I have an HP LaserJet 3050 multi-function printer. The HP software does not see my printer behind my Linksys PSUS4 print server. I have managed to print to the printer by setting it up through CUPS. The printer is located at:


I have two problems:

1. The first job I send to the printer works. Thereafter no other jobs work the CUPS just reports that the printer is busy and it will try again in 10 seconds or 20 seconds or 30 seconds.......

2. I would like to be able to use the printers scan functionality. This sets up very easily when the HP software sees the printer but unfortunately since it does not see the printer through the print server I can't get the scanner working.

My print server is connected to a router. The router has a static IP of The print server is static at other machines connected to the network start getting IP's from

Any help would be appreciated.
