OS: Win XP pro SP2. Cannot share the printer connected to computer A. Printer is shared.

From computer A, we can connect to other computers and see their shared folders. However, we cannot ping this computer from other computers. Request is timed out.

When we try " add a printer", from other computers, computer A is visible as part of the network, but we cannot drill down any further. Shared folders on computer A, are also not visible.

Any thing we turned off or missing ?

Thanks
