I hope this is a simple thing.  I have installed win2k8, it's a dc and running wins.

All clients are running windows 7, and I've opened tcp and UDp ports 137 - 139, the server is running computer browser.

When I do net view on the client win 7 pc it shows the server not the clients pc's

On the server, you can go in to your IPv4 configuration, go to the WINS tab and checkmark:  "Enable NetBIOS over TCP/IP"
Give it 10 minutes or so, then do another Net View and see if it shows up.

Thanks for the response.

Unfortunatly, this has not worked. Do you think there is a setting on the win7 pc firewall that needs to change?

Oy!... check the clients for the same setting "Enable NetBIOS over TCP"... I misread that the Server was missing from the list, not that the clients were missing from the list...

The servers did no have this setting but were showing in the list, I have made this change on a clinet but it's still not showing.

Could it be a setting on client firewall

You should be able to set via GPO, but first should test out on a single machine to get the right parameters...  Take a look in Windows Firewall:Allowed Programs...  Two good programs/features to look at would be:
- Network Discovery   & 
- File/Print Sharing

On the GP, best practices say to create a new GP (don't edit the Default Domain Policy) and tweek the Firewall settings there, and apply the GP to the Domain...
