10.3: Share a Panther printer with OS 9
Authored by: BMarsh on Mar 17, '04 10:42:26PM

If you could setup a LPR Server (or LPD maybe) it would then work. Then you could print from the Mac OS X mac to it. Even then you may need to pre-process the file on the mac so it sends a file the printer can handle, instead of a postscript file.

Mac OS 9 was just never made to do half of the things that Mac OS X is, and they continue to improve and add new features. And it's network printing was really only meant for postscript style printing.
