If I have 3 computers....1 XP and 2 Macs, and I want to put a single inkjet on the network, then I know I need a USB print server. <br><br>Here's my question...how does that work with the drivers? Do the (in this case) Canon drivers have to support network printing, or does it even matter?<br><br>
Printer sharing is no problem...it's just a hassle to have to keep the computer the printer is plugged into on and awake all the time, hence the desire for a printer server. <br><br>Thanks for the response. <br><br>

Bonjour for Windows.<br><br>If it's not a postscript printer, you'll have to jump through a couple of hoops to get it to work.<br><br>First install the Canon printer drivers. Next, under the Bonjour Printer Wizard, when you go to add a printer, you should see the one being shared from your Mac (make sure Windows Sharing is also turned on and the Firewall allows Windows Sharing). Select your printer, click Next and and choose Canon and your model number and then click Next again. Then click Finish. <br><br>Now, go to Start>Settings>Printers and Faxes and right-click on the printer and select Properties. Click the Advanced tab and then click New Driver. Select Apple>Color LaserWriter 12/600, then Next and then Finish. Hopefully, it will work now. <br><br>
