appletalk and printers missing in chooser
Posted on 2000-01-18
In a network of 3 macs, using appletalk to print to 3 different printers, two of the macs are having printer problems. All three are running OS 8.5. The printers are a Tektronix, Apple laser, and HP Laser Jet 5si. Two of the macs are mainly having the problem. If one mac can see all the printers in the chooser, then the other mac can only see two out of the three. The third mac can usually see all the printers. If you powercycle the printers then the printers that show up may change. For the two that are having the problem consistanly, one will have three printers available and the other one will see two. Or, one will only see one and the other one will see two. ??? Please help.
