    When I first installed Parallels, I was able to access the printer on my wife's intel computer through the my LAN. I bought my wife a Mac and now I can't seem to see the printer that is attached to her bMac through the LAN. What am I missing? I have the printer drivers (for XP) loaded in Parallels, ut I can't see her Mac on My Network Places and can't find her printer. I have the printer sharing turned on and can access it through my Mac. I'm pretty sure I'm overlooking some setting in Parallels but don't know where to lok.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks in advance!

    What is your Network Adapter set to? I believe (and I might be wrong) that, like Bonjour, NetBIOS/NetBEUI -- what Windows networking uses -- cannot be routed, so if you are on a different subnet, you won't be able to "see" other Windows machines without using their IP address.

    Try setting your Network Adapter to Bridged Ethernet to see if that helps....
