Hello All,

Just thought this may be on some use to people here on the list. If you
haven't checked much into the workings of hplip it is worth your time to
read up on this if you are using any hp jetdirect printers or usb hp
printers. Of course 'way back' this piece was very iffy.It's all on your
k12ltsp server installed by default, BTW. Now, once set up correctly you
can view all of your hp printers , networked as well as hanging off of a
usb TC,all in one interface. It's easy now to set up the extended
functionality of the newer hp printers such as card readers to allow
users to view their memory cards with a launcher on the desktop. For
teachers for example. Shows cartridge levels,panel errors, etc,just as
if you were in front of the printer. Makes admining printers a little
*less* of a pain in the neck:) I have printers from three remote school
buildings all available now without having to drive all over creation to
see what errors are on it .
Just another of my 2 pennies:-)
Hope this helps.

Take Care,
Barry Cisna
