Access cannot open this file

We have recently added another PC to the network and have run into
difficulty when trying to open access files from the server using the
new box. We get the error message

'MS Access cannot open this file. The file is located outside your
intranet or on an untrusted site. MS Access will not open the file due
to potential security problems. To open the file, copy it to your
machine or an accessible network location.'

Yes it can be opened by copying it, but I cannot understand why it sees
the file as outside the intranet as it can be found on the server on the
network with all the other shared files.

All boxes use the same OS - XP, and the same version of Office - XP with
Front Page.

Can you help please!
