How to Set Up Mac OS X to Work Over the Network with an HP Deskjet Printer 722C Shared on a Microsoft Windows PC

There are two options:

OPTION #1

This document assumes that you have a Windows PC with a printer attached, the printer is working, and the printer is properly shared with a share-level password. For this document, we assume username=guest and password=”whateveryouchoseforthesharepassword.”

Read this page for some general background first: http://homepage.mac.com/william_white/print_to_windows.html, but don’t follow all the steps until reading through this document.

Per William White’s article, follow this information:

QUOTE
Since the 03-24-03 security update, the smbclient and smbspool commands are broken. Printing to Windows relies on smbspool. Unfortunately, smbspool is still broken in 10.2.5 and 10.2.6.

This can be fixed by installing the prior versions of both which can be found in my file sharing area at http://homepage.mac.com/william_white/FileSharing3.html . After downloading smbspool, you need to copy it to the /usr/bin folder as root. You do this logged in as root, either from the GUI, logged in as root, or you can do it from the terminal. Make sure the binary ends up with the correct ownership (root:wheel) and permissions (owner = read/ write/ execute, group and others = read/ execute). Also, see http://www.macwindows.com/jaguar.html – 033103 for a great deal of background and various step-by-step information.

In the Mac Terminal (The Terminal may be found under /Applications/Utilities in OS X): type the following command as a user with administrative privileges

sudo ln -s /usr/bin/smbspool /usr/libexec/cups/backend/smb
