Hi

Thanks in advance for any replies.

I am trying to set up a freebsd 7.2 p3 system to be able to print from
an hp laserjet 2200dn equipped with a built in 10/100 jetdirect 610N. The 
printer is also used by a number of MS$ systems on the same subnet as the 
server so I know the printer is working and configured to print both text and 
graphics and to use the double sided facility. I need to use similar 
facilities from the server.

On the windows XP systems the printer is identified by a port entry in the 
form "[my_device].[my_domain].[my_tld]:HP LaserJet 2200" in the printer 
properties. The HP JetDirect Configuration report includes the following info:

Model Number: J4169A
Firmware Version: L.20.24

Under TCP/IP we have:
Hostname: [mydevice]
Domain Name: [my_domain].[my_tld]
# The following all show correct entries:
Ip Address:
Subnet Mask:
Default Gateway:
DNS Server:



Despite reading the documentation I seem to be having difficulty setting up 
the printer from the server. So far I have not been able to get the beast to 
print-- I have scrapped all attempts at configuring the server and would 
appreciate some guidance before I trying again!!

Thanks 

David
