Network printer not working in XP Mode

I am trying to get a printer to work in XP Mode on a Windows 7 computer. The printer is an HP Laserjet 3055 that is networked.

There are no errors when Adding the printer or when printing, the document just sits in the queue until it times out.

I have downloaded the latest drivers from HP and added the printer through discovery as well as adding it manually via IP address. All results are the same, it 'finds' the printer but the document gets stuck.

How do I get this connected correctly in XP Mode.

Try disabling bidirectional communication in the driver ports tab

Hi,

Does a test page print?  And bidirectional may be the issue.

I does not print a test page. The test page goes into the printer queue then times out after a few minutes.

I will try the bidirectional.

I checked the printer setting, and bidirectional communication is already off. It is actually greyed out.
