Having just set up a three-PC XP Home workgroup, and enabled file and printer sharing, I was surprised to find that, wven though I hadn't shared the printers, they were visible to each PC (well, more or less).
Would one expect a difference in this behaviour between:
- real networked printers, i.e. those with a network interface card (like JetDirect) installed, and
- the situation where each printer was attached to its own PC by a USB or parallel-printer cable (this was the workgroup situation)?
