    Networking a printer

    Ok, so I've got the printer installed and working on this computer, but I also need it to work on another printer on the network. I've got the printer software installed on the other computer, and I am able to find the networked printer through the add printer wizard. But when I go to print something it doesn't work. The status screen comes up, pretty much like it would if it worked, but it doesn't print. What did i miss?

    do you have the printer shared? once it's shared you can go to run: \\computername to pull up the computer and it should list within there the printer, double-click on it and it should ask you to install the drivers and be able to use it.

    I've tried to get to a shared Windows printer with my mac, but no luck. I think mine is my model though, very old. You can add a printer on a windows comp. though. You go to Add Printer (somewhere in the Printer Preferences) and select more. There should be some drop down list that says Windows Printing, and you can browse around a network.

    I don't know all the details, but this is what I vaguely remember.
