Unequal visibility is generally a problem with a personal firewall, blocking
traffic in one direction.
Networking computers running Windows Vista and Windows XP, together, presents

You could diagnose the problem, using logs from "browstat status", "ipconfig
/all", "net config server", and "net config workstation", from each computer.
