  • 1.  Problem printing from Windows

    Posted May 06, 2008 02:31 PM

    I have installed Bonjour, but the printer that I wish to use will not show up on the list of possible printers, even after I have designated it as a shared printer. The only way I can use this printer in the Windows XP environment is to turn off the printer, switch to Windows, and then turn the printer back on. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    When the Windows XP (fusion) window is active, it will accept Plug and Play events. Powering on the printer is a plug and play event, it connects and then works. If this were a network printer, then it would work fine 100% of the time.

    You might want to check the FAQs/Documents on this, or the Fusion tutorials site.

    Hopefully this will give you some headway.

    If you're trying to use Bonjour for Windows the Fusion 1.x's Virtual Machine's Network must be set to Bridged and not the default NAT.
