I have 8 computers running Windows XP that need to share one printer. I already have all 8 computers sharing a high-speed Internet connection. I've been told that I can't have more than 5, XP computers share a printer, but I need to know for sure since I can't get a straight answer from Microsoft. I am using a Brother HL-1440 printer. I have the installation CD for the printer driver and software.
I need to know if I can do this using printer sharing or if I need a print server. If it can be done via printer sharing, I need **EXACT** instructions on how to do it. If I need a print server, I need **EXACT** instructions on how do to that.
This should be very quick and easy money for someone who knows what they're doing.
