Question about Hawking (HMPS1U) Print Server

Open Question

HMPS1U print server doesn't work for the Cannon

I have been able to get the HMPS1U print server to work on another printer, but I would like to have it work for the Cannon Imageclass D780.

The Cannon is a multi-function USB printer/copier. Unfortunately the Cannon printer requires that Bidirectional Support be enabled in order to print.
If I enable Bi-directional Support and connect the Cannon printer to the HMPS1U, the Cannon's status window gives me this error:
"Incorrect Port: The Device is connected to a port which is not supported. Check the port."

On the printer that works with HMPS1U, if I enable Bi-directional Support, I can still print through the print server. The first document printed prints immediately, but then the print queue gets clogged with other items (that disappear after several minutes). If I DISABLE bi-directional support, I can print through the print server perfectly on that printer.

After talking with the Hawking tech support, I have set up the printer port manually to these settings as per tech support's instructions:

Port name: USB1_LPR
IP Address: (the one that shows when the Hawking software utility is used)
Protocol: LPR
Queue Name: USB1_LQ
In the printer properties it is set to "use printer online"

I am using Windows XP professional.

thanks

Factory reset


Chapter15 The Init Button
The Init button is used for maintenance: Simultaneously press Init button and turn on (by plugging
in the power adaptor) the Server until USB1 LED indicator simultaneously blinks. After that, the
Server will do the following tasks:
A. Perform a Factory Default of the MFP server, which will restore most of the parameters and
settings to factory default values,
B. Perform a TFTP server. You can upgrade new firmware using any TFTP client tool.
Note: After performing the tasks mentioned above, you have to unplug the power adaptor and then
plug in the power adaptor to restart the Server.

try turning off both devices - start you computer first, then start your printer and see if that fixes your issue. if not try again this time leaving out the plug that connects the computer to the printer and then when the computer is turned on turn on the printer then plug it into the computer

I've configured my desktop Brother HL2040 to share but I can't print from my laptop.


Make sure you've got the firewall set to allow printing on the computer working as a print server.

Another simple solution is to pick up an ethernet or wireless print server unit. It's going to cost more, but it's typically very reliable, and doesn't depend on another computer for printing.
