    Hi All,

    I have a network with a windows box with a parallel Epson Stylus color 400 (quite old). I want to be able to print from my PB12 (OSX 2.5) to it.

    I had a quick look at it and couldn't really figure it out...
    Does anyone know how I would go about setting up the printer?
    Any pointers much appreciated

    Cheers

    Doesn't matter now actually, I solved my problem with PC MacLAN

    This must be the 6th time I have awnsered this question for people, I should put it on webpage or something.

    Anyway, you need at least 10.2.4 to do this. Go the http://www.apple.com/downloads/macosx/unix_open_source/gimpprint.html and download a program called Gimp Print and install it. Once installed go to the readme file and it will tell you how to add your windows printer to your print centre. Unlike PC MacLan, this does not cost any money if you have OS 10.2.4.
