More info: I see there is no more AppleTalk. Tried printing through UPS port with an ethernet adapter but no go. Not clear on all this "socket" stuff. I have TimeMachine but upgraded months ago. Would that socket info still be available to me? I that the only way to print with Ethernet? How can Apple do this to me after 30+ years of loyalty?
(No Green Checkmark)
Thanks. I did set up printer (now connected with parallel port) in preferences but still not printing. Where should I plug in the USB connectoe? I've tried the back where there is the network symbol and the front. (I have a MacPro) See attached screen shots.
I don't want to change the Ethernet connection to my other Macs if I can help it.
Without green check! Sorry for being redundant but I the problem is still on- going.
I am not an expert by any configuration, I just fooled with it and got it to work. You should be able to plug into any USB port. Looks like your MAC is seeing the printer, maybe there is a problem with some other settings? Try doing a restart with everything connected.
Maybe somebody who is more knowledgable will chime in?
Thanks, Bill. Appreciate your help. I have restared everything. Did you get the other screenshot? I'm using the latest drivers from Xante. When I try to print I no longer get "unable to connect" instead the printer pauses and won't come off pause. See third screen shot. The light changes from green to yellow.
Yes, the printer is connected to another Mac by Ethernet. How can I turn off the printer to that old Mac without disconnecting to IPS? I tried turning off the the Ethernet but then I wasn't able to connect to ISP. Tried printing like that with share printer box checked but I get the same thing. Printer immediately goes to pause. Had to reconnect Ethernet to get on line. How do I omit the IP address? Xante site doesn't offer much help becasue they cater to Windows users. Lexmark is UBS and prints fine.
