Shared printer will not connect

I have a HP Color Laserjet 1600 connected via USB.  I went into the properties and made this printer a shared printer.  I turned off windows firewall and enabled simple file sharing via folder options.  Attached is the error received.

Make sure your DNS setting are configured correctly on both computers. Also, make sure you can ping the host computer. If you can't there inlies the problem. If not, make sure the two computers are on the same domain/workgroup.

Is there a way to fix this so I can pick it from the directory?

We’d all like to think our company’s data is well protected, but when you ask IT professionals they admit the data probably is not as safe as it could be.

If the printer is set to show in directory on the server, then it should be there.

It shows up in the directory to choose the printer but you receive the error shown above.

DOnt use the Wizard to select printer from the directory.

Use my first post:

make sure a firewall is not turned on.....if it is either turn it off or make an exeption rule to allow what your needing it to do.
