OS 10.1.5 Prints over IP
Authored by: ridleym on Aug 27, '02 02:42:06PM

The comment about 10.2 printing Appletalk over IP is correct however Apple alwas has been able to print over IP. It is not as nice of an interface but just add the IP address of the printer find a compatable driver, and you are ready to go. The one thing that may not work and does not work are the utilities that come with the printers, such as toner or ink levels and certain configurations.

NOw my delema , The one problem I have had wioh network printers and thier COMPATABILITY with Linksys DHCP routers "servers" is that they tend to be difficult to use when issueing a valid address to network printer. If anyone has a good suggestion on DHCP linksys routers and printers please let me know. I hava a caople of network printers that I do not want to go out and buy standonle print server hardware at 150 bucks a pop to print. So as of know I am using a SHAMEFULL windblows 2000 server as my print server. YUK! Please help!!!!

OS 10.1.5 Prints over IP
Authored by: stilesja on Aug 27, '02 04:54:43PM

I have the same setup with the Linksys Router, but I have an iMac G4 that I want to leave my Lexmark z55 printer connected to and my IBM thinkpad that I use for work has wireless. I would like to be able to share the printer on the Mac and print to it from my Thinkpad runnning win2k. The only way I believe to do this would be through windows networking sharing, right?

I know I couldn't do this in 10.1.5 but does 10.2 change anything?
