More on printing to a Win XP shared printer
Authored by: DavidOh on Nov 06, '03 12:41:59AM

Well, just made the switch to Panther from XP and was having a h*** of a time trying to get my DeskJet 970Cse to print from my XP server in my home network.

I tried everything I could find (and there's not much) on the net and came across this solution. I loved it for its simplicity and elegance (other solutions had me mucking around in Panther's FreeBSD core).

Still didn't work. After spending 6 hours on this problem, I finally got it to work.

How? I got rid of the spaces in the share name in XP. Now I can see my printer using Windows Printing whereas before I could not.

A very "Windows" type solution to my "Windows" with Mac problem :-)

Hope this helps someone out there.
