Enable wireless printing to an HP LaserJet 6MP
Authored by: ab on Jan 22, '04 12:33:59PM

I have a LaserJet 6p, a very similar printer. I added it to my network by purchasing a Belekin Centronics to USB adapter and plugging it into the USB port of my Airport Extreme. I then treated the printer as a Jet Direct Printer on setup. The device URI is:

socket://10.0.1.1:9100/?bidi

Treating it as a Jet Direct was the only way to get my client machine to recognize the printer. The Airport would show it by it's proper name but the client machine would complain about a missing driver. Selecting Socket/Jet Direct from the Printer setup utility and putting the ip address of he Airport did the trick for me.
