    Default share roland GX-24 on network

    hi, I'm tryng to share my roland GX-24 via print sharing from my PC to one other machine. The Roland only has 1 usb and a serial cable. I have it connected to my machine and have enabled sharing which states it is only available when my PC is on, this is fine.
    Problem is I cannot get it to show up on the other machine? Tried adding a printer and installed the driver on the target machine but I still can't see it?
    Can anyone help please? or is it easier to get a print server and plug it into the network?
    many thanks in advance

    If its enabled for sharing then you would see the printer if you went to \\{computername}\

    If you can't see it via that are you sure its enabled or that windows firewall is not blocking it?

    Can these be shared over a network?

    My colleague seems to think so, said they had it connected to two machines once. I'll try again in the morning
