I have two Win98 computers. They are connected to one hub and the hub is connected to one access to the internet, so now I can surf the web with both PC's, not just with one. This is working fine.
But now I have a printer in one of the PC's and I need to print from both printers. How can I do this? What do I have to configure?

Re: printers (W98)
Have you already enabled 'File and Printer Sharing' in the network protocols?
If you've got your network set up then just enable sharing of the printer by right clicking said printer (Start / Settings /Printers) go down to sharing and specify a name - this is on the computer with the printer attached.
On the other PC goto printers again and double click the 'Add Printers' icon, this starts a wizard where you can select a network printer. You may have to install the driver on this PC, but just follow the wizard for instructions.
If you haven't set up your network yet then just post back, someone with more experience will be able to help you (I've networked 2 XP-Pro and a 98 through a router, but to be honest still have no idea how!!! [img]/images/forums/icons/laugh.gif[/img])
If at first you don't succeed, then you probably shouldn't skydive!
