    Are you connecting over the same network? Or outside it? If outside, then perhaps that port isn't being forwarded or allowed.
    If you are inside it, then perhaps you simply don't have screen sharing enabled.
    Check and recheck everything on both computers and your router -- and your modem if coming in from the outside.
