I have a USB printer physically attached to one Windows 7 Pro station (HP Laserjet 1018).
If I share the printer and list it in the directory (or even if I dont list it), the other Windows 7 Pro station can see the printer, they can install the printer and they can submit jobs to the printer.

The jobs submitted to the printer from station 2 can be see on both station 2 as well as the station with the printer connected.

The status of the printer on the second system says everything is ready.

The physically connected station can print fine
The remote station however when a print job is submitted it just sits in the queue with a status of printing.

File and print sharing is wide open on the firewall for both stations

I am at a loss, any suggestions on sharing a usb connected printer between two Windows 7 Professional domain connected stations?
