Hi osu_nut,

The easiest way to do this would be to install Bonjour for Windows inside your virtual machine:

http://www.apple.com/support/downloads/bonjourforwindows.html

Then, enable Printer Sharing on your Mac in System Preferences -> Sharing.

As a last step, you may need to change your virtual machine network type from NAT to Bridged. (Look in the Virtual Machine -> Network menu.)

Good luck!
