    Hello I am starting to think that there is some setting on my pix 501
    that blocks netbios in the switch. I cant think of this being possible
    but it is starting to make sense. I have 3 pcs
    1 w2k pro 1 winXP pro and one W2K3 server in a workgroup. They are all
    in the same workgroup allthough the winxp and w2k3 have 2ips. I am
    able to rdeskop and even call the share with \\ipaddress but no
    \\computername, i cant see them in the workgroup either. they all
    belong to the same workigroup. May be I need wins, I tried lmhost
    static on the w2k pro but no luck. Any ideas?. Thanks

    Is this under a VPN setup or just a LAN environment with a PIX for Internet
    firewalling?

    It is just a lan, all pcs plug to the pix, I will try a hub to check if
    it makes any difference

    Have you tried turning off the netbios fixup protocol?
