You should be able to do this with no problem.
Firstly, can you ping each machine from it's partner?
If you can then you have basic connectivity and there must be some other reason why it won't work.
I'm assuming you have Windows on the PCs. If one or both are XP, try turning off the built-in firewall and see if it works then.
Also, when you try to connect between machines do you get nothing at all, or do you get a dialogue asking for a username and password? If you get the latter then all you need is to set up suitable access permissions
