    I was reviewing my WiFi connections and noticed under "Devices" an open "print server" (See attachment). Am I picking up someones server? Can they access my computer via WiFi even though I have it password protected?

    What's going on here. Any info is appreciated.

    That's a wifi printer in devices I think...It certainly can't access your Mac, it might even be yours depending on how it's set up, but more likely a Printer in the area...I've noticed that the newer Airprint models have high gain wifi...My Epson has a powerful wifi signal also.

    I don't have a printer so I'm assuming its picking up one of the neighbors.
    Thanks for your time.

    Print Random Stuff to it.

    Could be great Fun to Troll the Printer
