    Hi -

    3 iMacs on network (running Leopard) are not recognizing the printer that is connected to iMac running OS X 10.3.9. Attempted to make some changes in Terminal on the Leopard' macs in regards to the CUPS protocol that the 10.3 version of OS X uses to recognize networked printers but it didnt seem to work.

    Note: I did attempt to add --- cupsctl BrowseProtocols='"cups dnssd" --- to the Terminal in accordance with an article on Apples support area but the Terminal responded with "unmatched".

    Any and all help is appreciated!! ( also I have reasons for not upgrading the comp with the 10.3.9)

    Is the printer shared? Do you have Rendezvous enabled on the MacOS X 10.3 machine?

    For future reference, always give the model of the peripheral--in this case, a printer--that causes you problems.
    For current reference, what is your model printer?

    Yup the printer is shared but I don't believe rendezvous is on. The printer is a Epson Stylus Photo 1400.
