I am using SSH (Putty) to connect my Windows XP machine to my Linux box which is behind a router. On my Linux box, I am connected to network printer (also behind the router with its own separate IP address). I would like to be able to install the printer on my windows machine via my Linux box and SSH so that I do not have to open the printer to the world. How do I go about sharing the printer so that I can do this?

You can use Samba to share a printer from Linux to Windows. SMB HOWTO: Sharing A Linux Printer With Windows Machines

I don't know of any way to share it over SSH.
