Problem With Hp Psc1610 On Network


Recommended Posts

Well at work we bought this officejet.We have win2k on servers and on printserver (running also win2k) is sharing this.The terminals are running win98se but can't print

through the officejet.When I install drivers on them for the printer they're searching for it on the usb port.Tried to download other drivers but I can only order them in cd from hp (which I think are the same as mine).

What drivers to install??

Anyone know sth?

Please... :unsure:

I don't think an officejet acts any different in a network as other printers (for the printing part that is). I think that after installing the bundled driver you should be able to add a localport named \\servername\share-name and point the driver to that location. Additional software for scanning and faxing won't work as that requires a direct connection to the printer.

If you want to use all functions in your network you should purchase a network-officejet.

Hp typically locks their products unless you purchase HP's Print Server device for your particular unit.

I came across a similar issue with an Office Jet G85


Of course you checked your file and print sharing, as well as your permissions?
