    can 1 computer talk to the other computer(meaning can they share files between them)

    if yes then install printer locally on computer.
    Go to start>settings>control panel>printers & fax.

    right click the printer. click on "sharing"
    enable sharing and give the printer a simple name preferably with no spaces. apply settings and exit.

    on the remote computer go to start>settings>control panel>printers & fax. choose add a printer. follow directions to install networked printer.
