Have you set up the printer on the laptop?

First you have to set the printer for shareing.
In the printers folder on the desktop right click the printer and select shareing.

Go to printers > add printer > network printer > browse to find the printer on the desk top click on it and follow instructions.

Make sure that the firewalls also accept file/printer sharing.

Also sometimes you have to load the drivers on both computers. I did with a Samsung Laser. Epson USB inkjet worked OK without but the Samsung connects by LPT/1

Woodcchip has it.

I have a Tosh and an HP as well as a desktop. You have to install the printer on the Tosh using the CD in the normal way. Turn off the firewall.
