After ZoneAlarm install can't print to shared printer

After installing ZonAlarm on both PC's one WinXP PC can still see but no longer print to the Epson Stylus Photo R800 which is connected to the other WinXP PC. What can I do to fix this please? There are no error messages, I tell it to print to the R800 and wait and wait. The PC connected to the printer can still print to it.

Add the IP range for your home network to ZA's Firewall settings (under the Zones Tab) and move the Trusted Zones security slider down to Medium.  You'll need to tell ZA on both machines about the network otherwise one will refuse to let stuff out to it and the PC with the printer attached will refuse to accept connections.
You may also have to give permission for the Servers and Controller App and Spooler Subsystem App to access the internet.
