    I have this printer hp3600n

    I try to print through ethernet cable but the jobs keep in pending status, they don't get printed. However, when i send the jobs with the same MAC OS X 10.6.6 computer through the usb port instead of the ethernet cable, the jobs do get printed.

    I have to say that I was able once to accomplish the printing successfully from another mac computer (os x server 10.6.4) through the ethernet cable to the same router in which the printer is plugged. However, now I cannot print from this second mac computer either.

    Could you please help me with this?
    Why do the jobs keep in pending status?

    Both mac computers have internet connection through this router.

    It sounds like you have not setup your printer for Ethernet?

    The problem is solved. I just had to create a new printer in the system preferences->Fax & printers
    There I create this new printer by selecting the local IP of the printer HP 3600n.

    The problem was that I was using another printer whose IP settings did not match the static lan ip of the hp3600n.
