    Check to see if those XP machines have their builtin firewall running. That firewall has caused me headaches more than I care for.

    Is that information under the Computer section or User section of GPRESULT?

    Under the Computer section - does the computer think it belongs to any security groups?  It should belong to a handful at minimum.

    under the computer section.  Yes it belongs to one security group I added it after posting my last omment.  All the other computers do as well

    Can you post the computer section of GPRESULT?

    The computer should belong to a number of groups (like below):

    The computer is a part of the following security groups:
           Debugger Users
           NT AUTHORITY\Authenticated Users
           Domain Computers
