Cannot connect to printer over network from Linux

HP Recommended
HP Officejet Pro 8625
Linux

When I run hp-setup, I can get the printer listed but it appears to refuse to communicate with the device. Same problem for wired ethernet as well as wireless.

 

Please help, I think I have tried everything by now...

 

Firewall disabled on the workstation does not help. Talking to the printers web interface (:8080) works perfectly. The printer works perfectly via USB. Also works fine from another windows PC (networked)

 

System:

Linux Mint 17 - X86_64 (up to date)

 

uninstalled the mint hplip package and installed the latest from HP manually....

Some additional information:

 

Switching to DHCP does not make any difference

 

Removing my old printer (Officejet_Pro_L7600"Officejet_Pro_L7600) from the network doesn't maker a difference either

 

 

Please let me know if I can provide adiotional info....

Hello,

 

I had the same problem. Ther printer works perfect using a windows client but shows the error message "Unable to communicate with device (code=12)" under Linux.

 

I had disabled all not needed services on the printer during initial setup. After I re-enabled SNMPv2 (read only), the printer now works. I guess the linux driver needs SNMPv2 to get some information from the printer...

 

 

Hope this is helpful,

best regards,

Florian
