Default How do I install the Deskjet 722C driver to function as a network printer rather than a dedicated PC parallel port printer

I've successfuly installed a network printserver connected to the parallel
port of my printer, but I'm stuck at the last step of installing the printer
driver for the printer. I can define the printer port on the network but
when I go to install the printer driver using the Printer Wizard, my Windows
98SE doesn't have the Deskjet 722C driver, so I have to select "Have Disk".
When I insert the HP disk it finds the driver on the disk but won't let me
install the driver, saying I have to install the printer driver using the
setup.exe file. Unfortunately the HP setup.exe only seems to provide
options for connecting through my PC's parallel port and gives no option
for driving through a network connection. I could try typing in the network
port name over the LPT1 name in the HPsetup.exe wizard, but I have my doubts
the HP wizard will accept it.

So close but so far. Anybody got any suggestions on where I can get a
printer driver for an HP Deskjet 722C that will allow me to install through
the Add Printer Wizard. Or is there another way around this problem I think
I have.

Thanks in advance for your time.

I thought I had a bright idea of caturing the LPT1 port in the print driver
and redirecting to the network server port, but for some reason that doesn't
seem to work.

You could connect the printer directly to the parallel port, install
it as a local printer, then connect the print server and change the
printer's port assignment.

Yes I did that, my printer driver was installed to print to LPT1 and I tried
to caputure LPT1 to my network print server port \\192.168.0.10\ps-xxxxxx-p1
, but no joy. I assume that's what you meant

It seems there may be a basic incompatibility of the print server(D-Link
DP-G301) with my printer (HP Deskjet 722C). I'm thinking this because I can
log into my print server and perform a print test and it won't print the
test page. Seems like that is where the problem lies.

I don't think that Windows 98 can access a print server using its IP
address. Windows XP can, through a "Standard TCP/IP Port".

If the print server supports Windows 98, it should have come with
software that you can install and run to create a new port that uses
the print server.

Windows 98 isn't listed on this D-Link DP-G301 web page, however:

Default How do I install the Deskjet 722C driver to function as a network printer rather than a dedicated PC parallel port printer

Thank you for your response.

The DP-G301 definitely supports Win98. The manual has a whole section on
how to create a network printer port and add a printer driver with Win98.
Everything works well except when it comes to the Add Printer wizard. The
HP driver will not allow itself to be installed by the Add Print wizard. HP
insists that you use their HPsetup.exe program to install the print driver,
but unfortunately their software does not permit the entry of a network
port.

The print driver that is created by HP in Win98 does allow for LPT port
capture, which I assigned to my previouly configured print server port.

There may be a problem with the above procedure but what bothers me even
more is that I can't get the print server itself to talk through the
parallel port to the HP 722C that it is plugged in to. I think if that
doesn't work, then nothing else matters ?
