  • SharonJohn's suggestion worked for me, but a word of warning.
    You must have the shared printer on the Windows 7 machine as a single name with no spaces. Otherwise if there is a space between words in the printer name the Macintosh 'Add Printer' will have the 'Add' button un-highlighted. I had to go in and add a new printer for my Samsung SCX-4500 printer and call it just 'Samsung'. Of course then the other Windows machines on the network all had to get this 'new' printer added and the old one deleted.

  • Can anyone tell me how to set up LPD services on XP Home and XP Pro?  I have the same problem with my two XP machines and a new iMac I bought--I can share files, but not the printers on my XP boxes.

  • I really don’t know much about this scam thing and at the same time , no one wants to be on the losing side . But i just came across a good hacker who helped me hack my boyfriends text messages, whatsapp, Facebook, Instagram messages remotely..You don’t have to touch his phone while you have access to his conversations through the software he bought and install remotely on my phone, i dont know how he did this but i think he's perfect at it.....contact him at jonnycyberghost@gmail.com..Tell him Allinson referred you, then you can thank me later. God Bless.
