You need to set the DNS server for both the machine sharing it's connection and all of the machines with whom it is connected to the same address.
OpenDNS IP Addresses
Windows usually points the machines to the router for a DNS server, the machines then are assigned a DNS specified by your ISP, but when ICS is enabled there may be DNS conflict between the connected machines and voila, there's your problem.

@redrifle, sorry to say this is not the issue here. I work with many clients that have internal DNS servers, all machines are pointed to the same DNS servers at the same IP address and shared printing still does not work. Windows DNS, *IX DNS, or external DNS does not matter. Just does not work. Thanks for the idea. -WS
