I set my printer host name to HP8600. On my PC, I can enter the host name into the url and the HP Web Interface will come up. I am unable to do this with my Mac. I can only get to it with entering the IP. I'm using Firefox on both browsers. Do you know what could be the issue? Thank you.
It seems odd, but it doesn't look like Macs will let you do this. I tested it on mine running 10.8.3 and it wouldn't connect to my 8600 or any of my other printers using the host name. It would connect using the IP address though. It appears that Macs just do not support this feature. Sorry.
