Special thanks to : Sanjay Waghode from caxton

and all the others.

As Sanjay has specified -:

"You may get that error which you have mentioned if you are not using the
card in the printer or hp external server .but you may be running some other
print server. Try ignoring that msg. You are getting . Select continue and
then select option 2nd Ie. Ignore it and continue . it will work I have
done the same and I don't have any problem with printing .
 Using the above option you can only use basic service of printing , and not
other services provided by the jetadmin software . i.e printer management ."



I had downloaded HP JetAdmin version 6.21 and when running "jetadmin" and
Option (1) Configuration and then Option (3) "Add printer to local
where I'm entering printer name I get the following messag:

        !! No response from fiadmp2 !!
       ........(trying to ping fiadmp2)

      The HP JetAdmin utility can ping the device. The problem may be:
                        * incorrect GET community name!
                        * it is not a network printer!
                        * other.

One thing for sure is that "fiadmp2" is a network printer and I could ping
it by
ip/printername. But I don't understand what's going on here? I'm running
solaris 2.5.1
from Sparc5.

Your help will be very appreciated.

Thanks in advance.
