Sharing a printer - I can`t find it !!!!

  bubbles2 16:11 10 Sep 2003

I have recently set up my wireless network between 1 PC and 1 ibook,I can access all the shared documents etc but cannot share the printer.

I have followed all the instruction regarding sharing the printer on the PC (XP) and have enabled sharing etc.

I cannot work out how to add the printer which is connected to the PC to my ibook - I have followed the add printer instructions but it doesn`t show up.

I know I must be overlooking something but being new to all this don`t really have a clue where to start.

I know the printer is set up for my ibook as i can connect it via usb and it works perfectly.

So any ideas ??? very simple terms please.

The printer is definately compatible as I can connect it by USB and print things off.
I was under the impression that I could just share the printer.Where would the print server be connected to - the printer or the router.

Like I said this is all new to me :)
