Default Connecting to Printers via IIS?

Hi, I have recently installed IIS on my Windows XP computer and have discovered that you can access a local printer over the internet. This is ok if you have the name of the computer specified etc but I want to allow anyone to access it.

At the moment it comes up with "Printer Installation Failed, access is denied".

Thanks,
James.

When you say over the internet, do you mean in your house, or over the www
