Question

Need help getting my plotter to print. I've downloaded the gimp driver and I can select it. The plotter is connected to the directjet connected to the computer via ethernet crossover cable. No network.

In the printer list: what item do I select?: advanced, appletalk, etc.

I would like to be able to print directly from the computer.

thanks . . . . Ray

Not 100% positive this will work, but have you considered running through a router with straight cat5 cable? In that case you would probably look in appletalk...

By the way, I assume you have appletalk "on"? Sometimes it takes a restart to find network devices (even though it isn't supposed to).

Thanks for the prompt response Peter and Kevin.

Peter if all else fails I will try a router.

Kevin, I followed the link you gave me and will try the instructions when I go back to the office.

thanks . . . . Ray

there should be no issue with Cross Over cabling ... use the GIMP Advanced option when possible to select the printer ...

I have mine going from a router to a switch to a JetDirect box, and it works fine. I had to enter the printer's IP number in GIMP Print manually, though. In Tiger, GIMP is supposed to find the JetDirect automatically - maybe I just didn't give it enough time. (this is a number in the form of ###.###.###.###, where "###" = 0-255)

I've been using this printer since it was new, since Mac OS 9 - so OS version should not matter.
