remote printing problem

I have installed Slack 14 an want to use a printer on a Slack 13.37 box. On the slack 14 box all the printers on the 13.37 box are listed. But, I can't do anything. clicking on the printer times out. Try to print and the printer is listed, but I get "Location Unknown getting printer information failed'.

How can location be unknown if it "see's" the printers in the remote system?
