I have successfully set up sharing a printer connected to computer no1 with computer 2. I am now trying to share a second printer with computer no1 which is connected to computer 2. the printer shows 'ready' on both computers and I have selected the sharing option on both. when I try a test print i get the message 'printing' at first but nothing happens and then it changes to 'error'. any suggestions?

Did u run the printer setup wizard and install it as a lan/network printer on comp1 ?
