Share OS 9 USB Printer with OS X (not through Classic)
Posted on 2004-04-03
To share a USB printer between a Mac running OS 9 and another running OS X, I've found that there are 5 scenerios. The first three - OS X to OS X, OS 9 to OS 9, OS 9 to OS X (Classic Mode) are not a problem. The 4th, a USB printer connected to an OS X machine and sharing with a Mac OS 9 computer, will work with ink jet printers (sort of) through Desktop Printer Utility-LPR (works best with PS printers).
The question is this: Is there a way to print to a USB shared printer (connected to an OS 9 machine), on an OS X machine?
