View Full Version : This Print Share Is Not Accessible

1st January 2008, 06:07 PM
I have a home network setup with an XP machine (, named intel-p4), FC8 machine (, named pavilion), and an HP Officejet 6310 called "HP4CC017" on the Windows network with work group name mshome. The Officejet is installed on the network ( vice running off the XP machine. I want to be able to print from the FC8 machine as I can now with the XP box. I can ping the XP and Officejet from the FC8, but I'm unable to set up the printer using the printer configuration tool.

I try to add a printer with connection "windows printer via samba" and specify "mshome/hp4cc017" and the response is always "print share is not accessible". If I use the option "other" in the connection type, and specify smb://hp4cc017, or smb://pavilion/hp4cc017, I am unable to print a test print. The utility doesn't seem to recognize any designation I can think of for the URL. I've added ":631" to the HP4CC017 designation, suggested in another post, but that didn't work either. I changed SELinux status from enforcing to permissive, but this has had no effect either. What should the Device URL look like?

Not sure does this printer have a wired ethernet port and if so is this the way you have it connected using a network cable and not a USB cable?

Yes Brian, it has it's own NIC and is cable connected to the router; no USB involved.

Lets see if HPLIP package is installed. Use this command. ' rpm -qa | grep hplip '
First way. If present run this command as root as root run this command ' hp-setup '
Select network one and then next.
Will more than likely not find it so select the box Find Manually and enter based on your info.
Should find it and then Next to the next page and going to finish.

Second way
If present run this command as root. ' hp-makeuri ' based on IP you mentioned.
Should get something like this.
CUPS URI: hp:/net/Photosmart_3300_series?ip=
SANE URI: hpaio:/net/Photosmart_3300_series?ip=
HP Fax URI: hpfax:/net/Photosmart_3300_series?ip=

Now open a Web Browser and enter ' '
Select Add Printer
Enter name of choice for the first two blanks. Cleck next.
Select Appsocket/JetDirect
URI will be the CUPS URI Example from mine. hp:/net/Photosmart_3300_series?ip=
Save and test print page.

Thanks Brian!!! HPLIP did the trick after it was properly installed. It spit out a CUPS v1.3.x printer test page in no time. Really appreciate your time and insight.
