4 is fine


it will send a piece of data to the pc, and it will either report back that it was there or not.

If the mac cannot connect to the PC, we will know the issue is connective rather software glitch

don't work so hard....192.168.1.100 is an internal network ip address and reveals nothing to anybody

OK, so it can see the pc

Now I have no idea....Without a Mac there is simply no way I can debug this situation

any good guesses on why the printer icon on my mac is showing the network host 192.168.1.100 is busy and that it will try again in 30 seconds. what would be giving off a busy signal from my windows pc

i think it is not so much a busy signal as the Mac cannot interpret what is going on....most that it cannot print.

thanks for your patients, i guess I’ll to have someone look at it, or just do what i've been doing is emailing my mac files to the windows pc and then printing. Some people made it sound so easy by just clicking a few boxes and the pc's should recognize everything else..ha ha ha
