HP JetDirect printer server
Posted on 1997-04-29
I have installed an HP JetDirect EX external printer server on our LAN. Connected to it is a HP color deskjet printer. My Mac is also on the LAN and I have ethertalk/appletalk installed. I have installed the color deskjet printer driver software, and also the JetDirect support software (which is actually a laserjet utility). But neither the JetDirect utility nor the mac's chooser will "see" the hardware. Is it not possible to print from the mac over the LAN using this hardware? If not, why not? I can print from the mac to an HP laserjet (with an internal nic) on the same LAN. The JetDirect's ethertalk interface is "ready". Help!
