Printer server software

Hi, Ken,

First, I just wanted to point out that you posted your request in "PowerPC Macs", but the Qyadra 660av is obviously not a PowerPC Mac.

Second, server software depends a lot on (1) what printer you want to use, and (2) what protocols you wish to serve.

As a general rule, most printers are shareable via Mac OS without extra software, but I suppose if that were the case for you, you wouldn't be asking.

So what printer do you have?

A further missing point is fr

A further missing point is from what devices do you wish to print. If it's a Linux box, there are LPD options. If it's a Mac, there may be free options built into the Mac OS.

Information.....

the printer(s) that i want to use is my new and old printer, they are:

- Apple LaserWriter 4/600 PS

- Epson stylus CX8400

instead of using my quadra 660av i can use my Power Mac G4 because the new one requires USB
