I'm having a real problem with printer sharing. I'm trying to establish an iMac G5 PPC running 10.5.8 as a print server on a network but for some reason, I'm unable to get the USB attached printer to be advertised to other computers via bonjour. The server sees the printer and prints fine locally but none of the other networked machines can see the printer in order to add it to their printer list. Print sharing and file sharing both appear to configured properly and the same printer is sharable from another PPC ibook and or intel-based computers. This appears to be a bonjour issue on the server but I don't know enough about bonjour to confirm. Any advise on how to trouble shoot this or know issues would be appreciated. Thanks.
QUOTE Thanks
