    Hello and thank you for taking the time.

    I have a few computers at home on a network and suddenly one of them isn't behaving as expected from a networking standpoint. It is "Not Connected" and there is not a "Connect As' button as I would expect. I can share it's screen but I want to connect and view its file structure to grab some files I need from it. I have been able to do this until today and don't know how to troubleshoot it.

    I have provided screenshots for illustration. The "ChadsMacMini" is the one that is not working as expected while the "ChadsiMac" is operating normally.

    Someone turned off file sharing in system preferences.
