Share USB Printer on Mac OS X Server
Authored by: Loh-Q on Mar 28, '08 05:32:30PM

We use a Canon MP-610 multi-function printer (USB) and it works fine with just the normal Print Server setup. The trick is to use it with IPP protocol only and make sure that under LPR "Show name in Bonjour" is enabled even though LPR is NOT enabled.... That should work for any USB printer, just make sure you download and install the drivers as Leopard Server doesn't have the drivers installed as default like Leopard Client does. With the Canon, we had to make sure everyone had the newest drivers too to match the server. As for scanning, we have a generic "scanner" user that we can use "screen sharing" with to scan. That way anyone can scan docs and save them to a shared location and access their files too. It is an "Advanced Server" installation, not "Standard" or "WorkGroup".

Hope that helps...
