Find IP Address of HP Designjet 500ps 42" printer?

How do I get an HP Designjet 500ps 42" printer, with no !/O card, to tell me its IP Address?

If it has no jetdirect card/network card is must be a USB or parallel printer only.  If you go to the setup menu and scroll to printer information it should tell you if it is a netork printer or not.

You can't get an IP address if you have don't have a network card installed.

OK, that saved me from some futile effort — Thanks!

 

I ended up rearranging some furniture, and got a longer printer cable.

When I connected the HP Designjet DIRECTLY to my iMac, instead of through an adapter, it showed up on the printer list. So I don't need to know the IP address now, because the printer works fine.

 

Thank you, everybody!
