HP Color LaserJet Pro M177 MFP: HP Color LaserJet not able to connect to connected HP


I try to activate my printer (HP Color LaserJet M177fw MFP Pro) ePrint and much more, but I'm not able to do it cause connection problem, I guess.

When I'm trying to 'print the information sheet', for example, the printer is not able to connect (stay on 'Sign in' loop indefinitely).

My printer is less than a Vodafone EasyBox router, with firewall disabled and no specific barriers defined by me.

Should I set some port forwarding (even if they should apply to ignore the firewall, when turned on) or any other specific configuration in the router?

the same connection problem, of course, it happens when I do touch printer and console web administration, of course.

In addition, I'll let you know that my router is not blocking access, for example, to-from the web (i.e. I am able to manage my NAS from the outside, since he admitted to a DDNS) and other local devices

I alreay set and as DNS pri/sec and had an output of cycle after the series of DNS.

My printer also has a static IP address (defined by the DHCP protocol, based on the MAC address), so not a problem, I think.

Thanks in advance for your help,



Hi Lorenzo,.

To enable Web Services fumctionality, you'll need to install the latest firmware on your printer (version 20160525)

You can locate the current version of your printer by selecting configuration > reports > Page of Configuration, the firmware version is listed under the information section on the printer.

Updated the firmware on Linux by following these steps, but I don't know if the latest firmware is available for Linux or not, try:


If the latest firmware is not available for linux, temporarily install the printer on a Windows PC or a my and install the latest firmware:


Kind regards

  • Color LaserJet MFP Pro 277dw: MFP will print but not scan since update Mac OS 10.10.5

    I had used my LaserJet MFP Pro wireless without problem for several years, with the Mavericks and Yosemite.  A few weeks ago a "update" the printer system is invisible.  After several hours of troubleshooting and to try five or six corrections, I finally got the printer online by using the IP address.

    My computers, however (a performer of the Mavericks and a Yosemite running), do not see the scanner.  It's not a question of adding - they do not to add it.  By HP support, I have reset the system print and tried to start over.  I downloaded HP Easy Print (or Easy Start or whatever), which is the entire site of support in the way of software for the 277dw of the ACM.  The software through me the entire upward and congratulated himself for a job well done, but my printer was not, in fact, related.  He appeared in the printers Control Panel, but would not print.  Just "connecting to printer" in the queue for ten minutes about until what I called off work.  And the scanner does not yet show in the Image Capture, preview or HP Easy Scan.

    So, I went back to my previous fix for the printer, use the IP address.  Any ideas on how to get the scanner appears?


    Restart your router by unplugging its power for 30 seconds.

    Once it is fully up and you have internet access on your Mac reboot both the HP printer and the Mac.

    From system preferences, select Printers and scanners and click on the plus sign to add the printer again.

    Can you now ee he listed as Hello type or not?

  • LaserJet Pro M177 MFP: HP LaserJet MFP M177fw Pro no widget Scan on the printer

    My newly purchased printer HP LaserJet Pro MFP M177fw don't have a widget to Scan on the printer screen. So, I can't scan and send it to email directly, without having to turn on a computer.

    Can you please help me, thanks.


    Hi @Herza,

    I see by your post that you would like to know how to scan from the control panel of the printer to send. I would like to help you today. Please select "Acceptable Solution", if these measures help to solve this problem. Thank you.

    This model is not the function of scan from the control panel. You must use the HP scanner on a computer to scan software.

    This document provides the steps for scanning on Windows 7. HP LaserJet multifunction printers - how to scan (Windows 7). You can use the HP scanning software to scan a document and then send it to the email.

    But you can install an APP on the printer itself called "Scan to Email".

    Once you register with www.hpconnect.com, you can add the APP.

    Click on add a device under the devices tab.

    Put in the claim code you printed to register and add the printer.

    Click the Services tab, then click on the sign - on the right side.

    Select your printer from the drop-down list.

    Then scroll to the application called "Scan to Email".

    Click on add to my printable cards.

    Now you should have an icon on the screen of the printer under APPS, called "Scan to Email".

    I hope this helps. If you appreciate my efforts, please click on the "Thumbs up" button below. Thank you.

  • Re: Satellite Pro L670-103 - not able to connect to the internet using LAN


    I am unable to get my L670-103, in the case of Windows 7 Pro (x 64), to connect to the internet via the ethernet jack.

    I tried running the troubleshooter in windows and reinstall the driver ethernet with no luck.
    The computer used to work fine with the same network (I have no control on the network itself, as I'm on a University campus), and my other, much more old laptop (with XP), connects with no bother.

    I'm sure the question is focused on software that - I tried to go online on the same socket after booting from an Ubuntu live CD, and it worked fine.

    What can I do about it?


    Can you confirm that the LAN driver was installed successfully?

  • HP Officejet Pro 8500 A909g: My printer is not wireless...

    Hello! I tried for three days to get my printer to print something. For some reason, my HP Officejet Pro 8500 all-in-One a909g is not printing.

    I tried to update the drivers to see if that was the problem, but for some reason that my printer is not connected to my HP laptop wireless. The connection for some reason any broke. Whenever I go to enter the WPA code (which is correct and yes I put it in place for WPA and WPA2 not) it keeps refusing to connect to my laptop.

    If someone could help me please, it is something that I really need for my studies and we just replace the ink and Printhead and cannot afford to replace really. Thank you!

    Thank you to try the Wireless Setup Wizard.
    Seems strange that the printer is not able to connect to the home network.

    If your printer is close to the router, you can connect using an Ethernet (Lan) cable.

    You will still need to install the printer software when you do this so that the drivers are properly configured i.e. non-plug-and-play.

    Hope that helps!

  • OfficeJet Pro 8610: Mac and printer do not connect


    I installed my printer operated a couple of months and it as a printer wireless to my MacBook. Everything went very well.

    Yesterday I tried to print a document, but my Mac was telling me that the printer was not connected, even if the two were connected to the same wifi. I turned off both devices, reconnected the printer for wifi on the way home the password, but nothing has worked. I decided to 'remove' the printer from my Mac in order to reinstall it again. The software is installed, but I'm stuck in one step:

    The printer is not and so I cannot connect my printer with my Mac, instructions say that you could also connect thorugh the printer using the Wifi the Printer Wizard. I plugged the printer several times to my wifi at home but I am not able to connect it to my computer, it does not find it.

    I am really grateful for any advice!

    Thanks in advance.

    Best regards


    Welcome to the HP community @JETaubenberger ,

    I read about the problems that you encounter when you try to connect your Officejet 8610 to your Mac via the wireless network. I have a few ideas in mind that should help connect you again!

    • Try power cycling network devices:

    Turn off the printer and the computer and unplug the router for 1 minute (do not press the buttons on the router).
    Plug the router back in and wait another minute, turn on the printer and the computer and attempt to print something.

    • If the connection still does not, try the following steps in the following order:
    1. Reset the printing system
    2. Repair disk permissions
    3. Restart the Mac.
    4. Install the complete driver here: HP Officejet Pro 8610 e-all-in-one printer
    5. In addition, to download this driver: HP v3.0 for OS X printer drivers

    You must be connected at this time, please let me know the result!
