First off I'd check if the client PC's essential Services.msc are set to
Auto start and not disabled. The likes of: Computer Browser, Server,
Workstation and Remote Procedure Call.
Secondly, if it's a Win XP SP2 box then check the Windows Firewall if it is
set to allow as Exceptions access to File and Sharing in Windows Networks.
Windows Firewall alone can prevent remote management of the PC using MMC, so
investigate perhaps loosening the settings a bit via domain GPO for instance
you can specify LAN subnet as a range where firewall settings would be less
If it's an earlier version of Windows then see if any third-party firewall
product has it locked down.
Such problems could also occur cause of incorrect DNS settings, but since
the machine managed to rejoin the domain I guess they're okay.
