Try using the predefined hosts option under General preferences.

I would recommend making sure both machines have a static IP.

You will need to enter the listening port of the BitTorrent Sync client that you are trying to connect to. you can get this by opening up the Preferences tab.

Can the machines "ping" each other?

Are the machines connected by wifi?

My Wifi router has an option called "AP Isolation" which stops the wireless PCs from talking to each other.

Does it work if one is on wifi and the other on a wire ?

You shouldn't need to change the default configuration for the PCs to find each other on a single LAN.
