i have 4 computers in my house. I have my powerbook g4, my girlfriends ibook g4, and two p4 desktops running win xp. My wireless network is running though my airport extreme base station, and I have my hp laser printer connected directly to the airport. The rendevous printing works great on the two macs, but doesnt work on the win xp systems.. I followed the instructions, and added a tcp/ip port,, and it just doesnt work...

any ideas?

I just did, but its sort of a different situation. IN that case, the printer was hooked up to the Xp pc. In my case, its hooked up to the router.. i tried what you said though, and it still didnt work
