I have a Mac OS X with 2 USB printers attached. The 'file sharing' & 'printer sharing' has been enabled, and are able to view the files from a PC after authenticating using one of the user accounts on the Mac. I am able to view the files from the PC but the printers are not shown at all. Can anybody help??!

Are you running panther?

You need to be on Panther for this to work I believe.

You need to add the printer in Windows using a network address such as:

smb://yourMacsIP/printername.

I am at work right now and not near my setup. If no one answers by the time I get home this evening. I'll double check my setup and letcha know!
