With IPHost Network Monitor you can run simple snmp requests against a HP device in your network.
Writing this object to a value other than eNotPrintingAnInternalPage causes the device to attempt to print
an internally generated page. Reading this object provides an indication what internally generated page is currently being printed, if any. The actual page is device specific. Some devices may support continuously printing an internally generated page. Setting this object to eNotPrintingAnInternalPage terminates continuously printing internally generated pages. An internally generated page may not be allowed to be printed at any arbitrary time; under what conditions it will succeed or fail is device specific. If the device supports the requested page, but can not start printing the page when requested, the device will respond with . RECOMMENDATION: If the device is ready (i.e. the NOT- READY-PRINTER object does not contain any items, except maybe being off-line) and is idle (i.e. the NOT-IDLE object does not contain any items), this request should always succeed. This provides a mechanism for driver writers to always determine if the action will succeed or not. Additional information: eDeviceDemoPage2 is the printer demo page. ePCLFontList1 is the PCL typeface list, ePostScriptFontList1 is the PostScript font list, and eDeviceDemoPage1ConfigurationPage is the selftest page. The HP LaserJet 2100 Series does not support continuously printing a demo page. The printer will queue requests if it is currently busy. When this object is set to a valid value and the printer is idle, the status returned is and the value returned is ePrintingAnUnknownInternalPage. Setting this object to a valid value causes the desired page to be formatted and put in the printer's print queue. While the page is being formatted, and the printer remains in a testing state, a get on this object will return the value ePrintingAnUnknownInternalPage. The return value will be eNotPrintingAnInternal page if the printer is not in a testing state, and the internal page is done being formatted. The user will not be able to set eNotPrintingAnInternalPage or ePrintingAnUnknownInternalPage, and the return status will be with a return value of eNotPrintingAnInternalPage. ePostScriptFontList1 will not be a valid value unless postscript is installed in the printer. If postscript is not installed and the user attempts to set ePostScriptFontList1, the return status will be with a return value of eNotPrintingAnInternalPage. Setting through DMCMD will cause a 15 second delay in printing.
