Printer Sharing

Printer sharing is for people (or offices) with more than one Mac, connected to a network (Chapter 13), who’d rather not buy a separate printer for each machine. Instead, you connect the printer to one Mac, flip a couple of software switches, and then boom: The other Macs on the network can send their printouts to the printer without actually being attached to it—even wirelessly, if they’re on an AirPort network.

Frequently Asked Question: Scanning: The Opposite of Printing

Will my scanner work with Mac OS X?

These days, the odds are pretty good.

For the first couple years A.M. (After Mac OS X), scanning was a sore spot for Mac fans. Precious few scanners worked with Mac OS X even a year after its release.

These days, Mac OS X recognizes almost any Epson scanner and any scanner that works with the so-called TWAIN scanning standard (which, if you can believe it, stands for Technology Without An Interesting Name). As noted in Scanning, you can use Mac OS X’s Image Capture program to operate such scanners without even installing any software.
