Default HP iPAQ RW6815 - Wireless printing?

Hi all,

I own a HP iPAQ RW6815 PDA.

Now, I've got it all hooked up to my wireless network at home, I can browse the net etc, no problems at all.

However, I'm trying to fathom out how I can print from the PDA to one of my printers on my LAN. The printers are setup via simple sharing (you have to have the PC with the printer connected in order to print to it via another PC).

Does anyone know how I can achieve this? I've read the manual, I've looked on the net but I can't seem to get it to work.

I don't really know anything about pdas, but I know firewalls(windows, mcafee, norton) all have issues with sharing stuff, and you have to enable the windows file and printer sharing in the firewall settings specifically. It's kind of a hassle, and the menus are usually pretty well hidden, but once it's done, it's done.

I wish I could help more. The firewall thing is just a kink that I run into quite often.
