firewall blocking laptop connection

hello. i have two pc, a desktop and a laptop. My laptop shares my desktop's internet connection using a wireless router, D-Link. Both PC can connect to the internet with no problems. However my laptop can't connect to my desktop. But when I disabled McAfee's firewall, i can connect and share files with my desktop.

I would like to know if there is a way for me to connect to my desktop without having to disable McAfee's firewall?

Thanks a bunch.
