What to do is add both computers' IP addresses to the "Safe/Trusted Zone". You should then be able to access shared folders and such from both computers.

McAfee usually sorts the local IP addresses out for you, ZoneAlarm insists on blocking them out of the box because it thinks that's what you want to do.

Usually you can add a range of IPs to declare safe - they're usually 192.168.0.x or 10.0.0.x ranges.
