      As stated, check if the XP SP2 workstations have ping blocked by the WS firewall.
      Plus do you know Daniel has an SBS forum where you can ask more of this type of question as well as get you on the road to upgrade to 2003/Longhorn in the near future (you know that SBS is nearing end of life?)

        configure your router firewallfor further access using port 3389 in your routers port forwarding .
