I have a laptop used at a home office workgroup and when in my office wants to be able to print to my TCP/IP network printer.  I automatically see all of the shared printers without changing the workgroup name but not the TCP/IP printer.  I have tried and changed the workgroup name and still no show of the TCP/IP printer.  i have even tried to manually locate by typing in the IP address and it still shows not found.
Both pcs running Windows XP
