Ok this sounds kinda stupid (in my opinion at least) but i'm stuck here.
Is there someone who knows how to tel a osx machine to print on a os9 machine connected printer?
Ofcourse i have shared it as i have done in the old days in the os9 machine but the osx machine can't find the printer.
The osx printer has the driver installed that's for sure.
If anyone could help soon it would be much apreciated.

Mac OSX share printer

Mac OS X 10.2 or later can share printers with Mac OS 9-based Macs , you can find one step-by-step methods from apple, here: docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=107060-en

With either method, the steps will need to be repeated if the IP address of the computer sharing the printer changes, so it's best that you assign your Mac OS X computer a static IP address if possible.

Mac OS 9: Sharing a printer with Mac OS X computers

That's great, i found that one out for myself because that's easy but now i need the other way round.
Sharing a printer witch is connected to OS9 so that a network station with OSX can print on that printer.
I don't want to sound degrading because i welcome the help but hey i thoughht the question quite clearly stated i wanted the other way round.
So if someone can help please do.
