In last months pca was a query on how to share your printer over a home network,following the instructions,when the second pc searches for the printer the first thing that comes up is "workgroup"exactly as the instructions,then double clicking on the workgroup and the name of the other pc should appear but thats where im stuck nothing appears?
access has been allowed in both firewalls so im a bit stuck now?

if you have followed instructions similar to these you should be OK..

Yes done exactly as that,the instructions are not as detailed as the ones in pca though,firewall exceptions etc
