I have a canon pixma mp470se hooked up to my desktop with vista. can I share this printer with my laptop running XP? Using a netgear pc card to connect to desktop. Appreciate any help. Thanks.

sadly I still have not figured out how to share the printer to the laptop. Any suggestions?

I did not see the suggestions you posted, sorry. Let me give it a try and hope for the best. Thanks again.

I read the instructions, but my printer is on the desktop with Vista and the laptop is XP. The instructions showed how to connect a printer on XP to Vista laptop. Sorry if I am being difficult, i'm pretty new to this. Thanks again.

I see you have ticked Resolved - did you manage to sort it?

I managed to set it up on my laptop, but I can only print to it when the desktop is on. Is there anyway around that?
