Checking for CUPS...
Status: Scheduler wird ausgeführt
Version: 1.3.9
error_log is set to level: warn
note: For troubleshooting printing issues, it is best to have the CUPS 'LogLevel'
note: set to 'debug'. To set the LogLevel to debug, edit the file /etc/cups/cupsd.conf (as root),
note: and change the line near the top of the file that begins with 'LogLevel' to read:
note: LogLevel debug
note: Save the file and then restart CUPS (see your OS/distro docs on how to restart CUPS).
note: Now, when you print, helpful debug information will be saved to the file:
note: /var/log/cups/error_log
note: You can monitor this file by running this command in a console/shell:
note: tail -f /var/log/cups/error_log

What is the make/model of your WLAN print server?

HPLIP only supports HP Jetdirect network print sharing devices. Third party network print servers do not usually allow the correct port communication to work with HPLIP and therefore are unsupported.

Thanks for your support of HPLIP--we appreciate it.
