Hi,

My computer is networked to a LaserWriter II and I would like to set up an Epson 740 to my system. But when I set up the Epson in chooser I loose my LWII set-up.  When I want to switch printers I must continue to go back to Chooser.  Is there a work around?  Can I set-up a Local-Talk bridge for the Epson so others in my BLDG.  can see my epson on the network?


System Details:
5200/75 LC
Os 8.0
48 MB RAM

Network:
10BaseT
LaserWriter II /W a printserver (Dayna ?) located in a different bldg

 
Thanks

The chooser is where you select your printers. To switch printers you must go to the chooser and select it. Thats just the way it works

 As far as networking an Epson there are several alternatives. Use epson share from www.versiontracker.com  or use an epson driver that supports networking. For example i have an epson 600 here which is not networkable and the epson 600 drivers dont support sharing. BUT the epson 640 IS shareable and the drivers support it. So i use the epson 640 drivers for my epson 600 and voila, its shared. Do the same with your 740. Try other drivers until you find one that allows you to share it while still being able to print to it yourself. This is a better solution than epson share but takes a little experimenting.
