Wampserver works but what can I do with it?

Can I install programs on it and run them from anywhere?

My goal is the create a network where I can print to remote printer. Sounds simple enough. Except I have no background in this area at all. I found Wampserver and installed it properly. I can access my home page from a remote location following their instructions. Great. Now I have no idea what to do with it.

Is this the start of my network setup or am I off in the wrong direction? If it's the start, can someone suggest resources for what to study or do next?

Thanks.

Wampserver is usually used by web developers so they can run Apache on their computer without uploading to a live server.

What did you want to do with it?

I want to have 2 computers that can work on the same programs with the same data. I would like to print shipping labels and invoices, packing slips from a HQ office location into the shipping location elsewhere.

And why do you think Wamp is the best product to do that particular task? Is there a program that runs on Apache that does this?

I would have thought there would be an easier way.

Hi Billy, I don't know if Wampserver is what I need. That is exactly what I am asking. I have never networked 2 computers and I'm trying to figure out the easiest and least expensive way.
