Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I can not see my Network Printer in the directory.

A user just told me he can not see his printer in the list when he goes to try and install it to his local machine.
I can ping the printer and bring it up in the internet using the IP, but I can not see it in the Printserver directory where all of our printers are stored.
How do I make it reappear or what happened to it.
Thanks,George

    I already fixed it, I used the driver to run me through the install process and yes the manual installation would have worked as well. Thanks for the feedback.

Hp color laserjet 2550l need driver for my mac


Sir/Madam

The latest HP printer driver for devices listed below are built into Mac OS X 10.6. You do not need to download or reinstall any HP software for full printing functionality.
HP LaserJet print drivers are included in Apple's Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard DVD and also available via Apple Software Updates.

Please Visit official HP Printer website Below Link URL:
http://h20566.www2.hp.com/portal/site/hpsc/template.PAGE/public/kb/docDisplay/?spf_p.tpst=kbDocDisplay&spf_p.prp_kbDocDisplay=wsrp-navigationalState%3DdocId%253Demr_na-c01844302-4%257CdocLocale%253D%257CcalledBy%253D&javax.portlet.begCacheTok=com.vignette.cachetoken&javax.portlet.endCacheTok=com.vignette.cachetoken#N1000E

Workloc directory is invalid or cannot be created (server 2003 install of p3.1)


I have 2 suggestions based on my assumptions since you did not elaborate on what environment you are having your P3, network or single user.
1. If you are logging on a network before you open your P3, it is most likely that you don’t have a read and write access to the P3WIN directory or any of its subfolders. So, first you have to log into your computer as an administrator, we call it local administration, and go to windows explorer, right click the P3 directory and choose sharing and security on the pop-up. Add your Network ID or make sure your network ID has all the access enabled for these directories. Then you can go back to the network and restart P3.
2. If it is single user, check your P3.ini located on Windows directory and see if the WORKLOC directory is beyond 54 characters from the root directory. P3 was created in the 90’s when DOS was still one of the reigning OS. So it means it follows the 8+3 rule of filenaming and other limitations. Make sure that the directory listed is as near as possible to the root directory, that is from C:\ Many errors in P3 are caused by these limitations since we’re already used with the new Windows OS’s wherein you can almost create a folder with endless description. My suggestion is, in using P3, try to minimize your folder names to 8 characters, same goes with filenaming.

Need to specify user id before I can fax


This is setup when adding the scanner as a network scanner during the inital installation. The only way I have found to fix this issue to uninstall and reinstall the network printer driver. When going thur setup for the scanner and it asks for a User ID type one in. You can also choose to use a pin or leave blank to not use a pin. Once you have reinstalled, the User ID will then appear on the printer LCD.

Cant instal the printer to mi computer


Setting up or installing a printer in Microsoft Windows. Issue:Setting up or installing a printer in Microsoft Windows.
Solution:There are two different methods a user can install a printer in Microsoft Windows. Below is additional information about each of these methods listed in the order we believe a user should try installing their printer in Microsoft Windows.
Before being able to install your printer you must have the software that was included with the printer. If you've lost the software for your printer you can download the drivers for your printer and use the drivers to install your printer. A listing of printer manufacturers and links to their associated drivers pages can be found on our printer drivers page.
Setup a printer using printer software
Every printer should come with the software used to install a printer in Windows. Although not all installations are the same the steps for installing this software should be similar to the below steps.
  1. Connect the printer to the computer and a power outlet and make sure it's on.
  2. Insert the CD that was included with the printer. If the CD does not automatically start the install program open My Computer, double-click on the CD drive, and then the Setup or Install file.
  3. Follow the installation wizard and your printer and its associated software should be installed successfully.
Installing a printer only using the drivers
In addition to the above steps a users can install a printer in Windows only using the printer drivers. This is recommended if you only want the printer to be installed but not the additional printer software programs that are often included with the installation and/or you've download drivers.
A listing of printer drivers and software downloads can be found through our printer drivers page.
Note: if you've installed the printer doing the above steps these steps should not be necessary unless you encountered errors.
  1. Connect the printer to the computer and a power outlet and make sure it's on.
  2. Click Start, Settings, and Control Panel.
  3. In the control panel double-click the Printers or Printers and Fax icon.
  4. In the Printers window click the Add a printer icon.
  5. After completing the above steps the Windows Printer Wizard will appear. Click Next, to start the wizard.
  6. Windows will prompt you if you're installing a Local or Network printer. If the printer is connected to your computer choose Local printer attached to this computer and click Next.
  7. When prompted for the location of the drivers for the printer. Browse the computer to the directory of your drivers or point it to the CD that was included with your printer.
Testing the printer
After the printer has been installed in Windows you can use Windows to print a self-test page to make sure the printer is working by following the below steps.
Microsoft Windows 98, 2000, ME, XP, 2003, and Vista users
  1. Click Start, Settings, and open Control Panel.
  2. Double-click the Printers or Printers and Fax icon.
  3. Right-click on the Printer you wish to test and click Properties. If you do not see your printer listed your printer is not installed. Seedocument CH000939 for additional information about installing a printer in Windows.
  4. In the Printers Properties window click the Print Test Page button.
  5. If the printer is able to print a test page, you're printer is installed and setup properly. However, if you're unable to print in other programs it's possible that the program you're attempting to print from has issues.

You do have a wireless home network? Do you have encryption on that network, if so you have to give the printer the SSID, define your encrytion type (i.e. WEP 64/128, WAP, WAP2) and provide the key code, although I think Mac's call it a password.

  • The Hostname of the workstation must be known.
  • CentreWare 5.5x must be installed on a Microsoft Windows server or workstation on the network.

  9. Click on the [Browse] button located below the Location (\\Server\ShareName\Path) field. The Choose Location – Windows (SMB) window will be displayed.
  10. Browse to the server and then to the Scan folder where the CentreWare scanning folders will be installed, and click [OK]. The Location field will be displayed with the scan server name and the path to the shared scan folder.
