Hp HP LaserJet 4

laserjet pro P1606DN install on Windows 2000?


Is it possible to install this and other new laserjets on Windows 2000? The drivers stopped at XP and come with new o/s support according to HP.

Someone has tried to install the software and they say it says not compatible with this operating system.

With some local printers in the past I have managed to get them to print using HP 4 laserjet etc driver, is there a similar method to get a new model working ideally using the network connection instead of USB?

Maybe installing on a local port and then adding a tcp port would get round it? Would i need to know the printers IP or would the name work?

Thanks for any pointers on this.
