Airport interference fixed
Authored by: kd4ttc on Apr 28, '08 06:12:47AM
I was also having problems. In my case just having an Airport on the network was a problem. Symptoms were print job would die partway through the job with communications error 306. I have a Canon Pixma iP 3300. If the Airport was disconnected from the network the printer would print and reconnecting the Airport caused the problem to recur. There are some comments on the net about Bonjour being an issue but I couldn't turn off Bonjour. Changing file sharing didn't help. I then applied the ipfw solution and now no printer problems. I only did the throttling to the airport with
sudo ipfw add pipe 1 ip from any to 10.0.1.1 10000
for this to work. I did not have to throttle the connection to the printer. 10.0.1.1 is my airport ip address. I have an old classic airport, the flying saucer/gumdrop device with the das blinkenlichten (blinkenlights).
