    Sharing my printer


    What program can I use share my printer? I have one computer on wireless and it cant see the printer that is hooked up to this computer. I do have this computer sharing it as network printer. I just have a feeling there is more to it than this. Where do I start?

    first, make sure the computer is contacted by issuing a ping command (i guess they are already connected)

    then use smbclient to connect to the shared printer, howto like this teaches how to connect to a windows printer

    hope this helps
