Can printers be shared on a Mac running OS 9.2 so PC's running XP can print to them using IP.  I've read that this can be accomplished in OS10 using CUPS.   I know very, very little about Macs, but I have a customer using one as a print server.  Time to learn.

Nope. Not under OS 9. I don't even think Dave for Mac will let you though I could be wrong on that. Certainly possible under OS X.

How about the other way around.  Can Mac print to a shared XP printer?

DAVE will permit sharing printers (PostScript) and files, both ways, between Windows & Mac environments, using TCP/IP.

Everett31,

A third party program for the other way around (Mac print to PC) :

It will allow Mac to access PC's shared folder too!!! :)

Good luck.
