Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

At the risk of helping the competition, I did a little research myself (2 minutes worth) and found the following link: http://www.windowsitpro.com/Article/ArticleID/39674/39674.html

I can sympathize with your consultant – it seemed like a no-brainer to me, but – I’d never actually tried it. Most of the Google searches for USB printer sharing refer to Macintosh solutions, but the one above seems to indicate that it can be done in a fairly straightforward manner – but not quite as simple as with a regular parallel port.
