When you want to print, select File > Page set up and the networked printer should show. Click Print and it should work.

G'day CSA, I have the same network setup but could only successfully print from my PC to the printer when it was attached to my iMac and not the other way around! I found some info which might help you some:

not that I know of. If you're that concerned, just frequently change your passwords.
