hi, i try to install this  P2015dn (network printer, only RG45 connect) on a windows 98 se PC. i am able to install the printer if i say i am using LPT1 port, but after that i want to connect it using the network, i install LPR and configur the ip address but i am missing the QUEUE.

let say my printer address is
192.168.0.99  what would be the queue ?

thanks

Once you have configured the EWS settings on the printer and connected it directly to a network port the driver installation on a PC on the same network should create these settings for you.

The queue name for the printer will print on the Configuration or Network Configuration page in many makes and models.  If those pages aren't available or don't include the name then try to ping the IP of the printer and look at the top of the response.  If that doesn't work either then the IP address will often work for those models.

Let me know if you have a question or need more information.

bol,  i know the ip adress what i need is either the  port name  or queue name.

when using LPR in win98 you need those 2 information it not like when you print on a network print in RAW mode.  in win 98 it is in LPR mode and i need those 2 info,  and i dont have them on the configuration page.


MASQUERAID    find me and tell me exactly where they explaine how to connect from a windows 98 ?

I know what you are talking about.  LPR needs that in not just Windows 98.  What I said wasn't specific to an OS but for LPR.  What were the results when you pinged the printer?  Look at the very top or post all of the results here.

FYI - RAW refers to something completely different from LPR.  LPR is a type of port, RAW is the "format" of the data.

You might look for a line called HostName in one of those configuration pages.  That might also be used.

The reason the print processor (i.e. RAW) is often associated with the queue name is that can be a name, often the default.  For HP printers I have used the IP address but raw (needs to be lowercase) can often be used.  In printers that have different queues the name is very important but the model you mentioned should not be picky.  It doesn't allow you to set up different queues.

Let me know if you have a question.

bol and the hostname   would be     the port name i need ?   i will need to go back to my customer to try a couple thing.   if it is the hostname i try this and it did not work.

i forget to mention when i install with the CD it stop and tell me my OS is not support, it only support from win2000 and up.  thats why i really like to hear from someone that make this HP P2015dn  work on win98.

thanks
