How can I use my Windows networked printer from OSX?
Please register to disable this ad.
is the printer hooked up to the network, or to the windows computer?
anyway, read "share printers" at apple's promo page and then poke around in Print Center (which is in /Applications/Utilities):
Toshi's my hero!
ipods suck. :mumble:
Find out the printers IP address and install it using the IP.
Keep asking questions too, because the more you ask the more I learn about my new Mac.
If it's plugged in to the network you Mac should find it by itself, no IP address required.
its hooked up to the windows computer.......I'll poke around some more
http://www.macrumors.com would be a more helpful forum for this kind of problem. I had problems with my airport card and they answered the question in about 30 seconds. Turns out I wasn't pushing hard enough. The Apple support discussion pages might help too.
I had my Mac at work yesterday and I saw all of the printers on our Novell/Windows network.
Sys Preferences -> Printers and fax -> And I think there is a + button in that menu - click it and you should see all the printers on the network. These directions may not be completely accurate - I'm on my windows workstation at work today, and I'm trying to explain from memory, which is a little burned out at this point. The printers and fax menu is where I found the networked printers though.
By far the best site i've found for OS X tuning and figuring out is http://www.macosxhints.com/index.php
