use Macbook OS 10.92 to print to windows 7 pro shared printer
Posted on 2014-03-16
I have a Windows 7 Pro (both bonjour & LPD/LPR services are running) with a usb attached Epson Photo Stylus r220 shared with name of "epson-r220".
Need to print from a MacBook OS 10.92. MacBook is connected to a Wireless Cisco Router and the Win 7 pro system is connected to the same Cisco (rv220W) via Ethernet.
If the epson-r220 is connected directly to the MacBook it prints fine.
According to Apple...Incident# 588859142they will not help ... call the printer manufacturer! 1.2 hours WASTED. They would not even confirm that TCP port 515 is used by Apple.
The 10.92 mac add printer will allow you to select Windows but EVERYTHING is grayed out.
Before the USB direct connection and download driver the Mac was able to see the shared epson printer, but could not print to it.
