Can't browse to my XP computer

Hi All,

Embarassingly, I can't figure out why users cannot browse to my computer.  Running XP SP 2 on an AD Domain.  I just want to share some files and was testing out a link to \\1.1.1.1\share and I couldn't even get to it myself. (obviously, not a real IP)

Say my hostname is 123ME.  If I do a c:\net view I can see hundreds of machines in the domain, but not mine.

On another computer, on the same Windows network, same subnet, same login name and password - I cannot browse to my target computer.  

I've checked services - comptuer browser and server are both running.

Permissions on the shared folder is domain\users RWM.

If I type "net share" I see share name "shared" and resource "c:\shared."

Thanks

turn off any firewalls (or better configure them to trust the users on the network)
reboot and then retry.

There are no firewalls on my computer or inside our network.  File sharing is enabled.

I strongly suspect there's something local on my machine - such as a service not running or something.
