I am trying to network 2 Windows 7 professional computers. I can see the computers on the network and I can ping the IP addresses on both computers. However when I try to access the computers in question I get the error message saying that I do not have permission to access that particular computer. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

While accessing the other computer, Is it asking for username and password ?

If not disable the UAC (User Access Control) and check,

Create a administrator account on both computers with same username and password and test.
