Hey everyone,

Very frustrating problem. I have an HP LaserJet 1012 hooked up to my wife's computer (Windows XP), and want to print to it from my PowerBook without having to switch the USB cable from one computer to the other, so printing using sharing would be ideal. It doesn't seem to work though. I go into Printer Setup Utility, click Add, More Printers, I have Windows Printing selected, it has my Workgroup, but no computers are displayed. I even tried sharing a printer from my Windows 2003 Server machine, but it doesn't show up on the list either. This has me confused, because a co-worker of mine shared his printer on his PC at work and his Mac instantly found it. Not really sure what I'm doing wrong. Thought maybe it was the Windows Firewall at first, but it's been turned off and still no go. Any help would be GREATLTY appreciated. Thanks!
