    Seems I've set it up correctly.. but.. not so much :)

    I select print and it sends the data (50pg .pdf)
    The printer says processing data but never prints... Any Ideas?

    Printer is connected to a windows machine. I'm connected to it through wireless. The printer is a HP business Jet.

    Do you have printer sharing enabled in windows, and have you tried with bonjour on the mac?

    Yes printer sharing is enabled.. I can print to it though my other windows machines from in the network. I have not tried bonjour.. I'd like to get it working this way if at all possible. It seems to be sending the data to the printer it just never initiates the actual printing process. I dunno i'm left scratching my head.
