Welcome to LinuxQuestions.

In a nutshell you need to configure the Pi to share the printer. You can do that using IPP or samba. samba is basically windows networking (SMB/CIFS) and IPP is the Internet Printer Protocol.

I have samba server (as home NAS) on pi, but haven't set up printer sharing on that. Will look on it. Thanks
