there are two types of file sharing, normal and simple. Unless you choose 'simple' then you must have a userid that has a password on each PC for data to be shared.

There is a 'simple file sharing mode' that does not need a password.

Do you have a defined userid for each PC that has a password?

Can each PC ping the other one via both IP and hostname?
