Firstly, if the machines are not already in the same work-group then set all the machines to the same work-group. You can also do this task from network wizard process.

Secondly, you need open the firewall exception for printer and file sharing on the computer with the printer. Right click the printer, set it shared. On all other Computers go to network places and browse to the computer with the printer. Double click the computer, you should see the printer. Double click it to install it locally.
