Enable AppleTalk printer sharing with Windows
Authored by: tommac on Aug 10, '04 08:56:06AM

Perfect Hint! Works for my Laserwriter 4/600 connected to my iBook too!
I've just one comment to the used PostScript Driver used on the XP-side:
Cause my XP-machine always looked for a specific file (PScript5.DLL) on the xp-cd, when I added my printer, I had to take the Adobe PostScript Print Driver, located here (cause the adobe site was down):

In the Adobe-Installation dialog, you have to choose Network Printer, next add your printer (http://<ip_adress>:631/printers/<name_of_printer>)
For printer PPD I took the generic one, works for me!

...just forgot to say, that the Laserwriter is not directly connected to my ibook...it's connected to switch/router (D-Link 614+) via an Asanté Talk Ethernet adapter, so that I still can use my ethernet connection on my ibook...
... I think there was a problem to print via AIRPORT to an AppleTalk printer, if you are not using an original Apple Airport Router...
