Windows 7: Cannot push printer via RDP between 2 W7 systems

Cannot push printer via RDP between 2 W7 systems

Hi All
I am trying to pass a printer from a local W7 system to a Remote W7 system. The printer will not surface. I can accomplish this task if I RDP to the 2008 Server.

What I have done so far in the name of "marriage" is the following:
I have created the same user with the same password on the Remote PC.
I have made the local PC a member of the same workgroup as the remote PC.
I have turned the Firewall off.

There is no problem with the functionality of the RDP connection other than this aspect. Both OS's are the same W7 Pro 32 bit. What am I missing? Thanks in advance for any help/insight.

Are the printer drivers installed on both of the W7 machines?
