    So go in and share your printer and then you will be able to access/print to this device. You will need to make sure windows firewall is allowing file and printer sharing and not blocking it.

    Also to make your life easier, Make sure both computers are on the same workgroup and that they have unique names (Right click my computer, Properties, Computer Name) Make changes accordingly if needed and a reboot will be required.
