I have a USB printer attached to a Windows 7 PC in the office and want to be able to print to it from my MBP (10.7).

All the computers are connected to the same WiFi network. So I have tried adding it as an LPD printer and also as a Windows printer via spoolss. I have had a look on a few other forums and had a look on the apple communities threads but for the life of me I cannot get it to work.

So any help or ideas at all would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you

if it fails im running out of ideas...

One thing might be that perhaps epson are not installing a CUPS printer driver on your mac by default.

You might have to try Gutenprint, which has open source CUPS drivers for OS X & the Epson TX400
http://gimp-print.sourceforge.net/

Then try the os X printer install

And use the CUPS driver.
