You're not providing a lot of detail here. The problem description "not the
other way round" doesn't provide a lot of clues.

Is Password Protected Sharing enabled or disabled? Do you have the right
account enabled on each computer?

Re: file sharing not working
I had that problem, and after fiddling, it even switched around. The result
was that the networks were not named EXACTLY the same on each computer, and
merge/delete networks not needed. Both computers have the correct network
names, and I can now see/transfer from each.
