10.3: Share a Panther printer with OS 9
Authored by: fitzage on Apr 05, '05 02:48:29PM

This may be self-evident, but this also works with network printers that are not supported as such in OS 9. For example, the new HP LaserJet 1320tn we just got has a ppd for os 9, but it only supports USB (at least that's all I could find in the documentation). But with the Desktop Printer Utility, I was able to set this up using lpr and giving it the ip address of the printer. Then I could use the os 9 ppd provided by hp.
