I have an HP PSC 2410 All-in-One printer, which is connected to my Mac Mini running 10.4.1. The printer works great when connected directly to the Mac or my PC running XP Pro. I would like to leave the printer connected to my Mac and share it with 2 PC's running XP Pro on my network, but I'm having a bit of trouble.
I've heard from a couple different people that Bonjour is the way to go. Since my Mac is running Tiger, it'll support Bonjour. I have downloaded and installed Bonjour for Widnows and ran the Printer Wizard ... it detected my printer on the Mac, but I can't print! I've tried numerous print jobs from my PC (including a test page) and it won't go through. Nothing shows up in my Print Queue dialogue box on the Mac.
On the Mac, I have ensured that the printer I want to share is being shared in the Print and Fax preference. I have also gone into the Sharing preference and turned on Windows Sharing. What could be wrong?
In addition, I reviewed the Bonjour for Windows read me on the Apple web site. It mentions something about Bonjour using port UDP port 5353. I allowed this port in my Linksys router, but still nothing. I then disabled my router's firewall ... still nothing ....
So i'm stuck!! Anyone?
Also, my Mac has 10.3.9 on a separate partition. How can I share the printer with my PC's from 10.3.9? I don't think Bonjour is an option for 10.3. Thanks
