I have been searching for an answer for days now, thought it was time to ask! I have just setup my first ubuntu server, everything is working perfect. I have internet connection, I can ping every computer on our network but I cannot for the life of me figure out how to add a network attached printer under CUPS or HPLIP.
I have two HP printers, one attached to a computer at 192.168.1.8 and one attached to a computer at 192.168.1.24. We have 8 windows computers on our network, every one of them can find, view and print. I can ping both of these IP addresses successfully from the ubuntu box, why can I not get these printers to work?
HPLIP returns: "warning: No devices found on the 'net' bus. If this isn't the result you are expecting, warning: check your network connections and make sure your internet warning: firewall software is disabled."
Find New Printers button on CUPS returns: "No printers found."
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
