Are there any software firewalls installed on either of these units (including the WIndows Firewall)?  If so, make sure both are disabled at least for testing purposes.  Also watch out for antivirus suites that have built in worm protection or any other port blocking components.  If possible, disable all antivirus functions for testing purposes.
