USB Printer Sharing 1.0 lets you share Universal Serial Bus (USB) printers among multiple Macintosh computers using Transport Control Protocol / Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) on physical (Ethernet) and wireless networks (AirPort). Printers are registered and discovered using the Service Location Protocol (SLP) provided by Network Services Location (NSL) Manager, version 1.1.
System Requirements for the USB Printer Sharing Software
· Both the host Macintosh to which a printer is connected and the client Macintosh that uses the printer must be running a version of Mac OS 9.
· Both host and client must be using TCP/IP to communicate on the network; AppleTalk is not supported.
· Shared printers must be connected to the built-in USB ports found on iMacs, iBooks, newer G3 PowerBooks, Blue and White G3 systems, and G4 systems. Plug-in USB adapters and USB PC cards are not supported.
· AirPort version 1.1 or later software is required for wireless networking.
· To use a shared printer, the client must be a PCI PowerMacintosh, and must have the USB Printer Sharing software and the printer driver or PPD for the printer installed. To use a shared USB PostScript printer, the client Macintosh must also have a USB port.
· Macintosh systems can be connected with cross-over cables, hubs, routers, switches, and AirPort.
USB Printer Sharing 1.0 is compatible with most USB printers.
