    On my Windows 7 box I have a USB printer attached. I have chosen to share the printer. I then went into my Snow Leopard 10.6.4 iMac and tried to add the printer. It saw it but I decided to cancel it. I went back two minutes later in the Windows area of the Add Printer screen and I was not able to view the networked printer. I rebooted both computers and still no recognition of the network nor the printer.

    When I go into Finder > Connect to Server I can connect to the Windows 7 machine.

    What can I do so I can see the printer on the Mac? Thanks
