Print to a missing Windows shared printer in 10.3.5
Authored by: baxter on Mar 24, '05 07:37:02AM

I've wrestled with this problem for about 3 weeks now.. and think i've found the problem..

We have a Windows print server with 30 queues, of which only five show up under Windows Printing in 10.3.8.

I noticed today that the 5 queues that _did_ show up had shorter names than the ones that didn't.. So i changed the share name of one the non-showers to a MS-DOS 12 character compliant share name, and bingo! It appears under Windows Printing...

So. give your Windows Printers a Share Name of 12 characters or less, and you're in business..
