Sharing Printer

Is there anyway for me to hook 2 computers to one printer? I have both computers hooked up to my cable modem and I have it where I can share the printer, but I have to turn off Zonealarm on both computers each time I want to print.
I didn't know if there was a way around this. I am running Windows ME on both computers. And both have a usb port.

Thanks for any help.

Easy, open Zone Alarm and goto Security. Change your Local Zone security to Low. You have nothing to worry about in your local zone since both PCs are operated by you, unless you plan to hack your other pc by yourself

goto Security --> Advanced --> Restricted Zone
I think you have the other computer in the restricted zone list
