Installing Network printer

Trying to install a network printer
its an all in one HP officejet 710 series
its installed locally on NT4 server
In win2k when I try to install it as a network printer. I browse to shared printer I can see it on NT4
computer, but it keeps asking for an .Inf file
The last time I did this it took me to a menu of all the printers and I chose HP deskjet
600 and it worked OK
How can I get to this menu again ?

It used to be installed locally on win95 when I did the
HP deskjet 600 trick,
since I moved printer to NT4 I cant do this
I was told that at the point that the wizard asks for the .inf file, there should be a radio button offering you the
opportunity to "list all similar devices" or a button saying "have disk".
I checked this the only thing I see is a browse button
for an *.inf file
and it wont accept any

John, you can download the driver for the win2k box in advance.  it's available from hp at:

http://www.hp.com/cgi-bin/cposupport/swdl.pl?c=oj702&i=oj702en&p=hpofficeje7260&n=hp+officejet+model+710+all-in-one

when it brings you to the browse button, browse to where you downloaded the 710 series drivers.


hope this helps!

Thanks
Thats a 24 meg .exe install file the printer is supposed to be plugged into local Ltp port
I installed that and tried to changed port to NT4 computer it asked for an IP address not a UNC mapping
I don’t think there is a driver as such.
If I could load the HP DeskJet 600 driver it would work
But I can’t get to that menu
I guess this is a hard question since you really have to be there and it’s hard to emulate without this printer and NT4 server
I initially installed this printer locally on win2k
Then I had no problem installing the network printer on other computer didn't even ask for a driver
However they told me to move it to NT4 and have other
win2k print to it  argh !!!
