What operating systems are they running, what kind of internet connection do you have (dial up, ADSL etc) and have you set up any internet connection sharing software?

Have you got any firewalls running on either PC?

Internet connection sharing is picky about things like that, but if you haven’t it normally works quite well.

How did you set it up (with a wizard or manually)?
