vista pc won't access network shared folders

    We have a network domain, all XP pro compters, though the domain controller
    is NT. I have successfully joined this vista pc, and can 'see' all of the
    computers and servers on the domain, BUT cannot access any of the shared
    folders.
    Can't map to them which is what we usually do, can't browse to them, it asks
    for a username and password but will not authenticate using good credentials,
    actually will not even authenticate using the server credentials.
    I have exhaustively checked the network settings but do not know where else
    to look.
    I am using our standard network dns, wins, gateway and IP in TCP/ IPV4
    We will soon be moving our 300 pc's to Vista, and this is our test pc, so I
    need to get this one right before we proceed.
    I was wondering if it has to do with active directory? We are planning to
    move to active directory soon as well.

    more info...
    I have turned off the Firewall as we have our own.
    I can access the folder structure on the primary domain controller, and its
    backup, but can see none of the file sharing servers. When I try, I am
    prompted with a login box, and though I am logged onto the primary domain,
    and authenticated with my administrator credentials, I put in the same
    credentials in the authentication box and it tells me they are incorrect.
    I have shared a folder on the Vista Pc and am able to see it from an xp
    computer.

  3. In Vista computer, do net view \\serveripaddress. Do you receive a system
    error?

    By the way, why do you use 164 IP?

    Yes, I get system error 5, access is denied

    I am using a 164 IP because that is the IP scheme for our network LAN

    I found the answer, it was in the Local Security Policies in the vista
    machine. I had to change it to a lower setting to accomodate the NT domain.
    thanks
