PrinterShare - Share your printer over the Internet

So, why would you want to share your printer over the Internet? To give your deadbeat friends access to your precious ink? No. But maybe you want to send a file to your home printer from another location. Or, if you can't figure out how to share a printer over a home network, sending the print job around the world so it prints in the next room is a solid workaround. From the web site:

"With PrinterShare® you can print documents and photos on other people's printers as easily as on the local one connected to your machine. No special technical knowledge is required from both - printer owner and user. It just works!

With our software you can print directly from your application such as Microsoft Word, Outlook, Photo Editor or any other program you work with to a printer connected to another computer next door or ten thousand miles away (anywhere!)."
