Networking Vista and Win2K. They can't 'see' each other.

I have both machines on the default workgroup: WORKGROUP (go figure). I can ping with no problem and have added a user account with the same name and password to each PC. The two are connected to a gateway that was previously used to connect XP and win2k (and winME beforehand) without any difficulty. I've tried two different procedures, found through googling, that turned on LLTD and something else. The vista machine is set up as belonging to a 'private' network. Firewall is not a problem. This is nuts.
What should I try next?
