10.3: Print from Windows XP to a shared Mac printer
Authored by: boshus on Aug 17, '05 09:45:19AM

I have tried all of the above but still am not able to print. The solution which gets me the furthest is to set up a second printer via CUPS on the Mac and then connect to it via a URL on the Win XP machine.

The job does arrive on the Mac, but it never gets printed: the queues says something along the lines of "generic:waiting for response from host".

Any ideas? Thanks in advance...

10.3: Print from Windows XP to a shared Mac printer -- USE BONJOUR

Excellent news. After struggling with the hints listed here, I got my HP all-in-one (connected to a Mac Mini) working from an XP laptop in 5 minutes by downloading Bonjour from Apple.com. (I saw it mentioned in the support forums there.)

Previously, I was getting "access denied" even though I could see my shared printer from XP. Bonjour solved it.

Good luck.

I too tried Bonjour after hours of struggling to get a Brother HL5140 connected to a Mac Mini working on a XP machine and it worked first time with no problems. Bonjour is definitely the tool to use!
