Print to Mac-connected DeskJet 970 from Windows
Authored by: ebonit on Mar 04, '03 11:57:05AM

I had problems getting to print from my windows machines. Every time I send a print job I got a postscript error output....which made me wonder for some time since this is not a postscript printer.

Then I saw the light.

I had installed this printer on both my mac and my win2000 server. (i switched my usb cable between my mac and my server) Since I have more than one win box I shared this printer. So macosx saw this printer on the network when trying to install the CUPS printer. So instead of pointing to the physical printer it pointed to the shared windows printer.
As soon as I stopped printer sharing it saw my DESKJET970 and suddenly everything worked.

Me happy :D
