Missing IP Address in Lookup

Trying to add an HP Laserjet 4240 printer as an NDPS printer on a Netware
5.1 server. I have set the IP address on the printers internal card and can
ping it from anywhere on the network, I can also access it's internal
management through a web browser. My problem is when I go into NWAdmin to
create an NDPS printer, I step through to the point where I select the
Gateway Type as an "Hewlett-Packard IP/IPX Printer Gateway". I then click
on the IP Printer box and I don't see my printers IP address in the list, I
see all my existing ones. Why is this not showing up?

I'm pretty certain that you have to fill in the IP address yourself when
creating a new printer. After you select the IP Printer box then at the
bottom of the screen select Specify address and type in the IP address.

Also, I believe it is recommended to use the Novell gateway instead of HP's.
They discontinued support long ago (it also was less stable).

Most of the time the IP address is in the list and I just pick it and it
works. If I specify the address, it will create the printer, but it always
says "Error Printing, I/O Error" on the NDPS Manager screen on the server.
Also, the only Novell Gateway I have is Novell SNMP, don't think I want
that.

For what it's worth, the Novell Gateway here is not the SNMP version. Ours
shows up as "Novell Printer Gateway" in NWAdmin. We do not have the Novell
Gateway running. Adding printers by typing in the ip address works like a
charm here. NW51SP7, HP Gate v2.00, NDPSM v3.01b. I don't have a 4240 to
verify that that model works. We do have some 4250s that work fine.

Good luck.
