Windows 7: Lost connection between Win7 laptop & Vista desktop (x64)

Lost connection between Win7 laptop & Vista desktop (x64)

I did set up a connection between my Win 7 x64 laptop & vista x64 desktop where I could access my desktop files from the laptop but no access to laptop from the desktop & I was ok with that. Suddenly a few days back, I lost the connection from the laptop & I don't have any clue to that. I've changed the network types between home & public but it didn't work. What should I do to restore the connection. Thanks!
