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?

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!
