Hi,

I am trying to Print to my Powerbook using bonjour, with the printer connected to a WIN XP machine. I downloaded WIN Bonjour and installed it, but it seems as if this is more for people who have the printer connected to the MAC. Is there a way that I can keep my printer connected to my PC, and print on my MAC?

I should mention that I have a CANON i560 and that Canon's drivers for the MAC don't seem to work for the printer. I print over the network and the text is shrunk, which is a driver issue. Is there any way to make Bonjour work with my PC?

    No you can't use Bonjour and the usual process won't work with the Canon drivers.

    However the Canon drivers usually don't work across a network in this way.

    It should work with the PrintFab Drivers (but these cost).

    Any other
    drivers that I can use that are free for a
    Canoni560???


    No.

    Only other option is to sell the printer and get another one has drivers which can allow the printer to be shared.
