Situation .My situation is that I have 4 printers (all usb connection) connected to my main windows machine.
I now wish to be able to print from another windows machine on the small network we have here.
I know that I can serve (have setup this ability up) the printers through windows to the other machine.
Having set them up to serve I thought I was set.
However I turned the other machine of and it seems to have lost the ability to see the machine.
Solved this problem by refreshing the access to the machine and re entering the password.
Question. Is it better, more efficient , just a better idea all round to get a stand alone "print server" for the 4 printers?
Thanks in advance for assistance or comments
