Sharing printer not working

Philip O had some problems with my how-to article “Fit to print:Share printers across platforms” published in the March 2004 issue of Australian Macworld.

After successfully following the instructions on his computer which was running Mac OS X 10.3 at the time he was able to share his printer with other computers on his network. However after upgrading his computer to Mac OS 10.3.3 it stopped working.

The solution turned out to be disabling printer sharing (in Sharing in System Preferences) and re-enabling it. Simple but effective
