Hi !

I have some problems shareing a printer.
it is connected to an iMac with USB, and on the same network there is another mac. On the host, i share the printer - Find it on the other machine, and I can print with the default settings. but the printer (Epson Stylus Pro 4800) has several custom options, like roll paper, cutter set..etc.

How can I make these avaiable ?

I tried to install the drivers on the guest..but nothing changed.

There is no Lan card in the printer (+600$) ,
The host have 10.4 but guest is Leopard..

Thank you for your help !!

Make sure that your adding the correct driver.
Go to System Preferences then Print and Fax, click the plus sign and then on the Printer Browser window, on "print using" make sure that you are not selecting a "gimp" driver", it has different options and settings compared to epson's drivers..

If this would not work, try to reset the printing systems and try to re-add the printer..

hope this works...
QUOTE Thanks
