It would help if you told us how the machines are connected and the IP (at least the first 3 numbers of the IP)

Your system does not know about the remote machine. How are both the systems connected to each other?

Can you ping the remote machine? Firstly just try to make the systems communicate and recognize each other.

Try

You may already know this, but I figured I'd throw it out there anyway.

If you have confirmed that there is firewall between the two machines, it is most likely IPTABLES. There are multiple ways to stop it such as (as root):

Code:
service iptables stop
If you would like to allow access between the two machines without completely stopping IPTABLES (or any other firewall), there are a few resources that will help you out:
