    Hey all,

    I'm trying to print a document from my mb to the HP Officejet J5780 connected to a windows xp machine through the local network.

    The local network is set up and works fine, we are able to file share... everything.

    The problem arises when I try to print from my macbook. The printer goes crazy and starts spewing pages... endless pages.

    I'm running 10.4.11.

    I go into Printers & Fax > Add printer > Hold down the option key and select "More printers" > go to the "Advanced" tab > Windows printer via SAMBA > Enter the device URL as "user:pass@House/Randy/Officejet" and click add.

    I open a doc, click print. The printer starts and pages begin to spew...

    What am I doing wrong?

    Thanks so much for any replies.
