Where can I find Windows95 printer drivers for an Apple Laserwriter 310?  

(Telling the printer that the printer is a Laserwriter 360 isn't much help as some things won't print)

Oops, just realized that no 310 driver on this site :(
Dig this location, try Win 3.11 driver (in extreme case). Feel
free to reject my answer if you didn't found it.

3.11 drivers don't work

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

I'm afraid that only option is contact Apple and ask for drivers
(if they have drivers at all).

BTW, did you tried 3.11 drivers ? They should work, but installation
somewhat tricky.

Maybe problem with LPT port definition ? Or cable ?

I've stumbled across the solution - an ordinary generic Apple Laserwriter works fine.

Is your printer REQUIRES bi-directional IEEE-compliant LPT cable, like HP LJ 6p does ?

Sorry, I don't have enough knowledge to answer that.  Am off the air for 6 weeks as going on leave.  Have a happy Christmas

The Apple Laserwriter 310 is a Postscript printer, you can use the Apple Laserwriter driver as a substitute, or the Apple Laserwriter II if it used Postscript Level 2.
Postscript is Postscript, nearly all postscript drivers are interchangable.
