HP 4650 network printing issues
Posted on 2004-11-04
Hi, a new HP 4650 has been delivered yesterday.
I connected the printer to my parallel port, installed the drivers and it worked just fine.
Then I put the printer in the network using fixed ip settings (I know, yuk)
It appears the printer is in the network fine because i can browse to it's web interface, i can ftp to the built in ftp server, i can ping it and if I run the HP setup tool and scan for printers on the network it gets autodetected and it installs fine.
upon printing a test page (or printing anything for that matter) the printer never receives data (the light isn't blinking, nothing is printing)
I'd suppose the printer isn't faulty as it prints over lpt, I don't think the network card is faulty since i can ping etc.
Any pointers ?
my os is XP sp2 (I've tried disabling the firewall but that didn't help)
