Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

I’m going to guess that you’ve done remote control before. You’re probably facing a name resolution issue. I’m picturing two machines getting their network configuration information from a broadband router. They’re able to reach systems on the Internet, on the other side of the router, just fine. This side of the router, though, there’s nothing managing names for you.
You can work around that by using the IP address of the second device instead of its machine name. Or create a hosts file entry.

    Please provide more details. What OS is on each system? If windows, what version? Have you set up fine and print sharing, and do you want to do that? How do you want to control the second system? Remote desktop or some other method? Thank you.

    I meant file and print sharing, not fine and print sharing, sorry for the typo :-)

    You can do RDP to the second computer using its ip address.
