    So I thought everything was suppose to be easy on a mac. I guess I just need to give up.

    What I want to do.

    Mac mini - directly connected to usb hp printer.

    I want to share the printer and print to it from a windows based laptop or my mac book either/or.

    The printer does work connected to the mac mini. I did share it in system preferences and I also went to sharing icon in preferences and clicked printer sharing there to.

    I then go to pc and do add printer- network printer- browse- and it finds my mac but doesn't find the printer. Windows firewall is turned off and it is connected to network and working. HELP.:confused:
