Windows 7: Network computers won't see each other

Network computers won't see each other

I've got 3 computers on my network
Windows Server 2003
Windows 2000
and now, Windows 7

I can map drives on Windows 7 to Windows 2000
I can map drives on Windows Server 2003 to Windows 2000
However, no matter what I do, I can not see my 2003 Server from my Windows 7 computer and also the other way around.

I could when I got this all set up, for a little while - - something changed, I guess, but I don't have the slightest idea where to start looking.

Help!?!?

Did you update windows server 2003 to the latest service pack? Maybe windows 7 will only recognize a specific service pack version of 2003

Actually I had the latest sp installed, but I re-installed it - - now, at least I can use unc paths to find the other machines from one to the other, but they still don't show up when I choose 'Entire Network'

I believe this has to do with the NTLM authentication level which needs to be the set the same on all machines connected to Windows server 03.

This will help you set that up on all machines connected to your server.

Using level 1-3 for the NTLM authentication is supposed to work best for mixed Op system networks.
