Still having no joy...
Authored by: moffwilson on Aug 01, '03 08:58:20AM

Fantastically precise and clear instructions, so I must be doing something wrong. I've an Epson 1290s connected via USB to my WinXP PC (IP connected through an ethernet hub) and I've done everything it says above, but when I attempt to 'print away!' from my Mac it just disappears. If anyone is still reading this thread, I'd be most grateful for some help. Ta.

Your IP adress on your PC running XP should be (the same for the router adress on your Mac : TCP/IP - built-in ethernet - network - system preferences)(use DHCP there)
This way you can share the internet connection of your PC with your Mac (Do you know PPPshar Pro ?) and also share folders.
When following the instructions given by "anonymous" don't forget to start the TCP/IP print server on your PC (step 5) before clicking OK and closing the windows (step 6). This way it should work ...

Turn off the firewalls and see if it works.
