McAfee firewall is blocking a trusted ip address

My hard drive fried and I replaced it.  Upon reinstalling Mcafee Total Protection my other computer will not let me acces it or the printer connected to it.  I have done the trust this computer password deal and it shows the computer as trusted.  Here is the funny thing:  call my computer A and the other one B.  A can not access B, but B can access A.  They are listed as trusted to each other, so why can A access B only when I turn off the firewall? I have tried restarting both computers to no avail.  What am I missing?  Please help.

Type the IP Address of the Computer (B) and select the type as Home and Save it, follow the same steps with other Computer (A) as well.
