I would suggest redesign of the entire network, fun way to learn
Change workgroup to Office
Change machine names
Server = Server
PC1=PC1
PC2=PC2
IP Ranges the same (192.168.168.1-x)
File and Printer sharing enabled
Disable Simple File Sharing
Delete Shared printer off workstations
Reshare printer on server with a better name
Run Command \\Server [Enter] (From PC1 and PC2)
Remap the Printer on Workstations
Great Success - and Profit !
