…and across town!
Free Windows/Mac/Linux peer-to-peer printer-sharing tool PrinterShare cuts out the network fiddling and router tweaking necessary to share a printer from, say, a Mac system at home to your Windows PC at work, although Vista systems require a UAC work-around for full two-way printing.
Vista killed the PC for me. I am staying with XP until I can afford to switch to Mac. Then there will be no looking back. I am sorry I ever left you, Mr. Jobs. I just never really liked that guy from Pepsi.
The PrinterShare system requires signing up each computer on your network and assigning it a name, but once you’re set up, sharing and accessing printers is truly simple. Files you send to be printed remotely are encrypted by default, and free accounts print, unfortunately, with a cover sheet that includes an ad.
For those trying to make connections between troublesome systems, PrinterShare might save some frustration. PrinterShare is a free download for Windows, Mac, and Linux systems.
