Mobile Printing for Notebooks
HP Mobile Printing for Notebooks (formally known as HP Mobile Printing Driver) is a software solution designed to facilitate printing from mobile notebook computers to network-connected Postscript-enabled HP printers.
As the notebook user moves around within the enterprise from floor to floor or from site to site, there is a need to print to networked printers that are encountered while away from the desk. HP Mobile Printing for Notebooks allows easy printing access to these newly encountered printers. There is no need to locate the printer driver or create a new network port. The user simply selects the HP Mobile Printing application, enters the network address (IP Address, hostname, or UNC pathname) of the target printer when prompted, and the print job is sent to the printer.

A Web JetAdmin plug-in has been developed to allow IT administrators to remotely enable display of the printer IP address on the printer control panel display. To download this plug-in, please visit the HP web jetadmin software and components download site.
If the printer IP address is not displayed, you may determine the IP address by printing a Configuration Page from the printer control panel menu.
