I have enabled Windows 7 network discoverable, but it does not show up. I have shared a printer that is connected to this system.

Is there more I have to do?

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

Please have a look at this How To Geek article on network sharing of a printer

If after going through these settings it still doesn't work, edit your question accordingly.

Also something to check:

The firewall might be blocking. Go to start then control panel then windows firewall then to exceptions then to check file and printer sharing, look for checkmark appear on the printer host. Then Restart the printer host & all client machines. Sometimes if a computer is not plugged, windows file and printer sharing gets messed up.
