Cannot connect to SQL Server via LAN

SQL Server registration
I try to add a new server registration using Enterprise Manager in a client machine to the SQL database in the server machine. I somehow keep getting 'Access denied' or registration failed. Then I can finally add the server registration after I open the shared folder at the server. Can anybody explain to me why opening the shared folder suddenly gives me permission to add the new server registration? And how do I connect without having to open the shared folder beforehand?

    For some reason the server isn't processing the NTLM authentication correctly. I restart of the SQL Service, or possible the entire SQL Server may be required.
