My understanding is that the transponder is not involved in actually
connecting to/sharing with other machines; its only function is to put
things on the network map.
From what I can tell, none of the other machines have the transponder
installed and they are all visible to the Vista Machine. In fact, the
problem machine was also visible at one point but it has not been for about
2 weeks.. I don't understand what I have to do to get the Vista machine to
just display the shared resources in the workgroup.
