iPhone -- network printer

I have some new $3,000+ SHARP MX-M283N PCL6 copy machines, but they don't have an AirPrint/etc driver I can install on my iPhone.

My iPhone is connected to the corp network, how can I printer to the corp printer ?

Does the corp network have a print server to install "WePrint" on?

Free and easy solution:  Just install the airprint driver on a PC, and designate the printer as a shared printer on the PC.  Make sure to enable the "guest" account on the PC.  

Caveat is you'll only be able to print from the iPhone/iPad if that PC is running and connected to the network.

A fine set of instructions here:
