Go to http://localhost:631/admin on each machine - you should only have to do this once. Make sure all these check boxes are checked on the machine with the printer attached: Share published printers connected to this system Allow printing from the Internet On every machine that you want to administer from another machine, make sure the "Allow remote administration" box is checked. You may also have to open port 631 in the firewall. On all the machines that do NOT have the printer attached, make sure the "Show printers shared by other systems" box is checked.
