I have been printing to a Xanté Accel-a-writer 3N for years on an ENET LAN with a G3 and G4 with Tiger and Leopard.

I have gotten a new Mac Mini to replace the G3, but cannot get the Mini to print to the printer. I have set it up as an IP printer trying both LPD and IPP. The printer is seen and can be pinged, but when I try to print and watching 'Printmonitor' it connects to the printer, says "Copying print data" and then goes to pause or says cannot connect to printer.

The Xanté driver has not been updated since Tiger and I have been able to use the LW 8500 driver with Tiger and Leopard with great results (it is the same printer as the LW 8500)

The printer has ENET, Localtalk, parallel and pc-type serial connectors. No USB.

I am wondering if this is a driver problem or a configuration problem. O wonder if some other driver would work (generic does not).

Any advice would be appreciated.
