10.3: Share a Panther printer with OS 9
Authored by: article7 on Mar 22, '04 12:55:30PM

This feature seems to have broken following the upgrade to 10.3.3 -- I now get an error on the OS9 machine whenever trying to print. The error message states that the printer cannot be found, and concludes with the number "-8885".

Looking at lpstat, the printer name hasn't changed, and I haven't changed the IP address of the OS X machine. Printing directly from OS X is fine.

Any tips would be deeply appreciated!

I can confirm this stopped working when I upgraded from os 10.3.2 to 10.3.3 arg! It seems the unix lpr services stopped working entirely...

The following page gave an almost comically simple solution: http://discusssearch.info.apple.com/webx?50@220.38TZa9kzhsj.0@.68909a62 ...just un-check and then re-check the "Share my printers with other computers" box in System Preferences! Woo!

Thanks! I was going nuts! Messing around with cups, reinstalling printers, you name it. What a simple fix! It works. My sanity is now returning - thanks for the followup!
