DutchPuppy,

The info MagicZaurus posted could be useful since his/her printer is one of those that requires a plugin ???

Would have been nice if she/he included a link to the software he/she mentioned.

Until that happens, if you like to experiment there are earlier versions available of hplip_scan-3.14.10.pet and hplip_print-3.14.10.pet that ariel just posted today in the Drivers section of the forum

Hi,

I still have the pets, but the 3.14 versions should also work. My experience is based on Tahrpup 6.0.5. My advise would be to get printing to work first and then only look at scanning.

Most important is that you disable the Puppy Firewall. By default I think the port CUPS uses for network printing is blocked. After printing is working the firewall can be configured correct, but for testing the best is to totally disable it.

Try to do a port scan on the IP address of the printer. You should see port 631 there. At least that was the case for me and this is the port used by CUPS.

Then you go to the CUPS web interface (localhost:631 in your browser) and Add Printer. I was able to see my printer there.

If you need more help, I might have more time next week.

I have installed the hplip_print 3.14.10,pet
Did a reboot, closed the firewall and opened CUPS from the setup -> CUPS printer wizard. Under administration i tried to find printers, but no printer was found. When adding a printer i do not exactly know what to do with this WiFi connected printer....

Hi,

I just tested the following. I booted Tahrpup 6.0.5 with pfix=ram, so in pure original condition. Then I open Cups Printer Wizard found in the Setup menu. This will open the browser at localhost:631/. I select Adding Printers and Classes and then on the next page Find New Printers. This already shows the HP M475dn without installing anything. When adding the printer I cannot proceed, as I cannot find the correct driver, but discovery of the printer worked.

Then I installed the hpliplite 3.16.9 and added the printer in CUPS. As my model doesn't show up in the driver list, I selected HP LaserJet Series PCL 4/5 and managed to print a test page successful.

I suspect it is important that CUPS can detect your printer over Wifi.

CUPS version here on Tahrpup 6.0.5 is 1.4.8.

I think I recall rcrsn51 once suggesting that it is best to install your printer via usb first, then change it to a network connection second. As far as I can tell the 225W has a usb port as well as wifi.

Is it a possibility for you to connect via usb, get the driver correctly installed, then we can find the instructions to switch the connection to wifi?

EDIT : also - you may be able to try the manual procedure for CUPS detection mentioned by rcrsn51 in his post here:
Quote:
5. CUPS will auto-detect some, but not all, networked printers. If yours is not detected, use the following manual install procedure:
a. Run PeasyPort and scan your network for Port 9100. Get the IP address of the printer.
b. Start the CUPS wizard and open the Add Printer page.
c. Select the protocol AppSocket/JetDirect
d. Enter the Connection URI as: socket://aaa.bbb.cc.dd:9100

PostPosted: Tue 25 Oct 2016, 21:58    Post subject: HP Printing Ports  

Hi,

you can also do a port scan for the IP address of the printer connected to your Wifi network. In my case the following ports are active.

Quote:
xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx : 80
xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx : 81
xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx : 82
xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx : 83
xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx : 443
xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx : 515
xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx : 631


Port 631 is used for Internet Printing Protocol. I assume this is what CUPS in my case uses to communicate and print.

For scanning PeasyScan also doesn't detect my HP, but I can scan by providing the IP address in a config file. Printing and scanning are working on different ports.
