Currently Being ModeratedNov 12, 2007 8:58 PM (in response to Pat2483)I'm having the same problem. Brother MFC-9600 printer. Works fine in 10.4. I see it says "connecting to [IP address] on port 631". I don't know if that is the same port as in 10.4. 10.5 doesn't have the port control 10.4 did in the Sharing prefs... Please post if you find a solution.dual 2GHz G5, Mac OS X (10.5)
Currently Being ModeratedNov 12, 2007 10:02 PM (in response to Pat2483)Had the same problem with my Lexmark on my G4 desktop (Leopard) and my Intel MacBook. Lost the ability to print on the G4, also.
Uninstalled the printer software on both computers, then reinstalled on both. Made sure printer sharing was "On" on the G4.
By the time I could get into System Preferences on the MacBook trying to add a new printer, Bonjour had already found it and I simply made it my default - ran a test page and all is okay. Didn't have to do the IP or URL selection, etc.
Generally, I've found that a new install of non-Apple programs seems to fix the Leopard upgrade problems for them...G4 dual - Intel Macbook, Mac OS X (10.4.8)
Currently Being ModeratedNov 12, 2007 10:29 PM (in response to Pat2483)I was finally able to get my MFC-9600 working. The problem seemed to be in the wrong protocol being automatically configured (IPP instead of LPD). Here's what worked:
From Print & Fax system preference:
Deleted the printer.
Added new printer.
PROTOCOL: Line Printer Daemon - LPD
Address: [ the IP address for my printer ]
Print Using: [ the appropriate driver, in my case the MFC-9600 CUPS driver ]
CHECK: Share this printer
Under the Options & Supplies button, Location: lp
