    I finally got it working, using a different link, it turned out that windows was the cause of the problem that wasn't allowing us to print.. typical:p

    Thanks anyway

    Scroll down to the bottom of this link it has detailed instructions. Number 8 for the pc is the most important instruction that did it for me. http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=362447&highlight=print+to+vista

    there are many solutions but it's just choosing the right one that fits your situation !

    Hope that helps.

    P.S thanks to sammyman for forwarding the help, and whoever made the instructions ! :)

    I guess it's different for XP :(

    Anyone have any links for XP hooks ups? I don't see any windows printing under the mac printers, add more menu. It's a brother mfc 8460n all in one laser.
