Wondering about this, If I reboot my XP workstation I see all my computers in NN in windows.
dcerouter, MD's, Windows pc's etc...
Leave it idle for a a while come back and there maybe 2 of 7 showing, I can search for the pc and find it ofcourse. All my pc's are in the LMCE workgroup I have no mapped drives setup from this Xp station or any for that matter. Just wondering if ping to keep alive needs to be checked for these devices and that is fine if so for an actual LMCE device but what about Unknown Devices.
I suggest you go to m$ and tell them to fix their shitty "NN", as it has never really worked properly in the past and apparently still doesn't.
