You could tell them the printer is broken and they will have to use a different printer.
If that doesn't work, you will need to setup samba file and printer sharing on your system. There are more than a few posts on this forum about that subject.

LinuxPrinting says the printer works: with HPIJS drive (included in most distribution). You'd need also to install CUPS (to handle the printer and its queue) and Samba (to share it with Windows) to share it with Windows clients. The programs are also in all distributions.
