    I print to a canon i250 printer which is hooked up to a Windows XP box.

    Because it uses its own special software, as opposed to the windows built in printing status monitor, the pre-exsisting drivers with Mac OS X don't work, but those of printfab do, the problem is, my trial has expired and I'm too cheap to buy it :p

    Does anyone know either a free alternative to Printfab or another way of getting my printer to work?

    don't all printer companies put their drivers for windows and macs on their site?

    Yes, but the canon drivers don't work properly :\

    The drivers work for USB, but no when its shared over the network for some reason.

    Have you tried sharing the other direction?
