make sure that you have AppleTalk turned on in both versions of the OS.
HP and AppleTalk play very nicely but the printers tend to disappear when AppleTalk is turned of or is directed to the wrong output. Should be Ethernet. See the AppleTalk control panel in 9.x and in the System Preferences > Network in OS X
I Just joined this forum on a recommendation from the Kim Komando web site I hope my fellow MAC enthusiasts can help! I can help with issues from system 6 through Tiger.
My wife is in a solo private practice as a family doctor. We use 3 G3 iMACs running OS 9.2.2. My wife just bought a used emac G4 running Tiger (10.4.11) & classic OS (9.2.2). All computers are networked via ethernet 100 base T to an HP Laserjet 1320n. All boxes have successfully printed over the network in the past.When my wife bought the eMac I transferred the data from the iMac on her desk to the eMac. Everything worked! I then wiped the iMac hard drive to purge my wife's personal data. Next I installed Panther (10.3.9). I transferred data from another iMac to my wife's old iMac.
I could print in Panther but not Classic. It kept getting "no printer selected." I searched apple HP and Google to no avail. I downloaded new copies of printer driver and HP software. I still could not print in Classic.
I wiped the hard drive again and did a complete restore of the original software OS 9.0.4. Still could not print. I reinstalled software from HP, still could not print. Updated 9.2.2 still could not print. I reinstalled software from HP, still could not print.
I feel like I am missing something obvious! Everything seems to match the other machines' configurations. HELP PLEASE! Any ideas?
