Question about Brother Office Equipment & Supplies
I have 2 computers which share a KVM Switch. This means that only 1 computer at a time can be run, never both together as they use the same keyboard, mouse and monitor. Both can't be on at the same time. I have a USB Brother printer and I want to hook it up to both computers so whichever on is on, that computer can use it. The only thing I can think of at the moment is to keep unplugging it from one computer to another. Is there another way of doing it?
You need a USB printer share device such as this one http://www.amazon.com/IOGEAR-2-Port-Printer-Sharing-GUB211/dp/B001SEB45M/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1328912939&sr=8-1

Because printers and networks vary, the best instructions for setting up and networking your printer should be in its users manual. Also, your network-ready printer may have come with installation software that can help you share the printer over the network.
There are three main steps you need to take when networking a printer, including the following: Enable the File And Printer Sharing setting, Make the printer available to all users, and Direct PCs to the printer.
