    There are three parts to your one question:
    1. Can you share a printer from XP to win8? Jerry has answered that.
    2. How to stop the XP from connecting to the internet? As usual, HowToGeek has an answer at http://discuss.howtogeek.com/t/restr...work-only/7978
    3. What driver will you use on the win8 computer for the shared printer? That will be the hard part because you will encounter the same problem that you had trying to connect it locally.
