More on printing to a Win XP shared printer
Authored by: pbookg4 on Oct 17, '03 01:28:13AM

I probably screwed up some network setting but everything follows up except the printer won't print. It is in queue under winxp so its received the document but the printer won't print. I have a hp deskjet 940c. So i chose the 900 series driver. Anybody have any ideas what im doing wrong. Also will the new OS X panther
coming out this month have cups support installed?

Well, I'm running Panther and this didn't work for me. The printer job said it was printing - I even saw the percentage meter go all the way to 100% but then it suddenly said "printer jobs stopped". When I clicked "start", it did the same thing.

I'm going to try some of the other hints on this site...

I have the same setup with Panther and HP940c.
I followed the instructions and got the printing flowing successfully. What I must say is that network printing from the Panther machine to the XP machine produces dramatically inferior printout than direct to USB 940c from panther from Adobe Illustrator. I cannot use this nice network setup because of this. I made many tests with multiple print settings.
