Printer Setup

Postby skoash » 12. Jan 2009, 02:42

Has anyone setup a wireless networked printer to be used in XP Guest OS.

I have a Mac host that uses a printer connected wirelessly to an XP desktop. I have installed virtual box on the mac notebook and run XP as a guest on the notebook but can't get the printer working.

I can get it to recognize the network but it can't find the printer.

Any help would be appreciated

Sorry for the post I figured it out - Just created a new/different wireless network between the guest os and my printer (seperate from my mac network) and I can now print

May I ask how you did it? I tried a few iterations of what I thought you meant to no avail.

Cheers.
