High Sierra File Sharing

When opening up file shares on other Macs on my network that show up Shared Section of the PF sidebar. I get an error suggesting no shares or insufficient privileges (both incorrect), see attached screenshot. This problem is not rendered when connecting to the same computer using Finder. I did notice that the problem is limited to AFP connections and not SMB when using PF. Using connect to server with smb:// works, afp:// does not. So I would suppose that PF is showing the AFP link and not the SMB? If that is the case why would Finder work and not PF? Both computers are running current patch level High Sierra macOS and file sharing is checked in System Preferences. Any suggestions? PF is up to date.
Thanks

    Hi, 

    Please follow the instruction and check if the issue still persists: 

    1. Open your terminal and paste the following command to check if Path Finder has been slapped with the quarantined extended attribute:
      xattr /Applications/"Path Finder.app"

    2. If you see com.apple.quarantine returned as output from that last command, then go ahead and run this next command:
      xattr -d com.apple.quarantine /Applications/"Path Finder.app"

    You won't get any feedback or output from that command, but that's okay because you can just run the first command again to see for yourself if the com.apple.quarantine attribute shows up again. It shouldn't, and now Path Finder is freed from Apple quarantine jail. Restart your PathFinder now. 

    Let me know how it goes.

    Best Regards,
    Jordan

    Thanks Jordan, Looks like PF was not in quarantine. Executing the xattr
    command return no result. Any other ideas? suggestions. PF is still not
    connecting to shares when Finder is.
    THanks
