    i know i know... its probably been discussed before but i couldnt find a thread that answered my specific question.


    im on a mac at work... i can share files with a pc in other room... through network... so there are networked.

    but how can i share the printer being used on the pc? i need to get this taken care of.

    i got the IP addy for the name part ... (added printer).. but what do i put for the location part? one can bring this menu up when in the printer list and asking for info on the printer selected or being used... you know what im talking about.
    thnx.

    Don't Need a Location

    I've got a similar setup at work (I'm one of the few Macs on a Windows domain), and as long as I know the IP address, I can just leave the location blank. Have you tried printing while leaving the location blank?
