    HY guys

    I've just bought a used HP 360 LATEX but i can't find a way to connect it to the PC.
    I'm using Signature RIP and the printer is connect by ethernet to the PC. I've chosen an IP adress manualy on the printer/PC but nothing comes to the PC. I've also tried using automatic IP and default settings but nothing...no netwrok found. There is an usb connection on the printer but i don't think it is used for PC connection, maybe for firmeware updates or profile media update...
    I use a ROLAND VP300 by ethernet connection and SP300 by USB and never had a problem :(

    I think if you're not going through a switch you need a crossover cable for direct connection.

    As Dan360 said, first make a direct connection to see if everything is working properly and then try it over ethernet.

    I mean, use a USB cable to connect your printer directly to your PC.
    If your printer does not have a usb port then you need a serial to usb cable, which you can buy for usd 10-20 on the internet.

    That should do it. Unless there is a firewall on your computer that's blocking the port or something. lol

    If your software is installed correctly and supports the driver of your printer then it must work properly.
