Problem: all spreadsheet data is in Improv in my NeXT ... and my last printer has stopped working.

Question: Can I network my NeXT (running OS 3.3) with my iBook G4 (running OSX 10.4.11) in order to use the iBook as a conduit to its printer?

Any short-term solution to this problem would be appreciated. In the long-term, it would be beyond my fondest hopes to find a way to run Improv on current hardware.

I simulate an HP JetDirect server with Linux/CUPS, then I can print from NeXTstation to an HP Deskjet printer.
To do this, I use inetd. In MacOSX inetd was substitute by launchd: http://developer.apple.com/macosx/launchd.html

http://developer.apple.com/documentation/Darwin/Reference/ManPages/man8/launchd.8.html

For me, the configuration in inetd appears like this:


9100 stream tcp nowait lp /usr/bin/lp lp -d < printer name >

Thanks, Shuren. Anyone else have any inspirations? I am open to any and all suggestions.
