Printing from Win2k to OS 10.2 Mac USB printer
Authored by: tedlandis on Nov 03, '02 02:13:41PM

What worked for me was to NOT change the file: definition in the existing Printer definition but rather to add a new printer for Windows printing only from the http://localhost:631/printers screen in the browser.

So I have two printer definitions pointing to the same printer one with
device = file://dev/null
for printing from the Mac

and one with
device = usb://HEWLETT-PACKARD/DESKJET%20930C?serial=xxxxxx
for printing from Windows.

Also for the Windows printer just select "raw" as the "Make" since the Windows drivers already format the output for you.

This hint still works (and is apparently still required) for Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger.

Only change is that mime.convs and mime.types already have the raw application octe-stream enabled.
