I think the only problem is IP address of individual computer. Is this
still static of DHCP? If it is DHCP, which computer is running DHCP?

If the problem occur again, please check both computers IP address.
Even local dns would not help you to solve this as you are connecting
using IP address. DNS only usefull if you are using name, not IP (to
convert name to IP).
