I've been working on adding an HP Designjet 500 42 (42 inch wide paper path) to a Windows 2008 R2 server that's in a workgroup. I setup the designjet500 with a static IP on the network (10.0.0.146). The server is in the same subnet... something like 10.0.0.20 and I can ping the designjet 500 from the server. I went to the HP site, downloaded the HP Designjet500 driver for Windows 2008 R2 64 Bit.
The printer added fine after setting up the static IP in TCP/IP in the Add Printer / Network Printer application.
When I try printing a test page, I get System Error 61:05 on the printer.
Just to test the printer, I downloaded the driver from HP and installed the printer in the same manner on a Windows 10 PC (10.0.0.126). It prints perfect from that PC. I've checked the printer setup, downloaded the driver again and installed the new driver but I always receive the same error when printing from the server.
Just an FYI... This should not matter but the server and Windows 10 PC are both in the same subnet but in different workgroups.
There is nothing in the printer's setup where a workgroup is added in it's tcp/ip settings, but IP, subnet mask and gateway.
Thanks in advance for your suggestions!
