Hi Mr. Peter,

It is so easy sharing a printer with its client computer.As you have confirmed your main computer is connected with a printer and you want to share it with your client computers.Please follow the below steps how to share your printers.
1.Go to the start-control panel-devices and printer option and click on it.
2.You will see the printer icon.
3.Right click the appropriate printer's icon which is attached to your server computer and select 'Properties'and click on it.
4.Then click the 'sharing tab'.The sharing tab will appear.
5.Click on the 'Change sharing options' button.You will be shown User Account Control prompt.
6.Click 'Continue' button.
7.Now you will see a wizard written with your printer name and properties at end.Look into the middle of the wizard. You will find a square box written along with 'Share this printer'.Please select that box.
8.Then please enter the appropriate name of the printer in the 'Share name' text box, or leave it as default printer name.
9.Then select the 'Render print jobs on client computers check box.(Note:Click the additional drivers button,if you have shared your printer with users running different versions of windows.The different versions of windows require different printer drivers.)

Before you can use a device like a printer or scanner across a network, the device must be shared properly. To share your scanner or printer properly across the network, on the computer where the printer or scanner is directly installed and connected, click “Start”, “Control Panel”, “Printers and Other Hardware” then “Printers and Faxes”. Here, right-click your printer or scanner and select “Sharing”.

In the printer or scanner’s “Properties” dialog, in “Sharing” tab, make sure “Share this printer” is selected then enter your device’s shared name in the “Share name” text field. For example, without quotes “Scanner network” then click “OK”. After this, you need to add the shared printer or scanner to the rest of the computers on the network.

To do this, on every computer, click “Start”, “Control Panel”, “Printers and Other Hardware” then “Printers and Faxes”. Next, click “Add a printer” then click “Next”. In “Add Printer Wizard” dialog, select “A network printer, or a printer attached to another computer” then click “Next”. Windows will then search the network for possible shared devices and display the results on the screen.

Select the shared device you created earlier called “Scanner network” then click “Next”. And that’s it. The shared printer or scanner should now appear on the computer.
