===Printing over AppleTalk===
 +
<pre>
 +
I have a Nextstation hooked into the school network here, and I would
 +
REALLY like to print to the local LaserWriter NTR.
 +
CAPer shows it, and I can print up the test page, but I can't print
 +
anything from Edit.app(no printer selected), and PrintManager.app is
 +
clueless.
 +
 +
What I would like is to print from the "Print..." menu over the
 +
Ethernet/appletalk to the printer.
 +
 +
Is this even possible?
 +
 +
 +
----
 +
 +
If CAPer can show it in the network chooser and print to it (guess you used
 +
the top 'test' button which performs a direct PAP connection and pumps over
 +
the testpage) everything should be set up to print from any app. Just follow
 +
the instructions (It is in the CAPer README in the Info menu):
 +
 +
1. Create a new 'dummy' printer using /NextApps/PrintManager.app, call it
 +
what you want, select the correct PPD and set it to use the serial interface
 +
(CAPer will change this, it is only for setup)
 +
 +
2. Start CAPer, start the Appletalk services, wait to establish network, open
 +
the Network Chooser, select the printer entity in your zone. A panel opens,
 +
on the top you will see the name of the printer entity at the bottom you will
 +
see the in 1. created printer name (Under Local Printers).
 +
 +
3. You now have to connect the 'Entity' to you 'Queue', select the in 1.
 +
created printer name, press the 'connect' button to connect it. Press the
 +
lower 'test' button (the one under the connect button) to test your queue
 +
setup. If a testpage comes out everything should be fine.
 +
 +
4. If you queue 'hangs' for some reason, do a 'lpc restart YOUR_QUEUENAME'
 +
(where YOUR_QUEUENAME is your name from 1.) as root in a shell.
