    Having real problems getting my Dell Vista machine to see the old XP desktop sat next to it. The XP machine does have the LLTD download correctly installed and running, but if I use the Network Map in Vista, I just get "Windows cannot discover any device".
    Also, every time I reboot, the network resets itself to Public instead of Private - Why??

    Running the Softperfect Netscan on the XP machine always finds the Dell and can open its shared drives. Running it from the Dell, it cannot see the XP machine at all.

    Any ideas?
