When you discuss asymmetrical visibility, you're most frequently looking at a
personal firewall problem, or maybe a NetBT setting mismatch.
With Windows Vista, there are a few special possible network problems.
You can probably analyse the problem, using logs from "browstat status",
"ipconfig /all", "net config server", and "net config workstation", from each
computer. Read this article, and linked articles, and follow instructions
precisely (Download browstat, and note running the command window as admin):
