The other thing to make sure of is that both computers are synced with their clocks.

1. Click on the clock.
2. Click Change date and time settings...
3. Click on the Internet tab.
4. Click Change settings...
5. Click Update now
6. Wait while windows synchronizes the time.
7. Click OK.
8. Do the above for both computers that are connecting to each other.
