Im trying to share my pc to a network so that other computers connected to the network can print from the same printer, ive enabled printer sharing though the other computer on the network can see my computer name but not the printer.
When I set this up in XP, I needed to (from the other computer) go to the Add Printer wizard and browse for a printer. At that stage only the other computer on the network was shown, but on double clicking that, a drop down list appeared of the attached printers and I was able to select the one I wanted.
I've just been through a similar problem with 3 PC's this morning and discovered that it was a firewall problem. I had to insert the IP address of each computer on the network to get the computers talking together properly.
Firstly have you tried with the firewalls turned off and see if it works then.
