Sudden loss of file sharing with a direct Ethernet connection (no switch or router in use)

I've set up a direct ethernet connection (not using a switch or router) between two windows 10 computers and was sharing files between them last night, but this morning while I was working with them, the file sharing stopped working. I can ping each computer from the other, but can't see the other computer through Windows networking. Firewalls are still off. Any ideas why this would happen?
