!) connect printer a any PC on LAN
2) Go to control panel/printers and right click the printer icon and select sharing
3) Click the "share this printer" checkbox and give it a name
4) That is it, all other PCs on LAN access the printer remotely so you only need to setup the printer (drivers etc) on the PC that the printer is connected too
5) For other PCs to print, the PC with the printer connected to it must be on


1) Buy a printer server and connect the USB to the printe server.
