Printing from LAN'ed pc stopped working

I have 2 PC's, both running WIN2k, networked with a Linksys router. I have been able to print to PC-#1's printer from PC-#2, but today it stopped working. When I try to print from PC-#2, I get the error message "the RPC server is unavailable".

Any ideas on how to get this working again?

Thanks in advance.

I figured it out - it has something to do with ZoneAlarm. When I disabled ZoneAlarm on the PC's printing worked again.

I installed an update on both PC's this morning - it must have changed something. Now I just have to expirement to find out what was changed in ZA.

Problem was that the IP address for the remote PC changed, and I had to modify it in ZA on PC-#1.
