Windows 7 cannot print to shared printer on an XP computer

I have a Samsung CLP 310 printer connected to a usb port on an XP Computer.  I can print from 3 other XP printers with no problems.  I bought a computer with Windows 7.  The Win7 computer found and installed the printer.  I cannot print from the Windows 7 computer. I cannot change security settings and I cant change sharing properties from the Windows 7 computer.

 Hi,
 
 
1. What happpens when you try to print?
2. What happens when you change print settings?
 

Method 1:
I would suggest you to check for the firewall settings on your windows 7 computer and then check. You may have to change settings to allow a port to communicate if required. Refer the following links:
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/Open-a-port-in-Windows-Firewall
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/Allow-a-program-to-communicate-through-Windows-Firewall

Method 2:
Also I would suggest you to refer to the below provided link and check if the network for all the machines has been setup accordingly. Refer the following link.
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/help/sharing-files-and-printers-with-different-versions-of-windows
 
Also refer the following link:
Install a printer on a home network.
 
Hope this helps.
