Only connecting one way

First to those who get frustrated about us networking novices asking questions
let me apologize up front. I have searched for answers to no avail.
PROBLEM: My mother is connected to the internet via Bellsouth DSL, I first
installed pcAnywhere then VNC and I have the same problem. While I can go
from her computer to mine on either program, I cannot connect to hers. She
has a static IP as evidenced by multiple trips to MyIP.com. She has no
installed firewall software and only the external DSL modem. I can understand
possibly having to configure her modem, but I do not understand why either
program will connect from her but not to her therefore eliminating any
configuration of her modem. She is running WinME, I am running XP. Any
suggestions are greatly appreciated.
