Vista VPN to XP Pro
There are a multitude of Vista networking issues out there, and I
haven't yet found a solution for this one...

I have a home network with 2 Vista machines and 2 XP Pro machines on
in a common workgroup. All is well here, the machines can see each
other on the network and access each other via NetBios name.

I have a VPN connection to my office as well, which I use either from
a Vista machine (ethernet), or one of the XP Pro machines (wireless).
If I VPN via the XP Pro machine, I am able to access remote computers
by their machine name (\\somecomputer), while on the Vista machine, I
must use the machine's IP address.

NetBios over TCP/IP is enabled for the VPN connection on the Vista
machine. Are there any other simple network settings that I'm
overlooking?

Re: Vista VPN to XP Pro
Enable NetBIOS is not good enough. We need to check the DNS or WINS settings. Posting the result of ipconfig /all may help.
