1. I only have this problem accessing a share on the Vista machine
FROM the SAME Vista machine through Network. Of course I can access
through the folder itself without a problem.
2. I have not problem accessing network shares located on other
machines from the Vista machine.
3. I can map to the resource on the Vista machine (GUI& CMD Prompt)
FROM the SAME Vista machine. The net use is a success, but I get the
hourglass if I try to access - and onto the reset button.
4. Disabling autotuning and globall rss didn't help.
5. If I unshare and recreate the share I all it fine until I reboot
and I get the same unwanted behavior.
6. I downgraded NTFS and Share perms to everyone - that has no
Thanks for your help. I rapidly considering a re-install of XP. I
