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 Windows 7 system to a Remote Windows 7 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 Windows 7 Pro 32 bit. What am I missing? Thanks in advance for any help/insight.

Are the printer drivers installed on both of the Windows 7 machines?
