Hello I have a MacBook running 10.5.8 trying to share a printer with Vista. I can see the Mac from the PC but cannot see the PC from the mac nor access the printer. I have enabled sharing on both and read every article this side of China but nothing works. The PC operates through a Belkin Pre N wireless router and the Printer is a Kodak 5500 AiO.
The printer is on the PC.
On the Mac:
I have tried to use the URL:// nothing
tried windows Nothing.
tried smb://username:password@workgroup/computer/printer. Nothing.
Wish the printer would show up when I select windows from the Print & Fax but still noting. Sure hope someone has an idea I haven't run across.
QUOTE Thanks
