Network printer expert help needed
I would like to print from my Hackintosh to a printer on a windows network.
I am running a dual boot Windows Vista/Leopard OS X 86 10.5.5
The printer (Epson Stylus Photo RX425) is connected to another Vista PC via USB. This machine and the dual boot machine share files and connect to the internet via a Netgear wireless router.
When booted to Vista on the dual boot machine I can print documents etc. on the printer connected to the other Vista machine via the wireless network.
Now I want to print from the Leopard side of the dual boot machine.
I have tried to connect to the printer this way.
System preferences>Print & Fax>Click + to add printer>in new window>ckick Windows tab>click workgroup>click connected machine>click installed printer(Epson Stylus Photo RX420)>choose 'Select Driver To Use' from drop down box>choose 'Epson Stylus Photo Series 1.3'>Click 'Add'>Printer seems to be installed
When I try to print the application in use shows the printer but when I send the document nothing prints.
When I open the printer queue I see the document to be printed, the queue says 'Printer ready' but the document line says 'Stopped'
If I click the 'Resume' tab two things happen.
1: A diagloge box appears which says: 'Operation could not be completed' 'client-error-not-possible'
2: The printer icon briefly says 'Printing (document name)' then 'No document found'
Then the queue returns to 'Stopped'
Can anyone help me with this problem :confused:
