Per this doc, it should work:
But when I start the writer, I get
CPD401A - Could not establish SNMP communications with device
Cause . . . . . : Was not able to establish SNMP communications with
PRTAPCKML. The reason code is 1. The reason codes and their meanings are
as follows: 1 - The device appears to be an SNMP device but not a printer.
SNMP community name is just the default of public.
PJL Driver works...but I'd really like to use SNMP... I just can't seem to
ever get it to work.
Anybody have any ideas?
