    Have you tried the device's management console via the ethernet port? It should allow you to set it there, otherwise, if you have installed the correct driver, HP printers should allow you to set it locally via the Printer properties.

      Did you install the USB or Network option?

        If you've connected over ethernet you can access and configure the device using it's web interface by entering http://replacewiththedeviceipaddress into a browser. See screenshot...

              Ahinson shows you a good screen shot below. It will be worth connecting to the network to configure the tray options. HP would have come with the software that enables you to automatically connect to the HP networked printer.

              Otherwise, check the IP address allocated to the printer in DHCP and use that IP or set one manually. This can be set directly on the HP printer. It should have come with a manual that will explain how to.

                  Install the printer 3 times and create 3 different Dot4 USB Ports. Personally if this is a business machine it SHOULD be installed using the Ethernet option. Maybe you could train the users to select Properties (when they choose the printer) and show them where they can choose the different Tray from.

                  You mention you have a Domain so make life easy for you and the Users and install it as a network device. It isn't that difficult and it is also easier to install it as 3 different Print Devices with each one configured as you seem to want it. Why are you making things hard for yourself.

                  As a USB printer it means that PC has to be on for the printer to be available. If installed on a Domain Server then the printer(s) will be available as long as the Server is running.

                      You originally didn't mention wanting to install 3 printers.

                      It would be easier if you take Biggles77 suggestions. I personally would share a network printer from a server, if you have one that can be used, depending on the number of users needing to use it. When you install the second printer and third, just make sure each has a unique name, maybe indicating the tray they will use. You can then set the properties on each printer driver and other options. For e.g. Share the printer out and set security.

                      The users then map to that shared printer.

                      If you don't have that many users, you can use the disk or install the printer as a network printer manually on the user's workstation. I would advise setting a manual IP on the printer.

                        Re: hp laserjet 1320n printer

                        @ Virtual, from what I can understand, the printer has 3 trays and I am assuming each tray has a diffferent paper type or perhaps letterhead. Instead of training the users to go into the properties page and select the appropriate tray, having 3 different Print Devices installed gets round the having to educated the users.

                        My suggestion on having 3 different printers is to set the default on each printer to the required media with each printer named and so make it idiot proof for the users.

                        @ M-Be, install each printer using the same IP Port on the Server. This IP Port can be the same IP as the of the Printer. Do NOT use a Dynamic IP on the printer. Each of the 3 installed printers can be renamed to whatever will make them easily identifiable to your users. Do you understand what needs to be done?

                          Install three printers, with the same driver, but set each of them to take other tray as default. Give each of them relevant name.
                          Not clear why are you disregarding the advice about making the printer a network printer. It does have a NIC, you do have a server available ...

                              It's easy compared to installing it 3 times. Either way, all you have to do is use the Printer Install wizard and install 3 versions of that printer.

                              WHY do you want to select which tray to print from? If you need to select different paper sizes, it'll do that by itself.
