• Computer Browser
• DHCP Client
• DNS Client
• Network Connections
• Network Location Awareness
• Remote Procedure Call (RPC)
• Server
• TCP/IP Netbios helper
• Workstation
EDIT: Shut down both computers for 2 minutes and restart with PC1 first, with the printer attached. Make sure both machines have the same username and password. Check your firewall that a printer port or the above services are not being blocked.
