HI

I have a question

I have a DELL 8100 running ME and a laptop i think with 2000 or 98.
I have a HP 6110 printer/fax/copier.
How can I set this up so both of the computers can use the same printer???

Help!

Much appreciated all

Dale

You need to set them up with a network connection between them. Then connect the printer to the desktop machine and share it over the network.

Well lets start off with if you have the right equipment. Do you have a Network Interface Card for each machine and a cat 5 crossover cable.

I would think so. We use something similar in our Network Labs at school but they are Parallel port versions. I kind of assumed you wanted to share a printer that was not in the same room. That is why I wanted to see if you had any network cards so that you could run a network cable to each and turn on Printer Sharing.

They are both (computers)in the same room with the one printer.
Would this work then?

Looks like it would?

Thxs for the help
