Helios Software today announced the release of the Helios TCP/IP based printer driver for Mac OS X that further enhances its 4th generation EtherShare 3.1 file and print server software. The new driver is a component of the recently released EtherShare 3.1, which enables Mac OS 9 clients to print up to three times faster than AppleTalk PAP or Apple Remote LPR, according to the press release. It is now also available for Mac OS X clients and is integrated within the Mac OS X Print Center and supports Service Location Protocol (SLP) browsing, enabling the easy selection of printers via the TCP/SLP Chooser list or by IP name/address. It also automates PPD (PostScript Printer Description) installation from the HELIOS print spooler.
