Per the attached instruction manual, there should be two or more interfaces for your printer. If it does not have the correct one you need, you can purchase and install that one. It also has an option to network the printer. Based on the "n" on your printer model it probably already has the network option. So you would setup the network parameters on the printer per the manual and your network (IP addressing model). Then you should be able to send jobs to the printer from either the PC or the Mac. You would have to install the appropriate drivers on each machine first.

Here is the manual link for your review. It is in a PDF format, so you would need ADOBE Reader on one of the machines. The Link is:

Good Luck

Hp 8000n is ghosting excess toner on prints. Why?

Perhaps, but first clean up the exposed parts of the printer where the toner may travel before it makes contact with the paper. Also, the fuser may need to be cleaned or replaced. Post your problem directly with HP on the HP website.

My HP LaserJet 8000N will not always print .pdfs.

8000N is older printer and likely has small amount of memory in comparision to newer units. If it prints basic small PDF fine but balks at printing larger jobs, that is likely the issue. Newer versions of Acrobat might also cause issues. Did you recently upgrade to reader 9 or 10?

Troubleshooting error message 79 00FE on LaserJet 8000N

Ok, I am a bit rusty with this printer as its been a while since I have worked on them. If memory serves me right, this error is related to the JetDirect Card. It may have to be replaced. I hope my memory serves me well. As I recall, this was a pain for me to find out as well. HP is usually good, but not always. I had to discover the problem on my own. Also, remove the card and reseat it! This has worked for me in the past as well. Perhaps you have another printer - same model. Remove its card and test it on the erroring printer.
