File Sharing Problem

File sharing problem:

I have two Macs connected with a LocalTalk network:
one is a Mac IIvx, running System 7.5.1, the other is a PowerBook 1400 running 7.5.3. The vx has File Sharing turned on, and I connect while using the PowerBook using the vx's owner name as login.

I can see all the volumes & CD rom, access all folders and files, except one folder called 'Applications', which when accessed from the PowerBook appears to be empty. It isn't empty, because I keep many applications in it. I already checked the General control panel, but folder protection is not on. Also, this folder 'Applications' is not on the startup volume, but on the second partition.

Does anyone know this problem, and a way to fix it?

Thanks,

Ives

What you might try is to click directly on the folder, "Applications" from the finder and select SHARING... from the file menu.  Then select the proper access levels for the owner (full access) and other users (whatever you wish).  MAKE SURE you select, "Make all enclosed folders like this one.

That should do it, unless you're using a separate networking method, such as Novell, etc...

If that doesn't work, try trashing the AppleTalk Preferences file  and the Finder preferences files from the preferences folder, and re-building your desktop.  That should help, too.

Later,
