I have an NT 4 box in domain "Stores" called "NTBox" with fixed TCP address.

I have 2 PCs all in Domain "Vincent".

"Gillian" XP SP1 Can browse into NTBox by name or by IP address and get full access.

"Paul" XP SP2 Can 'see' "NTBox" in "Stores" but gets "You do not have appropriate access rights to this server. ..." when I try to get properties of it and "NTBOX" is not accessable ..." "The user name canot be found" when I try to open it.

I need full access of the NTBox from "Paul". What can I change to make this happen. I have admin rights to all units. I suspect my Firewall settings are getting in the way but I dont know enough about firewalls to know what to change. However, switching off my firewall does not fix the problem so this 'should' be something else.

Any ideas?
