Can only access libraries one way in Homegroup

Can anyone in this forum help me please.

I've got my homegroup working to a certain extent.

My laptop can access my printer and also my libraries on my desktop, which is my main objective.

However, my desktop can see the libraries on my laptop but cannot access them. I have all the relevant boxes ticked so that these can be accessed by the homegroup. When I click the relevant libraries the computer shows that they are shared with the homegroup.

Should both computers have access to each others libraries or is it just meant to be that other group members have access to the computer that created the group.
