View Full Version : Printing to Tiger shared printer from Leopard

02-25-2009, 05:36 PM
I have a Canon IP4300 connected to a PPC iBook running OS X 10.4.11. Prior to upgrading my iMac to OSX 10.5.6 the shared printer was selectable on the iMac. After the upgrade it just didn't appear. This Apple tech note (http://support.apple.com/kb/HT2275) suggests that Tiger shared printers should show up but for OSX 10.3.9 and below you need to use this Terminal command.

cupsctl BrowseProtocols='"cups dnssd"'

Long story short, I tried it and it worked for my Tiger printer.

Just thought I'd post a solution for anyone with the same problem.
