Gibt es da ein workaround ? Das HP easy setup ist ja anscheinend bloss eine dumme software, die die eigentlichen Treiber runterlaedt nachdem es den Druckertyp identifiziert hat. Ich finde aber online nicht die eigentlichen Treiber. Evtl. haben die ja nicht dieselbe dumme Beschraenkung.
I bought Photosmart 5180/7180 a decade ago and their HP drivers for windows had the same unbelievable frustrating limitation so that i could only manage to use these printers with Windows/Mac-OS provided drivers and web-scan, but not with HP software. Now i want to buy new printers, looking into officejet 7740 - and the same unbelievable frustrating limitation is still built into the software:
I need to be able to install the software on Windows/Mac computers that are not on the same LAN as the printer. The network connection to the printer is of course perfect, i can access the printer via its web interface fine (and with windows/mac drivers it works fine too). But when i start HP Easy Start and enter the IP address into the search field, i get:
The 192.168.x.y IP address is not reachable.
The IP address you provided is located on a different IP network and cannot be accessed from your Mac.
Unbelievable. And that from a company that is selling networking equipment.
