Default Problem with remote connection.

I have 2 pc's, one is wireless and the other is wired to the router. They're both running XP Home so I can't do the remote connection using XP. So I tried RealVNC, had it installed on both computers, had one computer set up as the Viewer, the other set up as the Server. Everytime I tried to connect using the other computers IP I got a "10061" unable to connect error. I disabled the firewall on both computers and it still happened. Then I tried TightVNC and UltraVNC and neither of those could connect. What am I doing wrong? Am I missing something? I'm not too familiar with this kinda stuff.

No dice huh? I'm surprised I haven't gotten one of those generic "run msconfig and uncheck all startup.." answers lol
