Have you checked that both machines are connected to the same network AND that said network is declared as Private?

For a WiFi network, you open Settings, Network, WiFi Pane then click on the actual connection itself (which is a button). You will be presented with a dialog for that Network Connection (by name) and in the Network Profile section it will be either a public or private network.

If it's declared as public on a computer, that means nothing is allowed to connect for either file or printer sharing.
