    Patrick, I haves selected the printer sharing now that I have deleted and manually reloaded the printer. But there is still no connection there.

    Bob, I have had a quick look at the link, but I am so tired that I can't see straight at the moment so I will check through it tomorrow.

    Thank you both for your time and trouble for me. That doesn't sound quite right, but ???

    Have you tried printing to it while it is directly connected to the Mac you are wanting to print from, and maybe try ethernet and/or USB connection, or even wirelessly if it is a Wi-Fi-Capable printer.

    I believe that Printer Sharing prefers to have the printer connected directly to the Mac that is going to do the sharing.

    I hope you had a chance to get a nice shot of Scotch or Whiskey or maybe some nice wine before you head off to bed io give your brain a rest. And maybe a few anti-frustration pills and hopefully things will improve in the morning.

    Patrick scotch is whisky, one of the better ones too I decided to have some Milk-of-Amnesia in the form of a pint of good English beer earlier, so that helped with the sleep pattern especially when it was followed by a couple of glasses of good red with dinner. Medicinal only of course?

    well, I've sorted it now, I hope !! But at one stage I had both the iMac and MBP not being able to print! I was getting VERY confusticated.

    They were both telling me that the printer was off line, so I did a search, DuckDuckGo of course, and found out how to do a Printer System Reset. I did that on both systems and they both then let me do an add printer OK. But they still showed up as Off Line! So I rebooted both Macs and everything then behaved as it should and i can now print from both systems OK

    So, thank you for all of your help and patience. It's great to know that it's there when needed

    Do you have Printer Sharing enabled on any computer connected on your home network?

    There are just the 2 systems, imac and MBP and neither has had printer sharing and when I was going through all of the checks on the iMac, when it was still operating and before it failed, it didn't matter if it was on or off. I tried both and they were the same.

    I would assume that the printer being connected directly to the router via the RJ47 ethernet cable the same as the 2 Macs it was just another item and available to anything on the home network as long as they have the driver for it.

    Thanks for that.

    I was just wondering, since the were all ethernet connected, if the iMac took precedent in controlling the printer functions, because Printer Sharing was enabled?

    You are welcome Bob. I don't imagine that either had precedence over the other. Just first served and the other has to wait?

    Ta again for all of your help.
