I have a local printer setup on a computer on my network and I would like to be able to use that printer when printing from another computer on my network.  It is a local printer and not capable of being a network printer with an IP.

    Can you please specify:

    What operating system you are using?
    DO you have a domain controller or server client relationship?

    I am using suse 11.1.  I do not have a server setup.  I have two computers on a network.  Computer A and computer B.  Each computer has a local printer.  I would like computer A to be able to use its local printer as well as the printer on computer B.  Hope this helps.

    I might add, both computers use static IP addresses.  One is and the other is  I would like the .0.10 machine to have access to it's own printer as well as the printer on .0.11.
