I think I'm loosing my mind!  This is very easy but it won't work.  File/Print sharing is enabled in my network connection.  On the machine directly connected to the printer I selected properties, enabled sharing, etc.  On the other XP machine when I want to add a printer, the printer cannot be found.  NetBios for TCP/IP is enabled, internet connection firewall is disabled, workgroup is the same.....what is going on, what am I missing?  Please help.

Is it possible that the firewall in my router combined with MAC address filtering could be interfering?  Just about the only thing I can think of.

Never mind....just what I thought, it was the internet connection firewall.  Thanks anyway.
