Runing an HP on a print server
Posted on 2005-03-09
Ok, I am trying to use an HP PSC 2210 on a customers network. To get the printer to work with the print server you have to manually install the drivers by pointing to an inf file containing the driver information.
Problem is, from what I can tell HP hides the driver files in their monsterous setup utilities, a scan of the CD for inf files did not bring up anything, i even checked the cab files to no avail. The only available driver on their website is the install file again, they do not have a basic installation that you can use an inf file with.
Last piece of info, installing the drivers from the cd and then trying to manually set up the print server does not work, and it would be horrible to go through that on all 5 computers anyways. Basically my question is where can i get these files, i realize that with the basic drivers scan and fax functions will not work, but thats not an issue. I have heard someone refer to them as corperate drivers and that somehow you can get them but a call to tech support just hightened my frustration.
ps, the print server is a d-link usb print server (even though it shouldnt be relavent)
