This is a Black and White duplex printer with its own Jetdirect network card allowing you to print to it over the network. It should not be connected to on the parallel or USB ports

  • Static IP address allocated via DHCP:
  • Status: Working. (any issues contact Sully)
  • Duplex (2 sided) printing - Under installable options on your printer configuration set "Duplex Unit (for 2-sided printing)" to "installed"

Driver: HP Laserjet 2200 driver comes with most operating systems. You can use a PCL or Postscript driver.

It's auto discoverable via mDNS from Mac OS, Windows 7, Linux and various other operating systems.

If you need to set it manually the hostname is caxton and the ip address is It supports HP Raw printing, LPD and IPP via ipp://

When setting a printer up manually configure it to connect to a printer over the network to the hostname "caxton" or if necessary the IP address, then if prompted select HP Raw printing, LPD or ipp and then select HP Laserjet 2200 (PCL or Postscript) as the print driver.

Recycling cartridges

Please don't thrown them in the bin, we have now a simple process for this:

- use the already printed postage-paid forms you'll find on the office file shelf, under the sticker called "Recycling forms" (in the main room, on the left of Tesla)

- Use the new toner's box to recycle the old one and stick the postage-paid form on it. Then drop it to the post office

- Alternatively you can print your own forms on HP recycle's site here.

Other Inventory

We also have many thermel recipt printers.

Note on babbage

The version of ubuntu we run on babbage has a bug that means it dosn't share printers via dns-sd (aka rendevous, bonjour, mdns), see this:

Looks like this works now (?)
