I am pretty sure that it is the computers and not the code because i tried connecting two computers on our network with Java's code from the tutorial and it did not work
Please give more details about the error you're getting. It's a connection time out, refused or what?

Before you test your program execute a telnet to the server/port and if you get any response, maybe the problem is not in the network configuration. You can do this way (in a unix shell):
$ telnet host_ip port
$ telnet 10.10.10.1 8080
