Re: Unable to share printer
You need to go into the machine that manages the printer and allow the access denied machine access or to share printer. You may have to run the network setup wizard in order for the machines to recognize each other.

Your laptop ip address setting is correct now there is reason not able to ping windows xp and windows 7 have firewall you need to enable file sharing form windows firewall. Go to control penal > windows firewall > advanced settings > inbound rules and enable file and printer sharing.
If you have tried the normal printer wizard process and were unable to get a printer to function, then verify the network name of the computer that has the shared printer and the share name of the printer, then follow these steps. Worked for Me.

You have to turn printer sharing on in vista by going to your network map and turn the printer sharing on. This should FixYa! Network Map is located in Network and Sharing Center on the computer with vista.
1. Right click on the printer icon on the computer the printer is attached to. 2. Select sharing 3. Follow the prompts to set up sharing. 4. Go to the other computer and click on add a printer. 5. Click on networked, or attached to another computer. 6. Let the computer find the printer. 7. Follow the onscreen instructions which may include installing software drivers for that particular operating system.
that is a network problem between the laptop and the PC. Look for your network settings and adjust them.
Use a tool like pctools to identify your network problems. Vista and Xp sometimes have a problem
