|Summary : EWS Gateway allows you to access the Embedded Web Server
|Description : |
HP printers have good driver support on Linux, but some models, like the
LaserJet Pro P1102w, have no way to set up wireless access without connecting
via USB to a Windows or Mac system. HPLIP has a tool called hp-wificonfig,
but it does not work on the P1102w.
The USB EWS interface is simple: The printer has an extra interface with
class 255 (Vendor specific) and an interface name of \"HP EWS\". This interface
has two bulk endpoints: You write an HTTP request to one endpoint, and read
a response on the other. The gateway script only needs to provide a listening
TCP socket and determine the boundaries of the request and response. It only
accepts one connection at a time and does not support HTTP keep-alive.
Run ewsgateway as ordinary user.
