    Hi guys. Does anyone know if it's possible to print from an iPhone that is attached to a PC on my network.
    The printer is shared but my iPhone 4 can't see it.

    HP also makes an app for the iPhone and Andriod phones to print to their printers.

    Thanks Zac. The links are for programs that send your material to be processed rather than actually print. Looks like I’ll need to keep looking
    Thanks anyway.

    It's actually ver easy. There are two methods,

    1. use Air-Print..but it's limited to very specific printers. here's a list of the supported printers.
    http://www.apple.com/ipad/features/airprint.html

    if it's not on this list, it's probably not going to show up on the iphone.

    2. use a third-party app. there are ALOT of these apps, but I know a specific one that supports all wireless printers. http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/print-n-share-for-advanced/id301656026?mt=8

    this app works for all printers (atleast all the ones I have tried have worked). it is paid however, but it works for all kind of devices including ipad. You might want to use installous if you are looking for it for free.
