    First you need to ensure the printer is "shared" on the laptop it's (physically) connected to. This essentially tells the host laptop to "advertise" the printer out to the rest of the network.

    From the remote laptop, you then connect to this "share" and print away.

    I'd suggest you proceed by removing the printer driver software from the remote PC, ensure that the printer is shared on the host PC, then work through the "add printer" wizard from the remote PC to set up the connection (this will ask for the printer driver software if it needs it.)

    There is a possibility that firewalls may trip you up, but lets deal with that if we have to.
