    Problem with Dolev 200

    Hi all

    We have a Problem with our Dolev 200. Little Plan:

    1. Dolev 200 Imagesetter (SFL)
    2. Rip Software PS/M 7.1 original on a old Mac with OS 9.2 with SFL PCI Card
    3. 2 Client Guest Stations with OSX 10.6....
    4. Little Nerk only with Router and Switches

    Now the Problem ist we can copy a PS File to the Rip Station and put it into PS/M 7.1 and the Dolev works fine.

    But we can't send any .indd file or others directly, because we can't see the Printer on any machine. On Appletalk is nothing. PPD File are installed.

    Can any help us?

    thx whity

    OSX 10.6 does not support Appletalk

    PS/M 7 can define a Hot Folder as an AppleTalk Printer for processing incoming files, but since your clients don't support the AppleTalk protocol - you can't see it.
    There may be a workaround with an additional Print Server in-between.
    Good luck.

    If interface is scsi card can pluck it out of the mac and put it in a pc. If the card is something else so long as it uses a slot type that is available in a pc and there is a pc driver can do the same

    share hotfolders

    You can share the hotfolders mount this on the OSX machines and connect via IP. THis a works faster and if you can upgrade to psm8.1

    You can go to harlequin but youd need a different interface board the SLFPCI does NOT work in a Windows PC .

    If you go to a harlequin you miss out the SFL and bypass the VLSI board. Screening is done on harlquin but on your PSM Screening is done on the fly in the SFLPCI-VSLI.

    Because AppleTalk has been deprecated and later removed, you need to switch to TCP/IP. On the OS 9 system, go to the File Sharing Control Panel and turn on File Sharing with TCP/IP. Just click the box and OS X will connect with it. It will work only for shared folders though. It's possible to setup FTP server on OS 9 with 3rd party utility (webstar, rumpus) to allow access to shared folders from other systems as well.

    thats right you cant use any more appletalk printers on Mac Os X, you might use a Print to file option in all the programs and then copy it to the Hotfolder.
