Have 10.10, but for some reason cannot access an XP workgroup or machine. I can ping in both directions from Ubuntu to XP and vice versa.

When I try to open the Windows Workgroup I get the following error:


Unable to mount location.
Failed to retrieve share list from server.

Use Unicasting : (compatibility for some DHCP Servers)

was turned on the router, when unchecked I am back to normal!
