    This could be an MTU problem. Try lowering the MTU on the XP machine (I think). Instructions can be found if you search the forum I believe.

    BUGGER ME!!!! Praise the Lord,

    Its working,

    It apperars that one fundamental piece of imformation was never passed on, or does not apply in all cases. Basically i followed the advice and tutorial given in earlier post, at the time i have only been rebooting the CLIENT machine , never has it said reboot the HOST pc, but due to some maintenace i had to carry out earlier today i had to turn both machines off. I then powered the client pc on then the Host, not expecting to see great things for the IE on the client machine i gave it a whirl.............the rest is history.

    Thanks to all that have given there input.
