Cannot add a Win XP Pro workstation to the SBS 2008 Domain.  Connect wizard cannot find the domain.  Workstation can see network but cannot open resources.  This has recently happened, previous the workstation could access all resources.  Workstation can open files OK when connect remotely via VPN

Make sure the DNS settings are correct on the XP Machine (they need to be that of your SBS server) if you are using dhcp ensure the client is getting an address from that dhcp server and has not been given staic IP detials.
