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
