Default network access denied

I am trying to connect my laptop and desktop on a home network. I have networked the computers and they can be seen on each others monitor when i view work group computers. I can look at shared files on my desktop from the laptop but I am denied access to my laptop from the desktop. It states I do not have permission please contact administrator. I am using zone alarm but I have even disconnected this to see if that is blocking me. Please can some one help me.
I have given permission on both computers to share the files. The desktop is sharing its files with the laptop but not vice versa. My desktop is connected by wireless and my laptop is connected to the router via lan.

XP home and pro, thats probably ya problem then. They dont work well together coz of the differences in security as far as i know. Look here
