Eric. Great Info. I have mac 10.4 printing to XP printer. This actually was working for me and OS10.4 picked up printer no problem. Upgrade to Win7 and lost printer access. Using your method was able to configure printer but using LPD (Line Printer Daemon). Must activate LPD in Windows7 by Turn Windows Components On/Off.

Well, I've a friend with a new Macbook and she wants to connect it to her husband's Windows-based printer via a WiFi network. I know just about nothing about Macs but I found this article and thought it might be the answer. Wrong.... I started Print & Fax, clicked on + to add printer but I don't get a Printer Browser option and no Windows Printing option on the screen that does appear. Has the latest version of the OS got some other way of doing this? Oh, and yesterday the MacBook could see the PCs but today it can't but they can still see it. I'm totally confused. Anyone got any hints? TIA

This is a great article, but I'm having some trouble adapting this trick to my network situation. I'm on a network that dynamically assigns IP addresses, and I have no way of setting a static IP for my PC. My laptop (the Mac) is running OS 10.4, and the PC is running XP. I've tried nearly every combination I can think of, and I keep getting the generic NT_STATUS_UNSUCCESSFUL error when attempting to print to the shared printer, which I'm fairly certain means that the connection simply isn't working with the location and credentials I'm providing. Any thoughts on how to make this work in a dynamic IP environment?

If I didn't find your solution via Google in the past 5 mins, I'd have to leave the customer empty handed with my head hanging in shame. You are a god among men.

Wow, I really hope this works, but either way, thank you for the post and the detailed instructions and screenshots. I fought with this error last night and I finally walked away totally dejected.

I used this article to install a printer a few months ago on a macbook, since then I have tried installing the printer again and in the the "Connect to the printer '[printername]' as" box I simply entered guest as the username and left the password field blank and it seemed to work the same as manually adding the printer.
