Issue with HP 4215


I need some assistance please.

I have an HP Officejet 4215 printer connected via USB to a PC (Win XP SP 2). I also have another PC and a Powerbook G4 connected to my wireless home network.

Documents print fine from both the the PCs (direct and networked) to the HP printer. My problem is with the Mac.

I read in these archives that to network the Officejet to a MAC that you need to install hpijs and ESP Ghostscript- which I did.

Once I installed, I was able to see and select the HP 4200 printer in the Mac printer set-up.

When click I print, it spools up my on my PC server to 64kb and then just stops. No matter how many times I try this or options I select, it only spools to 64kb and stops.

Please email to or respond here.

I deeply appreciate your suggestions.


I just purchased the HP 4215 and can't get my iBook to print to it through XP, tried everything from IP Prininting, workgroup, etc, just hangs with the beachball.
