Almost working (Win98)
Authored by: jfg on Oct 29, '02 11:41:21PM

This most excellent and well written hint got me almost all the way there. But my PC is running Windows 98, so it would not accept an URL of the form:
http://192.168.1.2:631/printers/Stylus_C62
as a Window XP machine apparently does. Instead, I used:
\\\\Imac\\DESKJET_930C
where Imac is my rendezvous name and DESKJET_930C is the name of my printer.
It worked! Hallelujah!
(Note: these are backslash rather than division signs.)

I tried to write:
\\Imac\DESKJET_930C
with two backslashs before the Imac and one before the DESKJET_930C, but the preview garbled it. So I added more until the preview look correct. Now it goes back to the original in the actual comment.
Sorry, I've never posted anything before.
