Enable wireless printing to an HP LaserJet 6MP
Authored by: winstonsmith on Sep 26, '04 04:48:50PM

Here's how I got IPP printing to work with my Hawking HPS12U (like the
HPS1 + 2 USB ports) and HP LaserJet 6MP. I pointed my browser to the
print server, used the Setup Wizard to set the PORT1 Name to 'ipp/HP' and
saved that setting (which included the browser rebooting the print server).
I then used the Printer Setup Utility to add a printer at that IP location
and with a queue name 'HP' (sans 'ipp/').

I don't understand why the Printer Setup Utility insists on inserting that
'ipp/' in the CUPS DeviceURI, but it does...at least on my new G5 10.3.5
system. It didn't do that to me on my G4 10.3.x system (which is now
running 10.3.5, but probably wasn't when I originally got IPP printing
set up). I figured this out by looking at the /etc/cups/printers.conf file
on the two machines.

Ah, now I remember! I used CUPS to configure my G4 printer, not the
Mac Printer Setup Utility. Connect browser to http://127.0.0.1:631/ and
Manage Printers. Etc. E.g, set a DeviceURI = ip p://192.168.xx.yy/lpt1.
A second way to get IPP printing working.
