Is the BravoSE networkable?
If you have an Autoprinter or would like to print only over the network, it is possible to share a printer as long as the host computer AND the client computer are Windows XP Professional. It will not work if the client OR the host computer are Windows Vista/7/8/Vista. It is not possible to setup a shared printer on a Windows XP Home computer.
Currently you are NOT able to burn data over the network with the Bravo SE. If you are looking for a unit that has that capability, please visit www.primerastore.com.
Use the instructions below to setup windows printer sharing on Windows XP Professional:
1. Share the Printer. Go to Start - Control Panel - Printers and Faxes - Right Click on Disc Publisher SE - Choose Properties - Click the Sharing Tab. Select "Share this Printer". Choose a Share Name. Check the List in directory box.
2. Give Rights. After installing the Disc Publisher driver, the administrator must open the Printers Folder, right-click on ‘Disc Publisher' click Properties, and click on the Security* tab.

3. Add the Printer on a Network Computer.
