Ensure that TCP-IP is enabled for SQL Server.

Ensure that the login/security context that you are using to go from PC2 to PC1 has appropriate privileges on PC1.

BTW - what error are you getting?

if work group than local usernames and passwords must be the same. if on a domain setup the local admin group to have the correct domain group. turn off windows firewall.

Configure firewall to have the access
Turn ON SQL Server services
Configure domain ID to have access on both the machines
Enable TCP/IP
Check the application security log for SSMS to find out error while connecting the server
