- HP ePrint Driver
The HP ePrint driver makes it easy to print from a desktop or laptop computer to any HP ePrint capable product. After installing the driver on your PC/laptop, all you need to do is click File and Print from within any application and select "HP ePrint" from the installed printers list. The HP ePrint dialog will open and allow you print to any ePrint capable printer you have added to your HP ePrintCenter account.
To use the HP ePrint driver you have to create an account on www.hpePrintCenter.com and add your ePrint-capable printer to your ePrintCenter account. Then when you install the ePrint Mobile Driver it will ask you for your HPePrintCenter.com log-in email address so it can find the ePrint printer(s) on your ePrintCenter account.
The printer you select to print to can be at your desk or in a remote location such as a branch office or across the globe at your mom's house—you can do remote printing by using the Internet without file type or size limitations. The printer can be anywhere in the world: If it is Web-connected and registered in ePrintCenter on your account, you can send a print job to it.
In addition, the HP ePrint driver for Windows also supports traditional direct IP printing to local network printers on the network (LAN or WAN) to supported PostScript® products.

This is useful information -- thanks. But I seem to have got very close to having the printer (HP C7280) work off my iPad2. I can print the documents that are in the iPrint App itself (ones I put there by sending them from my iTunes). But I can't get them from any other apps to the iPrint. I've tried from Pages (though I did not expect that to work since Apple likes to keep files in the family) and Goodreader and DropBox and Safari and Mail (attachments). They all complain that they cannot find any printer. Strange that the printer shows up in the HP iPrint App but nowhere else. Also it does not show up when I try "Open In" -- only Dropbox and GoodReader show up there. I have tried changing all my wireless settings bu thatdoes not help. Very odd.
