2 computers connect but only 1 will "talk"

  wobbler 16:00 10 Mar 2005

I have connected 2 PC's together via the LAN ports using a hub. Both are running XP pro. One PC can see the other and access its files. The other, however, can see the 1st PC but when I try and access its files remotely I keep getting an error messge. This happens when i try and access either the files or view the workgroup computers.
The error message is :-
\\latop is not accessible you might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact admin to see if you have the necessary permission.

the network path was not found.

Check that firewalls and anti virus are all disabled but still only one way communication.
