Mac to PC

Recommended Posts

Situation: You are using a desktop sharing program between a MAC and a remote windows-based PC.

 

Does anyone know of a software program (free is better) that allows you to print a document from the remote PC (such as a report from a database) to the printer that is connected to your MAC? Preferably not a hosted program.

No, and I wish I did! I end up having to forward it to myself and print it that way. Although, I find it funny that when I'm on my client's remote desktop and hit print - it prints at his house - and he's 900 miles away!

 

I HAVE ULTIMATE POWER!!! BWAH HA HA!!

Logmein Pro allows you to print remotely, although I have found that .pdf files do not print, so I have to email those to myself. It isn't free, but it does have a free trial, and if you hold out on purchasing the pro version once the trial expires, they'll send a discount coupon.

I second Logmein Pro, there is a free version of logmein but I don't believe it allows you the ability to print. Logmein is a very reliable program and I have used it for fortune 500 companies when I used to be an IT slave, I highly suggest it.

You can try setting up the printer using Google Cloud Print.
