Connection Time Out occurred when trying to use Migration Assistant to Transfer filess from a Windows Computer to a new iMac.  What do I do to avoid this?

I've connected the Windows computer to the iMac using an ethernet cable and both computers are on the same network.  When I started the transfer, it said it was copying the first file on both machines but nothing was happening.  Then finally it said there was a Connection Time out.  Is there anything else I need to check?

MacBook Pro, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)
