    HP DesignJet 5500 error

    I connected a hp designjet 5500 to the network and I can not print from mac os x 10.5.8. Someone can tell me that you need to install?. From other windows computers on the same network is printed without problems.

    Thanks.

    from the system preferences choose add printer...
    insert the IP of the HP5500 (you have to configure it on the machine, make sure you choose the same range of adresses. example: 192.168.0.1 for the printer and 192.168.0.2 for the mac, same subnetwork 255.255.255.0.
    and use the default 9100 port for the printer (standard tcp/ip).

    Tcp IP configuration

    Add printer and select LPD printer, and add the ip configurated in HP 5500.
    and default port

    I'm looking for a driver so that I can use our HP DesignJet 5500 plotter. The driver that ships with MacBook Pro Mac OS X (10.4.8) is for the 5500ps, which will not work with model we have. HP does not seem to have a non-ps driver either.

    thank you.

    you can download them directly from HP.com, I was using them instead of a rip, but finally got a rip today! I really want to test it out
