I have two stand alone comps, both of them have the soft ware installed to run this one printer and they both can. I would like to know if there is some sort of a splitter cable that would allow both comps to be able to have access to it at the same time, or would this fry something?

Please help?

PS:Both computers want to have little paper childern with one computer. Will it start a war between two friends? You will have to wait and see. Please tune in tomarrow for the conclusion of this odd love triangle.

or you can get a parallel auto share switch so then you can use one printer on two computers
