Network computers

I have two computers connected to a hub for network purposes. My problem is that I am not able to print from the computer that is not connected to the printer. I get an error messege "Failed to open". I have tried everything I possibly could to fix the problem with no results. Help.

Have you installed file and printer sharing on the computer with the printer? Have you "shared" the printer itself? What does the printer icon look like in Control Panel --> Printers? It should have a hand or a network cable under the printer.
The computer that is getting the printer not found: Do you see the printer at all in Control Panel --> Printers? If not, then add it as a network printer and point it to the other computer.

Both computers must be on for this printer to print. Because the printer is locally attached to one computer which controlls it... it's not a networked printer.

How about some comment as to why the first answer was rejected. you have not posted enough info for an answer. and it would take a book to guess at your problem...

I doubt that you "have tried everything I possibly could to fix the problem" or you would have solved the problem.

If you are running NT check the event logs to see if there are error messages containing useful information.

If you want a better answer you have to provide more information. This is a generic networking forum and you haven't mentioned what operating system you are using.
