    I networked my mac to my PC.
    Now I just want to know how I share the printer with my PC, (all is done on the PC side (i have allowed printer sharing)
    I got no idea what to do on the mac.

    Anyone help me out??

    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:

    n dhcp instead of having it say obtain address automatically, set it statically to waht you want.

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