Windows 7: Windows 7 not connecting to W2003SR2 Shares but allowing login

No kind of addon, I belive for Cisco it is a default setting. When I Googled it while trying to troubleshoot it, there was much debate over whether it should be on or off by default. I know in my case, after waiting for three days for Cisco support to help me reolve the issue I was experiencing [which they never did] I stumbled across ARP Proxy thing and it cleared my plague up like penicillin. Once I made this one change, everything cleared up and closed the Cisco TAC case.

Cisco should have had an answer for this straight away, they should know the type of problems their own default settings can cause.

Man that is crazy, at the very least it should be disabled by default for obvious reasons. Nice work on figuring this one out, I never even knew about that setting or what it did.

Thanks for reporting back in as these threads come up with Google searches all the time and it may end up helping someone else.

I really hate it when I find a post that gets resolved and it never says what they did to resolve it. Your help was awesome but I think I was barking up the wrong tree from the beginning. This all started because one user could not print. Some of the other users did not even notice as they did not use that printer. Then a few W7's were not connecting to the domain (well they didnt even know it, things just seemed slow for them as they were trying to access their home folders - the majority of what they do is remote through RDP sp they didnt even care and just kept working without telling me about the slowness) so things were very slow to show themselves. I can tell you my main lesson is to stick with the basics, I should have been looking at arp tables that first day and it never occured to me to do so.
