For the love of Pete.............WHY would you have to have the windows
firewall enabled to share a printer on a server 2008r2 server!?!?!?!

I really don't believe that is the case. I've got 2 Win2K8R2 print
'servers' and neither have the firewall enabled for any network profile.

So my response to unsigned's comment is...

We have a wk8r2 server here, tried to install a generic text only
printer for receipts, the printer installs fine, but cannot share it
out like it needs to be.
