    I have searched and found nothing significant.

    how do i share a printer on a windows machine to a mac machine (or two). I do not have a clue as i can probably bet my bank account on apple and windows not using the same protocol.

    If the printer has a driver for mac, you should be able to set up CUPS printer sharing on the PC, and the mac should recognize this.. I have never tried it, but it should work.
