URGENT: Can't download HP driver

HP site annoys me terribly. 90% of the time I can't download any drivers, but get an error instead. Don't really care about reasons; this is the only provider I can't download drivers from.

I need PCL6:

"Direct" link: http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareDescription.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodTypeId=18972&prodSeriesId=1845551&prodNameId=1845561&swEnvOID=4063&swLang=8&mode=2&taskId=135&swItem=ja-45285-18

On none of my PCs, servers, browsers, this doesn't work.

Could please someone upload this for me, so I can get it?

I've stopped gotten away from the print driver mess. If the printer supports PCL 5 or 6, you can use the HP's Universal Print Driver (UPD). It's available here: http://www.hp.com/go/upd. The advantage of the UPD is it's available for all supported versions of Windows (32 and 64 bit editions). Plus it supports a lots of different HP models. And it's very unlikely that HP won't support it going forward to newer OSes.

it would appear there is a fault on the HP ftp server, the files are not there on the ftp site.

Notify HP.

it would appear that the files are missing on the ftp server.

ftp://ftp.hp.com//pub/softlib/software12/COL17053/ja-45285-19/upd-PCL6-X64-5_2_6_9321.exe

nahccocka: Yeah. Interesting how often I encounter this problem.
It not only annoying, but it completely pisses me off. Lost an hour today trying to get this driver. HP is the only manufacturer that has a driver download _workaround_. Idiots.

Will try with your driver tomorrow.

I have the PCL6 driver for windows server 2003. if you want i can upload it somewhere for you. You can download it, install and share on a print server. Any OS on the network would then be able to print to it once they add the printer to their machine.

szichen - can you use fileconvoy.com ? I will be able to get it 12 from now GMT+1, 12H.

connectex - all fine, but would ti work with networked (LAN) printers? And the other problems are the users; changes are _not_ good.

The UPD supports local and networked installations. For example at one site I use it for all but on HP printer model. Another site we use it for three networked models. Works great but yes it is a change but it will be the last of having xx different printer drivers.
