Many thanks for your help. I think I'll find another way to connect
the printer so that's accessible to all my machines.

One way is to install the lpr component in Windows. You will also need
to install a postscript printer driver. I don't have any Windows machine
here so I can't guide you through. Search the web for lpr and your
Windows version.


Thanks, Charles. Windows is on a dual boot laptop, so it's not very practical
to have it always on, with a printer hanging off it. That's why I was looking
for a solution that covered Windows > Linux > printer.

I'm currently looking at getting a router with a dedicated USB printer port.
