Shared tab missing!

When using Windows 7 Professional and exploring to a network folder (via UNC path), I have created a folder on the server, but I'm unable to "share" it because the "sharing tab" is missing. When I "right click" and select "properties" of the folder....the only options I get is "General, Security, Previous Versions and Customize". I'm stumped. I'm an administrator on my PC as well as the server. Is this a "known" bug or does anyone have any ideas. I also enabled "Network Discovery" option as well.

Thanks in advance!
