Print to Mac-connected DeskJet 970 (Canon S520) from Windows
Authored by: philipshambrook on Mar 19, '03 01:33:00AM

I've been trying to share a Canon S520 on an iMAC G4 800 with a Windows ME system for the past couple of days and had little joy until I came across this hint. I followed all the steps diligently but when I connected the Win ME system there was a message that the printer was off-line. I was able to see through to Cups on the Mac from Windows using Internet Explorer with so the intranet appeared all right. I tried many things until in a fit of desperation I tried connecting with \\server\printersharename. Voila! It works.

Many thanks for the main body of the hint as without it there is little doubt that I would still be floundering and my wife would be very unhappy.
