I have many miles on this printer and there are many more to go. I took Topher Kessler's advice in his 11/09/2009 MacFixit post about connecting to the 8500 with Snow Leopard. I connected the printer to one of my Time Capsule's ethernet ports and the ethernet port of the printer. The printer shows up for selection when I use the PAGE SETUP & PRINT commands, but the printer immediately goes to PAUSE when I go to PRINT. When I click on INFO in the print cue I find that the computer can't find the printer [input ethernet address].
When the 8500 prints a test page after turned on, that page prints an ethernet address for the printer (08:00:07:64:1e:70) and that is the address I put into the ADD PRINTER dialog box under the "Line Printer Daemon -- LPD" selection (which says that this address is either incorrect or incomplete). My SYSTEM PROFILER lists the same address.
I'm in a quandry. How do I determine the correct ethernet address for the printer?
