So are both of these computers plugged into the same router? If so then you dont need to setup any port forwarding because they are on the same lan and subnet.
maybe you have a firewall blocking you on one of the pcs
i have the same problem
yes, i am seeing similar behavior when i tried to setup an ftp server. basically you can log into the server but it will timeout while attempting to load the directory. a similar occourance when trying to setup http server. if you figure this out let me know.
try turning passive mode on or off on your ftp client or ftp server software
re: passive mode on ftp

The client could be explorer or just type [cmd] in the [run] windows of your start menu and the command would be [ftp <address>].
