I'm trying to share a printer from my new iMac with my wife's PC which is running Windows Vista Home Basic i have followed this howto and when I select the printer in the wizard i get the error message "Windows cannot connect to the printer. Make sure that you have typed the name correctly. and that the printer is connected to the network"

I can't seem to figure out what the problem is so I would appreciate any help


not sure if this is the right solution or nut but I ended up installing Bonjour for windows which let me set up the printer I have only tested small text docs at this point I just hope it works for other more complicated items

I am still interested in hearing other solutions that don't involve bonjour

thanks again
