, and Vista machine. I had the same problem with XP (not seeing some machines) and it was the "Workgroup". But I did not see the workgroup set up in Leopard.
Another thing that you might be able to help with. In many places on line, I saw that I need to set up the "WINS" tap (under network preference) to connect correctly to windows machine but everytime I tried to set it up and add the ip addresses for the windows machines, apply, close and open again I don't find my changes are still there.
I appreciate any help. Thanks.
