Let us try some simple troubleshooting steps
  1. can you ping to and from either machines?
  2. Have you tried disabling both security suites, then pinging either machines, or trying to connect?
  3. If the answer is yes that had successful replies, especially for option 2, then you know for sure that its the security suite settings that you have to tweak.

So W7 = 192.168.1.100, XP = 192.168.1.101?

From XP to W7 it's good.
From W7 to XP, no good.

How did you setup IP for XP?

Type ipconfig /all in command prompt of each machine, and post the results.
