Adding a network printer *to* a Win 7 machine is pretty much intuitive IF you know where things are as it'll prompt you, go find the printer and add it IF there are drivers available. Unfortunately all of my printers, scanners, and other legacy equipment are on Quad Core machines using XP Pro. Meaning I need to connect the Win 7 machine to the printer on the XP machine. Moving the printer to the Win 7 machine would be a problem as that machine also runs XP a good portion of the time. I'd also have to reconfigure the printer on each OS on all of the other machines. Of course printing from XP to XP is no problem. I run XP Pro, Win 7, and several flavors of LINUX across the network, but XP will remain the dominant OS on the network due to lack of legacy drivers for Win 7.
So, how do I set up a Win 7 machine to use a network printer on an XP machine? That one has me completely at a loss. I know I could move the printer to a Win 7 machine, but then I'm looking at up to a couple of days for reconfiguring the other machines on the network.
