10.3: Print from Windows XP to a shared Mac printer
Authored by: markuswarren on Feb 16, '04 12:25:14PM

Very good hint that. I have one problem with it though, due to our setup, my machine happens to be on a different subnet than the PC with the printer, so Printer Setup does not list the printer :(

I have been playing around with the 'advanced' (option + Add Printer) options, and still cannot get it to work, even tried the IP address of the PC in the URI, but still no joy :(

10.3: Print from Windows XP to a shared Mac printer
Authored by: indigenous on Feb 17, '04 12:38:50PM

I also can't get this to work. I am using an old Snow Airport base station to share internat access. The printer is connected directly to a B&W G3. The G3 is connected directly to the Airport base station via ethernet and the PC running WinXP home is logged on to the wireless network. The Name for the G3 shows up in the dialog for adding a network printer, but the attached printer does not. I have a CUPS print driver installed and have WIndows sharing and Printer sharing turned on. Any ideas? DO I need to install any print drivers on the Windows side?

Thanks.
