Go to control panel for printers on system A.

Right-Click on receipt printer and select "Sharing".

Set "Shared As" name and click Apply. You should see a pair of hands under that printer's icon now indicating that it is a shared printer.

Go to printer control panel on system B.

Add a new printer.

Type: Network

Find system A in browse

Select system A's printer, and finish wizard.

You should end up with a printer icon with a little pipe underneath of it showing that it is a network printer.

Go into the management utility on system B and select the same printer driver we just added in the step above in your local config for the current machine.

You should now be able to print to the shared printer.

**See the basic networking doc for a more detailed explanation.
