    I have a HP Printer 1320 model. It is network capable.

    I assinged it a static IP address, and set all the correct network settings.
    I can ping it on my server, im trying to add it to the server.

    However, i can get it to add. It is not visible, and the stupid software they sent...seriously sucks. It doesn't do anything.

    Any ideas on A) why this printer is doing this? or B)how to install it on the server?

    i think its seriously not made to be a network capable printer. Its very annoying for a job so easy to be done.

    is it in the range of your network ip

    just what are you trying to do, physically connecting it to the server, ????????
    do you have windows 2000 or 2003 server

    The specs I read say that the HP 1320 has a USB port only. How did you assign it an IP? Or do you have a HP 1320n (with ethernet capability)?

    And, what is this "server"? A computer? A printer server? ??

    it is windows 2k3.
    it is the 1320tn (ethernet capable)
    the ip is in the network range and an available free ip.
    the "server" is out printer server that runs all the printers.

    i am not physically attaching it to the server, it is on a switch that is on our network.

    you can assign it an ip through a web based interface that is connected to the ip.

    For the HP LaserJet 1022n network ready printer you run the CD's installation software and then, when the software feels like it, you tell it to find the printer on the network. Is it the same procedure for your printer?

    Have you tried installing it on any of your other computers yet?

    problem solved.
    the crappy driver that was sent wasnt suitable for win2k3 even though it said it was.
    i downloaded the driver via HP.com and now were up and running.

    Thanks everyone for the help.
