Can't access shared folder on server on the same workgroup as virtual

Hi,

From virtual xp guest I can't access a shared folder on server 2003 machine.

I can access it from windows 7 host.

The Host, virtual xp, and server are all on the same workgroup.

Please help!

When you try to get to the File Via XP are you browsing or Trying Direct connection ie: \\192.168.0.2

I have always found XP to be a Pain in the arse when it came too networking folders.

Just tries to go Via Entire Network and came up with nothing, but as Soon as i done \\192.168.0.4 I was in faster than you can say BOO!

I can reach it via a direct connection \\192.168.1.130 however it does not direct connect when I use the DNS server name ie \\servername

when I use \\192.168.1.130 it make me provide a user name and password :/

it should recognize DNS and automatically authenticate
