printer worked fine until yesterday and the only changes I have made are
tumbleweed updates using dup.

can ping from three windows 10 machines

cannot ping from 3 tw and one 42.2 box

That rules out cups stack or hplip.

I assume you can ping other machines? Ah, yes, I see you can print to
another printer.

This printer is on wifi?

yes, both are.

the 8620/ failed to print and in trying to reconfigure, I
removed the printer using the hplip interface, but cannot reconfigure or
read subject printer.

No, I don't think this is an hplip issue, as long as you can not even
ping the printer.

hp-setup cannot detect printer,, on my network from 4
openSUSE boxes.

firewall off makes no difference

I can setup the printer from yast and from localhost:631 but cannot print.

I am lost, what to do next?

fwiw, I have another networked printer,, HP OfficeJet Pro
8615, and can print to it from all boxes and can ping it from all boxes.


I would reboot the printer, first of all.

have done that several times, doing again, also removed power cord. I
waited >15 minutes and reattached power and started device

ip n show: dev enp0s25 lladdr 6c:c2:17:1d:2f:26 REACHABLE
but changes in about 60 seconds to: dev enp0s25 lladdr 6c:c2:17:1d:2f:26 STALE

and no change in efforts with hp-setup

My HP printer sometimes does that, refuse to print and needs a kick.

Next, I would check the configuration of the printer to ensure that it is
still - if it changed, I guess Windows can find it anyway.

I deliberately changed it earlier with same result from all boxes
( and changed it back.

I meant using the printer panel itself, not the computer.

yes, using the printer panel. changed from static ..12 to automatic ..75.

still could not ping, nor access with browser or with

You should also be able to browse to in firefox or

cannot ping and cannot browse nor

Next, try ping to the printer.

believe I said that. can from several windows 10 boxes but cannot from
any linux box.

and still cannot after repowering.

Well, you have a network issue. You could try then a traceroute.
Try also to reboot the WiFi access point and/or router.

will try rebooting the router but windows boxes can ping and browse and
print to

connect cat5 and suddenly can ping and browser and hp-setup. disconnected
cable after set up, hplip shows printer and "device communication error".

rebooting router, will report back.
disconnected cable

ok, network starting, waiting for wireless

ahhh, can ping from wired machine, and others

that's dumb, stupid, ignorant and fscked up!

why would a linux based router allow windows access and deny linux

now setup completes and printing is working.
