Recently switched from Winblows to Mac tiger on a Macbook. I've liked it so much I just purchased a Pro tower with Leopard.

After downloading Canon's Mac driver, the IP5200 printer works fine when connected directly to the tiger laptop. It also works fine when connected directly to the leopard tower.

However, I can't get the Canon IP5200 printer that is directly connected to the new Leopard tower to share with the tiger laptop.

The network works fine sharing files. I've enabled printer sharing and the firewall setting is set at "Allow all incoming connections".

I can see the printer that is connected USB to the leopard tower from the tiger laptop over the network but when I send a job to it, it times out and says 'Jobs stopped'.

I've beat my head against the wall on this for an entire day. The answer lies beyond my Mac ability.

How do you get a tiger laptop to print to a leopard tower shared printer?

Check the printer utility and delete any existing jobs in the queue.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Printer_Setup_Utility

I have actually had to delete the printer and add it again on occasion. (just to be able to print)

When all else fails, try everything!

I had been deleting the jobs in the queue as I continued to retry printing jobs. As for installing the printer, I've done that a few times already too with no change. But thanks anyway for your suggestions.

Are you logged in on the Tower or is it in sleep mode?

Logged in. In fact, I have both computers and the printer all on the same large desk. I'm able to work with everything side by side making changes to try and make things work.

Are there 2 separate drivers for the printer? (one for tiger and one for leopard)?
Which one needed the downloaded driver?

Something you may want to try. Seems to have helped others with the same problem.

Edit: http://docs.info.apple.com/article.h...4#canondrivers
See if the Leopard drivers are the same for Tiger.

Canon brought out a driver in November after the launch of Leopard. Have you tried downloading that? here is the link:-

Yep, there is only one driver for Mac OS X that is good for both Tiger and Leopard. It is the one I downloaded already.

Soulwar, I checked out the links and they look very informative. The only problem is that it's pretty much all over my head. I was really hoping I was somehow overlooking some configuration check box or something. I have been all over the sharing and printer sections in Leopard and I just can't figure this thing out. I appreciate you guy's input and I'll have a closer look at that CUP stuff later. Until then, I'll keep meditating on this problem and perhaps more input will come in off this site. As a last resort I'll find a Mac expert in my area and pay to have him come out.

For $200 he'll probably tell me I need to wait for a Mac patch to come out. But I'll keep checking back over the next few days and see if any more suggestions pop up.

Yeah, it seems to be a growing problem lately. The links I sent seem to be a workaround for some. I agree though, it is a little too much.
Not sure if you tried using Bonjour or not. (doubt it will help, but read my signature...)
Anything I find out, I'll send your way!

Yep, at this point I'll try anything. Thanks for the effort good buddy. If I find a solution I'll be sure to post it.
