printer sharing

erm i'm having alot of problems setting up printer sharing - ive ran the XP network wizard on both computers and i have given each computer the same WORKGROUP name, and the Add Printer Wizard i cant find the printer when i browse for network printers. Ive made sure the printer IS shared on the downstairs pc and i have enabled file and print sharing on both computers and i'm still having trouble. i have tried pinging the the computer but it returns with 100% loss. I have checked the printer is plugged in and switched on and all that jazz but still nothing :(

Without knowing which client firewall you use, I can't tell you that. Check the manual; it's very important that you know your firewall inside out.
