sorry for the noise, but forgot to tick the Server ability to broadcast connected printers...that should be ticked by default - home users are not so smart :-)
Comment 2 Tim Waugh 2015-11-02 04:37:33 EST
I don't think printer sharing should be enabled by default, as it could lead to inadvertent information leakage.
