I have a PC that connects to my Epson printer via USB. I also have a MacBook and I want to know what I need to do in order to get it to print on my printer.

Do I need a printer server or what?

Thanks for the help.

You do not *require* a printer server.  Assuming both the PC & Mac are on the same network (wired or wireless) you can simply follow this guide: http://macs.about.com/od/macwindows/ss/sharewinprinter.htm

It's a walkthru on sharing the printer on your PC and getting the Mac to connect to it.

Thanks guys, I'll give it try and let you know before I close it. I am not a Mac user so this is rather new to me.
