    Ive got a windows XP sp2 machine and a mac OSX (10.2 i think) connected through a D-LINK router via cat5 cable. I also have a server (windows 2000 advanced server edition) connected.

    I have an EPSON Stylus CX5400 printer (printer/scanner/copier) hooked up to my XP machine via USB.

    I am at a loss on how to be able to print from the macintosh to my printer, when my computer is on of course.

    On my server I have PCMACLAN installed with appletalk protocols and stuff, and I am able to print from there to my printer.

    If there isnt a way to directly connect to my printer from the mac, is there a way to connect via appletalk or something on the server and then have it forword the "message" over to my computer to print.

    I dont NEED the scanner funcionality on the mac, though it would nice, if theres a way (which I doubt).

    I would also like to stay away from print servers.. not in the mood for spending money and I would loose some funcionality.

    Any help is greatly appreciated!
