Cant see remote XP machines Scheduled tasks from a 2008 R2 Server

Im trying to do a new Sophos roll out on a new 2008 R2 Server in order for it to roll out correctly to XP machines it needs to be able to see scheduled tasks. I have several 2008 and 2003 Domain Controllers when I browse to a Windows XP machine from a windows 2003 server I can see all the shares and Scheduled Tasks folder. When I browse to the same Machine from My Windows 2008 R2 Server I cannot see the Scheduled Tasks folder. Even If I trun the firewall off on the server and PC this still doesnt work. I have the right Group policies in place to allow File and Print sharing etc. Also I have enabled and started the Network Discovery Services on the 2008 server, but now I am stuck.

Any help would be appreciated.

    in the end seems you dnt see schedueld tasks from 2008 servers to XP machines. This wasnt the cause of the issue it was remote registry firewall setting that had to be changed
