You don't mention if the client machine is windows, but I guess it is. You
need to install the Client for M$ Networks client and also enable "Log on
to network" in your dial-up settings.

Also make sure that the above-mentioned client is binded to your dial-up

Another problem might be broadcasts not being forwarded. The sympton would
be that you can't see machines in network neighbourhood, but you can use
\\machine to connect to them. I think you can use WINS to fix that, or
make the dial-up server forward broadcasts.
