Maintenance Utility for HP designjet 130nr

If it's a 130n, then it should have a network connection. If you're connecting it via network, then can you not just access the controls by typing the printer's IP address into your browser?
Many printers work this way, particularly HPs.

On a related topic, my HP Laserjet 2100's "Utility" Application is stuck in the Classic age. Although the printer has an HTTP server, it really doesn't like Safari and to do anything non-trial requires ActiveX (Windows + IE only) anyway. However, you can do almost anything with this printer (and presumably others) over a telnet connection. Using Terminal just telnet to your printer's IP address to open a dialog in which you can query existing settings and change them as required.

actually the direct way of accessing the web interface via the printer ip is not working for HP printers.
This is why there's the necessity to wake up the printer web interface panel via this utility.
