Hello

I have a small problem which I do not see a logic behind it....

If I access a machine called "Server" that has a IP of 192.168.1.23, if I go to //Server/Folder1/Folder2, I see inside lets say 2 folders. But if I go to //192.168.1.23/Folder1/Folder2 I see 7 folders! If I go directly to that PC and see it thru its "My Computer" I see that in (for example) C:\Folder1\Folder2 there are 7 folders....

Why does this happen? How can I solve this?

To clearify:
This seems to be happening only on Windows XP. Windows 7 (as far as I remember) does not have this issue.
They are accessing this share thru network drives which has the same thing as showing less folders.
The server is running Windows 2003 Small Business
All machines are on a domain and the DC is the that W2SB machine.

Thank you

XP is over 10 years old. Would you be surprised if a product over 10 years had issues?
