    You must print to a printer shared by a Mac as though it were a networked PostScript printer. Use the LaserWriter print driver. If you want to print via Windows networking, then you must enable SMB/CIFS on your Mac. You may use IP-printing instead. The Finder Help menu will give you the specifics.
