HP designjet 1050 printer
Microsoft Windows 7 (32-bit)

Hi Guys,


Really struggling to set up a HP 1050 printer to a PC and print from Illustrator / photoshop etc.


Using an ethernet cable ( as I cant see any other printer connection on the machine??)


Any help appreciated.

Under the setup icon on the printer control panel you should be able to find the ip address of the eio network card. You will use that. There is a parallel interface out if your computer has a parallel interface. It is located in the back below the network area. You have to sort of get down on your knees to see it as it is below the ledge.
