Applies To
HPLIP Version:

Linux OS Distribution(s): 

hp-makeuri won't generate a device URI

  1. Check to make sure SNMP is properly installed. Check your distribution documnetation on how to do this.
  2. Check your network firewall and make sure it is configured so that access to port 9100 is not blocked.
  3. Make sure the printer is powered on, and that the network cable is pluged into the printer and configured correctly.
