print sharing mac leopard to xp

  jdsa 23:20 27 Dec 2007

Please can you help. Im trying to set up wireless print share for a network group of pc,s with a mac as the wired connection to the printers and the modem. Im using an Orange livebox (inventel) wireless modem and router. I've followed all the wizards known to man but to no avail. I can see the pc,s from the mack and can ping them but cannot see the mac from the pc,s. The firewall is set to allow connections on both systems, Im sure this is do-able but Im just getting lost somewhere. P.s I formally did have this setup running on an all pc basis no problems. so to clarify the setup it's mac/printers-ethernet cable-router/modem-wireless-other pc,s. Hope you can help.

Cheers all, found the little critter, it was an over active norton firewall, I have to specify the ip address of the mac to the firewall and tell it to allow access. but anyway all sorted, thanks again.
