Printing to IBM Network printers.
Authored by: MattInOz on Jan 29, '03 07:50:13AM

I can't understand what the intial problem was. I have always connected to IBM network printers using IP printing, with queue name PASS. The only difference is that I would use the correct PPD file for the printer, instead of generic. The big problem in versions of OS X before 10.2 was that it wanted to call the queue PASS. I used to work at IBM Global Services where I had both a Mac and a Windows NT machine on my desk, like others at our site. We had to print from either. I only ever used the Windows NT machine for filling in my timesheet. It was too slow, compared to my Mac. I still have the PPDs for the InfoPrint 20 PS, as well as 32 and 40.

Thank you for this!!!

I recently had to setup a g4 running OS X 10.3 for a non-profit org and they have an IBM Infoprint 20 (as I do) and under classic it printed fine. I thought to do a test and see if there was anyway to enable it printing under OS X but did a google and found this.

PASS did the trick!!!

As a result I have signed up and hope to get my next problem solved!!
