Server 2008 can't browse XP shares

Last Modified: 2012-05-09
Hello all,

We have an SBS 2008 server and XP clients on a LAN.  The client PCs can browse shares on SBS, get e-mail etc...  However the SBS server cannot browse XP shares.  

When trying to browse PCs using START -> RUN -> \\xpmachinename we get error 0x80070035 The network path was not found.  

If we try \\ipaddress we get error 0x80004005 Unspecified error.

Firewall is disabled on on all machines

Any help is appreciated
