Games Server Connection Problems

I have a Plusnet lite account and I am tryig to connect to a game that is being run on a friends machine who has Plusnet ADSL, how ever I cannot 'see' this machine and cannot ping it.
If I use my BT PAYG account there is no problem I can connect and ping etc.
Why can't I 'see' this machine using my PlusNet account ??
