Windows 7: They see me but I can't see them

They see me but I can't see them

Hi guy's,

I visited many times to search win 7 problems and now have one I can't seem to figure out! I'm on a network VPN and can access all computers and work stations but one. I can ping it and see its media file but can't see that computer. I have no issues with any other computer on our network. Now that computer can see me and access me, so why can I not see or access it? I can see and access it from any other workstation or computer but mine. And of course of all the computers on our network, that is the only one I really need access too! I'm fairly new to Networking but learning fast. I do know my way around a computer pretty good but no geek, so go easy. Any suggestions?

Thanks for the reply, been out of town for a couple of day's. Yes, I have checked firewall settings on both machines. Even tried turning off firewall on both machines to no avail. And yes both are win 7 x32. The answer has to be easy, and I'm sure I'll be embaresed when I find it! I got a new laptop when out of town and set it up last night. When I got to work I logged it in to our network and it can see the workstation and access it. So it has to be my computer! I should add that when I had finished building this computer and all was well I moved all my XP files and programs over and then spent the next week fixing the mess it made. I'm working well and stable now but apparently that workstation doesn't like something I did or changed! But if so, why can I see and access all computers and WS but this one?
