Configure the printer on the system it's connected to, then share it.

This has already been covered on askubuntu before:

What is a CUPS server and how to share a printer over a network

Also there's a community wiki document on how to share a printer on Ubuntu, and how to connect to printers shared from other OSes from Ubuntu : https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Printers#Sharing_Printers.
