Using PowerPrint for Networks under OS X Network
I was researching the issue of using PowerPrint for Networks on OS X for a while, and found the answer on Since I looked for so long, I thought I'd post this here. Credit goes to Rob Crestani as shown on the original page. Essentially it boils down to this:
  1. Install GIMPPrint
  2. Select Option -> Add in Print Center.
  3. Select Advanced.
  4. Device: AppleTalkPAP
  5. Device-URL should be:

    pap://*/[AppleTalk Printer Name]/Printer_Adapter
    Where [AppleTalk Printer Name] is the name that appears under the Chooser in OS 9 when the PowerPrint device driver is selected (don't enter the brackets). The crucial part is Printer_Adapter, which selects the PowerPrint device.
  6. Printer model: my printer does HP LaserJet Emulation. This very common. Your mileage may vary.
Hope this helps.

Using PowerPrint for Networks under OS X
Authored by: dbrhett on Jun 29, '03 11:10:20AM

will this allow me to print from OS X to OS 9 on an ethernet network printer?

I have a beige G3 running OS 10.2.6 and am trying to print thru ethernet network to an Epson printer connected via usb hub on an iMac running OS 9.22.
OS 10 does not recognize the printer on the network.
