networking - How to share printer - please help...!!!
Respected Tech Gurus,
Please help me with following:
There are two computers A and B (say).(They are in two adjacent rooms)
A has windows advanced server 2000 OS.
B has windows XP professional OS.
HP laserjet 3015 is connected to computer B.
Now I want to take printouts on Hp laser jet printer from Computer A also at times.
I understand that this requires networking.
However, I am NOT a very computer savvy person and therefore need help.
I have purchased CAT 5 cross over cable and Compex 8 port switch.
Also computer A has two NICs - one onboard Intel 865 and another extra Dlink.
Also computer B has one NIC.
Now please say me someone step by step how do i network the two computers so that I can:
1. share files
2. share printer
3. share internet connection
Please explain me step by step assuming that I have to do networking of my own and I have never done it before but ready to do it now.
Thanks and best regards
