I have a network share setup on an external hard disk, connected to an XP Pro desktop PC.  I can browse to the share from every other PC on the network, but not the DC!  I can connect to the DC from the XP PC fine, just not the other way around.  Things I have tried:

Ping the PC from the DC: Pings and resolves the correct name
Added a static route in the hosts file on the DC: No luck
Added a DNS record on the DC: No luck
Turned off the Firewall on the PC: no luck
Tried (from the Run command) \\IPaddress and \\Hostname: Fails, the network path was not found
Tried IPCONFIG /Registerdns: No Luck

I have no idea why our Domain Controller refuses to see this PC when everthing else can...any ideas guys?

Try to enable Network Discovery on the server.

The server can see all other n/w shares, just not this one.

The problem lay with Virtual PC.  It appears the network services plugin casued the problems, removed VPC all working!
