LocalTalk w/ Epson Stylus Color 600

I am running a localtalk network between a macintosh G3 and a PPC 6100. Currently we are succesfully sharing a HP 4MV printer, however, the Epson Stylus Color 600 networked into this configuration does not work. In the chooser it indicates that it wants me to choose a serial port, but I want it to recognize that it is on localtalk.
      I believe it is possible to connect this simple color inkjet printer into a localtalk configuration but I can't figure out how. Epson provides no direct customer support, and I bought this printer at a large computer warehouse called CompuTown. Unfortunately, its employees can barely turn a computer on, let alone discuss a localtalk configuration with me.

Thanks in advance,

Ensure you are using the "AT" Epson driver rather than the "EX" driver (the two options should be available in the chooser).

Try turning off Appletalk, restarting, open chooser, configure, quit chooser, and repeat if necessary.

You could also try disabling (and then restarting) the following extensions (OS 8.5):

• Open Transport SNMP
• OpenTptSNPLib

Oh, and rbr's advice above to download the *latest* drivers for your inkjet from the epson site is a great idea.

Do you have the Appletalk or Ethernet board installed in the Epson 600?  It is not a network printer -- it is network capable if you spend the money for the optional board.  Without that board, the AT driver won't do any good.
