Yes same in 2015 :)

 ;D Thanks.

@ blowtorch73

Look at esseboy's screenshot. Make sure you have it the same. Then, down below in Packet rules, click on System rules. Now look at my screenshot and enable "Allow Windows to share files and printers"

That is the setting I want you to tried. Cross fingers and toes ;)

Done! Will try printer now.

You still haven't answered the basic question. Is the laptop showing the printer as one of the option to print ???
If it is, print a test page and see if that works. If it does, make sure you select your printer as the device to print what ever you want it to print.

Bob, I am not getting the options window when I click on print. The window that comes up is one giving the choice to save or cancel.

Then your printer isn't assigned or available.
Solve your problem of setting up the printer first. Unless that's resolved, you'll never be able to print.

No, but the printer needs to be installed on the laptop. Actually your Laptop need to find the shared printer.

Can anyone tell me how to go about this given that the Epson XP-312 printer is shown in devices and printers? The real problem seems to be that when I click on print, the machine wants to create and save a pdf file.

A right click on the device brings up the following options:
 

You could also choose the Troubleshoot option if you can't get it assigned as the default.

The printer was not set as default but is now. However, when I click on print I still get the save (as PDF) or cancel option.
