Had same problem. My old xp computer couldn't access my new vista computer but the vista computer could access the xp computer.
After over a week of troubleshooting I found the problem which I was going to uninstall anyway because I like to run AVG Free.
Problem was the stinking Mcafee that was preloaded on the vista computer.
Uninstalled it and my computers comunicate with no problems.
I am running AVG Free on both computers now with no problems.
The Mcafee wants to take over your computer which can really lead to some headaches!
Hope this helps.
