HP Designjet T790 and T1300 ePrinter Series - Connect a computer to the printer by USB cable (Mac OS)

You can connect your printer directly to a computer without going through a network, by using the printer's built-in Hi-Speed USB device port.
Printer software installation
The following instructions apply if you intend to print from software applications using a printer driver. See PrintingPrinting for alternative ways of printing.
  1. Make sure the printer is either turned off, or disconnected from the computer.
  2. Insert the HP Start-up Kit DVD into your DVD drive.
  3. Open the DVD icon on your desktop.
  4. Open the Mac OS X HP Designjet Installer.
  5. Follow the instructions on your screen.
  6. The printer software is installed, including the printer driver and the HP Utility.
  7. Make sure that the printer is turned on and connected to the computer with a certified USB cable.
      note:
    The use of non-certified USB cables can lead to connectivity problems. Only cables certified by the USB Implementor's Forum (http://www.usb.org/) should be used with this printer.
  8. Shortly afterwards, a print queue is created automatically for your printer.
Sharing the printer
If your computer is connected to a network, you can make your directly connected printer available to other computers on the same network.
  1. Double-click the System Preferences icon on the Dock menu bar on your desktop.
  2. To enable printer sharing, go Sharing, select Printer Sharing, and then check the printer(s) that you want to share.
  3. Your printer now automatically appears in the list of shared printers displayed by any other computer running Mac OS and connected to your local network.
Please bear in mind the following considerations.
  • Any other users wishing to share your printer must install the printer software on their own computers.
  • Anyone sharing your directly connected printer will be able to send print jobs, but will not be able to receive information from the printer—which affects alerts, status reports, paper management, administration and troubleshooting.
  • You may find that sharing your directly connected printer with other users will slow down your computer unacceptably.
  note:
The best way to share the printer over a network is to connect the printer not to any computer, but to the network. See Connect a computer to the printer by network (Mac OS)Connect a computer to the printer by network (Mac OS).
