    It had not clicked with me that your printer had a network card. My set-up is simply the printer locally on the Win10 machine and the XP machine networked with the Win10 machine.

    I'm wondering if one could use the USB cable to plug directly into the Router?

    An idea to play with! But all is good now. Thanks for your help.

    Oscar.

    Thanks George.

    "Install printer software on both machines".

    Do you mean install as a local printer on both machines?

    Hi agri.

    Rather than sharing a printer through a computer have you considered attaching your printer directly to the router and making it a network printer? I believe your device has both a USB and Lan port.

    This would mean you could print from XP device without having to turn on the Windows 10 machine.

    You have to install the drivers for the OS on the machine that it is attached to. It is easier to just get a NAS or a router that allows you to plug a USB printer in or get a Wireless capable print server that you can have the printer communicate with the network.
