I have 2 puters connected through a Ethernet Hub (EN104). I can go to Network Neighborhood and share files with no problem (as soon as I turn off Zone Alarm). I have not been able to share printers. The help file said " click on Network Neighborhood, then click on the puter with the printer you want to use, then click on the printer icon" thats the rub, I don't see a printer icon !!!!

First, on the computer that has the printer, right-click on Network Neighborhood, click File and Print Sharing and confirm there is a check mark next to 'I want to be able to allow others to print to my printers.' Then go to Start>Settings>Printers, right-click on the printer you would like to share and choose Sharing.

Nothing about Printer sharing !!!!!!!

Also nothing under: Start - Setttings - Printers, about sharing.
I am sure it is something simple that I am not doing, because they share files fine.

Sorry! You have to choose Properties when right-clicking on Network Neighborhood and you will see the File and Print Sharing button on the first tab.
