I am waiting fro Tim's response but I am sure that what he said is not
true if you have the cooperation of the manager of the system with the
printer. I have four computers in my house (5 really but one is not
involved) . One is a print server and one has a local printer. This
second machine can print and see its local printer as well as the
printers from the print server. The other machines can not see the local
printer on that machine.
