Cannot access network client from server

After changing the administrative password on a network client (running Windows XP SP-3), the server (running Windows 7 Professional SP-1) cannot access that client.  The server can ping the client, but cannot access files or folders, or map a network share.  Other clients on the network can still access this client, after updating their credentials.  The client which can't be accessed from the server is sharing its drives with Everyone, granting full access.

Did you update the credentials on the server? Sounds like your other clients are connecting with the administrative credentials even though everyone is allowed acccess.

Yes, from User Accounts, I modified the server's credentials for that client, using the same user name and password as the other clients are using to access that client.

Rebooting cured this.  Sorry I didn't try that before posting, but your comment about "updating" credentials caused me to think it might help.
