So I was able to share the printer on my Windows 7 desktop with my Mac running OSX 10.4 The problem is that it will take forever to send the file to my printer to print. Not only that, but even small files won't print at all. I'm wondering what's wrong. I connected them by putting my Windows 7 IP and printer name on the advanced options of my MAC add a printer option. Am I missing something? Any help will be appreciated. ^_^

It is easier to enable and use the LPD/LPR service on Windows 7 than using "Windows "Printing."
