I hope you also imported the configuration into WPKG client on the second

I see you're not using a path-user setting but instead the machine account. I
personally never tried it but remember that there were some discussions that in
certain cases it does not work properly. Tomasz can comment on this, he knows by
heart I think.
I suggest you to try using a path-user ("DOMAIN\user" notation) and password in
order to use this user to connect to the specified share.

This is a typical scheme shown when WPKG client fails to connect to the network
share hosting wpkg.js.
I see you also added "/debug" to the WPKG parameters. I recommend you to use
"/synchronize" only and control the debug level within config.xml. This will
allow you to change it later without having to re-deploy a configuration update
to your clients.
