I'm trying to share an Epson printer between two XP machines on the same network. I set up both machines with the same network and the only thing between them is a router, but they're both on the inside.They have the same workgroup. For some reason I cannot get the second machine (printer is attatched by USB to the first one) to see the printer. I don't really get what's going wrong here but I know it annoys me.

What model Epson is it? There are many printers on the market with USB connections which will not allow themselves to be shared over a network.

It's an Epson Stylus CX5400 and it will allow printer sharing. It worked over my older systems.


Frankly I just need a solution untill I buy a print server.
