Cannot access shared folders



I have a workgroup of 6 computers running XP Pro. All computers can access
each others files and folders (where permitted) except that I cannot access
Computer 5 from Computer 6 - no matter what I have tried. I can access
Computers 5 and 6 from the other computers. All computers are set up the same
way and Simple File Sharing is On. All folders which I particularly want to
access on Computer 5 have been individually shared and permissions assigned
and have the hand symbol showing - but I consistently get 'Access is denied may not have permission to access this computer ... ask your system

The computer and its shared folders are visible on the network.

This is preventing the setup of Sage Accounts on Computer 6 - because it
needs to access the company data on computer 5.

Any suggestions would be appreciated!

Since it seems that you are employing permission switch Simple File sharing
