I'm still not sure I'm clear on this:
You moved the Epson to a different terminal - call it T2
You connected via USB, installed the printer software on T2 and shared the printer. (T2 has file and printer sharing enabled in Network properties).
Does the printer print a test page at this point?
You go to a terminal without a printer - call it T3 and use the 'Add Printer' wizard.
You install a network printer and choose from the devices shown.
Is the printer on T2 shown?
You select the Epson on T2 and the Wizard loads the drivers for it.
Now you have 'Epson on T2' listed in the printers window of T3.
Right click on this entry and set it as the default printer.
You open a Word document, select Print from the File menu and in the pull down menu choose 'Epson on T2' as your printer (if it's not already there) and press Ok.
The print dialog closes, there a no error messages.
Are the above steps accurate? What is shown in the spooler for 'Epson on T2' - double click it in the printers window and it shows you a list of print jobs waiting.
