    Our office recently acquired a brand new Canon photocopier, annoying it doesn't support mac (no drivers). Someone told me I could set up a printing server on Windows, do you have any idea what kind of software I need? thanks.

    What do you want it to accomplish? Print sharing? It won't mean much if there isn't any drivers for OSX.

    I've heard of softwares that act like a dropbox on a windows machine that prints whatever documents being dropped into it.

    I found the software that does exactly what I need :) fancy the moderators think it's basic help that I need, it turns out a bit more complicated. You need to set up a script that will monitor the folder and print whenever theres a new file.
