    This problem is most often caused by a misconfigured firewall. Make sure
    all firewalls - whether third-party or XP's SP2 Windows Firewall - are
    configured to allow the lan as trusted. Here is a troubleshooter by MVP
    Hans-Georg Michna. Take the time to go through it and it will pinpoint
    the problem area(s):
