As a fairly recent Mac convert, one of life's little niggles is the seeming inability of Tiger (10.4.8) to resolve the names of WinXp PCs on the local LAN. I can browse to them fine, set up shares to them, use smbclient to them, but can't ping them or use their names in things like VNC or RDC.

I know I can put names in the etc/hosts file, but that dictates using static IP addresses, which I'd rather not do. I've seen many other posts regarding this problem, but no obvious solutions. Anyone got one?

Thanks!

Powerbook G4 12, Mac OS X (10.4.8)
