I am using a HP Businessjet 2280 printerwith a JetDirect network card hard wired to a 3com Office Connect wireless router. All other machines connect and interconnect wirelessly through the router to the printer and net. I believe this is a peer to peer configuration.
My question is, does printer 'sharing' need to be selected in this configuration? I don't think so as it seems to me that the printer is 'standalone', all machines that access the printer are loaded with the printer driver. Interestingly, all articles I have read appear to suggest whatever the network configuration, printer sharing requires to be selected.
I ask the question simply to understand the subject and woiuld appreciate your guidance.
