Using SNMPv3 on HP Net Printer with Linux Mint 20.1

Asked by Greg Zingler on 2021-05-30

I have the HP MFP M225DN. I discovered after some troubleshooting that when I use this printer as a Network Printer, if I disable SNMP v1/v2, and enable SNMP v3, on my Linux Mint 20.1 workstation, it will stop being able to communicate with the printer, Error 5012. I did a lot of searching but most results are getting error 5012 for different reasons.

I have installed the latest HPLIP 3.21.4.

Is there a way to get this working either without SNMP or at least with SNMP v3?

I prefer better security whenever possible.
