MacBook Pro :: Why Does WiFi Printer Show Up Under "Shared" Two Times

Mar 11, 2012

I have a Epson Stylus SX440 that showes up two times under "Shared" in "Finder".  One as a "Mac" called "Epson Stylus SX440" and the other as a "PC" called "epson130f59".  There is no problem with the printer. It's just irritating to watch all the time...

MacBook Pro :: OS X 10.9.4 - WiFi Got Disconnected And Then Connected Again For Many Times

Aug 29, 2014

After upgrading to OS X 10.9.4 (13E28), I found that the Wifi of my MBP retina would suddenly got disconnected, then after a moment, automatically got connected again.... But on and off, this issue happen again -- disconnected, connected....  

Really don't know why. This issue did not happen before upgrading to 10.9.4. So consider maybe is the system bug?

OS X V10.5 Leopard :: Can't See Printer Options On Shared Printer?

Apr 28, 2012

Have just added a wireless Canon printer to my local network.  Have a shared print queue on a Mac Mini. Have modified the printer options for this printer/queue using CUPS on the Mini. 

Identified as a shared printer.  Expanded options using CUPS, these options appear in the Mini "print" panel. Can see printer over network on another Mac.Cannot see printer presets, or expanded options on this machine "print" panel.Copies presets .plist from Mini to local machine, now see presets {this is suboptimal - the OS should see the shared presets).

Cannot see epanded print options on local machine.  I would expect the expanded options would be visible to

any network machine connected to this printer/queue. What am I missing?

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Cannot See Shared Printer On MacBook

May 14, 2012

I'm having trouble printing to a printer shared by my Mac Pro running 10.6.8 from my MacBook Pro running 10.6.8 Printer sharing is turned on on my Mac pro, they are connected to the same network, the MacBook via Airport and the Mac Pro via ethernet. I can quite happily swap files between them. When I try to add a printer on the MacBook the Canon iP4300 simply doesn't show up under the list of available printers as I think it should do.

MacBook Pro :: Connecting To LanierLD145 Printer Via Shared Wireless Network

Jun 6, 2012

I am a new intern with a small company and am trying to connect my Macbook Pro's printer settings to our office printer, which is a LanierLD145. We halso have an HP3600 on the same wireless network which my Macbook can detect and print to just fine via the shared network server. However, when I try to find the LanierLD145 I can't find it anywhere on my shared network or via a wireless to connection in order to print to it from my laptop.

I have access to the desktop I believe the printer is routed to the server through and have "shared printer with network" via this computer. However, I still cannot find the LD145 icon on my macbook when I try to connect and print, even when going through the "Windows"-> (shared server) route. I've also installed apple's "general lanier printer driver" in hopes have luck finding the printer if I have the driver installed, but that has not worked either. How I can connect the macbook to the LanierLD145 via my wireless server connection?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Show All Shared Folders On Mac?

Feb 5, 2012

I have a Windows PC. It has lots of shared folders. Suppose the name of the PC is "WinPC1". If I use a Windows laptop, I could easily see all shared folders by typing "\WinPC1" in the address bar. 

Now, I am using a Mac. I know I can add specific folders by adding the server as "smb://WinPC1/<individual folder name>", but it cannot map the root "smb://WinPC1". Suppose there are 100 shared folders, then I would have 100 mounted folders on Mac. 

Is there any way to map the root folder, like in Windows PC? I mean I only want a mounted folder for the "smb://WinPC1", not "smb://WinPC1/docs", "smb://WinPC1/musics",... and so on.

OS X :: How To Add A Windows Shared Printer To Mac

Jan 15, 2011

I've followed the instructions on the Apple website in relation to adding a Windows shared printer to a Mac [URL] but I still can't get it to work.

When I send a test page to the printer it appears in the Windows print queue and shows 'spooling' as the status. The document never prints.

I really don't know where to go from here, I'm just totally stumped and I've been trying for weeks to get this to work. Has anyone got any ideas?

OS X :: PC Won't Print To Mac Shared Printer?

Feb 21, 2009

Made a custom TCP/IP port on the PC. Assigned my Mac's IP address as the location of the printer. Made sure protocol was set to RAW. Everything should work but the print job never makes it to the Mac. The print que on the PC shows error and the print que on the Mac never shows anything. I decided to delete all the printers on the PC, plug it in directly to the printer via usb and let it install the drivers, print test page etc... After that I reconnected the printer to the mac, pc to the network and just changed the port on the printer properties to reflect the IP address. It still didn't work. I can't seem to find any more information on what to do next. The PC is running Win XP and the Mac is on Leopard. Another thing, how does the PC know which printer to use if the Mac has two attached? I disabled sharing on the other printer thinking the PC might have been confused.

OS X :: Macs Not Show Up In Finder Shared List

Aug 3, 2009

I just got an iMac. For the first few hours it was turned on, my MBP showed up in the iMac's Finder, and vice versa. However now, for the past two days, neither Mac has shown up in the others Finder. Connecting to afp://[their ip address] lets me see the public folders, but I still can't use the shared iTunes libraries, or share screens.

The same thing happened with the MBP and other Windows/Linux devices on the network, as well as my jailbroken iPod with Netatalk installed, but I just chalked that up to the klugey nature of mixed networking. Guess that wasn't the problem.

I have a network consisting of three Macs and a PC running Windows XP. One of my printers (a Canon Pixma MP830) is USB-connected to one of the Macs with sharing turned on. Thus, I am able to print to this device from any of the Macs. How can I access this shared printer from the Windows device? I can't determine an IP address because the printer doesn't have one.

I am currently sharing the printer via USB (broken networkport) connected via a Mac using 10.4.11. I can print from every Mac, obviously.

Hardware :: Printing To Shared PC Printer

Dec 25, 2009

I have already done this successfully with one PC laser printer using the built-in OS X System Preferences utilities. I have tried the CUPS method. I do not know what uname/pword combo it wants. There is only one account on this machine and no password. That combination is unacceptable to CUPS. Give me this info and I'll give CUPS another shot. Through the OS, when I get to the step of selecting the driver from the list, the driver is not listed even though. I just installed it with the original driver disk from the mfr. Is there a way to get the printer driver I installed to show up on the list of available drivers I am offered? My other printer was in the list, connected just fine, and I can print to it with no problems.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Shared Printer Bug After 10.7.4 HP LaserJet USB

Jun 18, 2012

Before the 10.7.4 update, my HP Color LaserJet CM2320nf multi fucntion printer worked just fine with the built in OS X print drivers. I had the printer shared on the network via my iMac (2011) over USB and other devices could print to it via Bonjour. 

As soon as the 10.7.4 update hit, printing has been an issue. Whenever a print job is sent to the printer over the network the printer displays a 'Please Insert Paper' warning that has to be cleared on the device itself before the print will continue, even though the printer is full of paper... This does not happen when printing from the iMac itself, only when using the iMac to share the printer. 

10.7.4 seems to have been a really buggy update as it has caused problems with Wifi becoming unusable until the iMac is rebooted.

OS X Yosemite :: Shared Printer Not Working?

Nov 30, 2014

I have set up the shared printer on my iMac in my room. I am trying to print from my husbands iMac in the living room. It is acting like it is going to print but when I try to print the printer queue comes up and it pauses the print job. When I select resume it says "Printing- 1.6.2 is ready to print." then it pauses again.

I tried setting the printer up multiple times from the living room and when I do it says the address is "valid and complete host name or address" then when I'm done and click "Add" it tells me "Unable to verify the printer on your network." "Unable to connect to 'Mycomputer-name-example.local’ due to an error. Would you still like to create the printer?" cancel or continue.

Also I installed the printer software on both computers so that shouldn't be the issue.

Hardware :: Shared Mac Printer - Getting Mirrored Print

Sep 30, 2008

I'm trying to set up a shared printer on windows. The printer is physically hooked up to an iMac G5 via USB and I'm trying to set the printer up on my xp machine. I followed these instructions and aside from a few things that weren't the same as explained (I'll go into further detail below), everything went fairly smoothly. I was able to add the printer and print a test page, but when the test page came out, everything was mirrored. I blurred the printer information because I just grabbed the image off the net and reversed it. The printer information on the image had nothing to do with my own printer. Now about the things that were slightly different than in the steps from the link above:

Step 4: there was no usb printer item in the list, but the printer name DID show up: HP Deskjet 6500 Series usb, so I selected that
Step 5: I did not have to enter the URI manually. I think by selecting the printer name in Step 4, it automatically entered the URI of the printer.

The printer is a HP Deskjet 6540 running on OS 10.5, fully updated. The Windows machine is running XP SP3, fully updated. I've done a lot of fiddling around and just can't figure it out. The driver I'm using on the windows machine is the drive directly from the HP website for my specific HP printer. Alternatively, I also tried adding the printer to CUPS by the following steps:
- start terminal
- type lpinfo -v to get the URI of the printer
- type lpadmin -p <printername> -E -v <uri> -m raw

OS X :: Shared Printer Not Visible To 3 Macs On Network

Nov 3, 2008

I have my Mac Pro connected to my hp c3100 printer. It is shared, all sharing options are enabled on the Mac Pro. 2 Macbooks and an iMac cannot find or see this printer. Networking, screensharing, file transfers, they all work fine. Just can't see the printer. Is AppleTalk required to do this? Here's some screenshots from the Mac Pro. I have never tried to network a printer in Leopard, I seem to remember it was easier in Tiger.

OS X :: Install Driver For Windows Shared Printer

Nov 26, 2008

I need to install the Canon MP520 printer to my MBP. The printer is connected to another a PC running windows and is shared. I installed the OSX driver provided on the Canon page, I can see the printer in the network printers but when I am asked to choose the driver I can't see the correct model listed. On the other hand, if I simply connect the same printer via USB, to my MBP it is recognized directly. When I'm asked to provide the driver while adding the printer via the network, there is also the option to browse to the driver location. So my question is, where are the can I find the right driver on the OS?

OS X :: How To Print To Shared Dell 1700 Printer From SL

Sep 2, 2009

So, I've joined my home workgroup (I think?) and yet when I go to the 'network' tab in finder NOTHING shows up other than the 2 PC's whose IPs I added manually (so I could see their network drives).

I've searched and searched and cant for the life of me get this printer working.

It's a Dell 1700 printer connected to a networked XP machine, and all the PC's in my house can see/use it just fine, but for some reason on my MBP I cant at all.

OS X :: Why Shared Printer Not Printing From IMac? (Error On XP PC)

Sep 17, 2009

Got a iMac running OS 10.6, and am wanting to print from a Samsung ML-1710P printer connected via serial port to a XP PC. Everything seems to all be communicating with each other, except I eventually get a print error on the XP machine in the print manager. Can anyone help with this?

- the computer and printer can be seen by the mac.
- when a print job is sent, the mac spools and sends it "ok"
- the XP print manager status changes to "printing" then after about 1 min changes to an error.
- the latest driver for that printer is installed on the XP machine.
- I have tried to use the Generic Postscript Printer driver, the Generic PCL Laser Printer driver and an old Mac OS10.3 driver from the Mac end. There are no newer drivers available. I have shared this successfully printer before, but only from another windows machine.
