HP

HP Access Control web page settings discrepancy

If you sign in to the HP printer’s web page, select Security and then select Access Control, you will see the text:

  • Some security settings on this page are unavailable because they are managed by Printix Go.

HP printer says: Sign-in failed. The default sign-in method (Printix) is currently unavailable…

On the HP printer when you select an application you get the error message “The default sign-in method (Printix) is currently unavailable. Choose an alternate method and sign in again”. This can be caused by the printer’s date, time and time zone not being set correctly. It is particularly important to set this correctly of a reset to factory settings. If the date and time is off the certificates does not work. Another possibility is that the printer’s default gateway is not set correctly and therefore blocks communication to the Printix Client/Printix Cloud.

RESOLUTION: Set the correct date and check that the default gateway is correct.

  • An otherwise supported card reader is connected to the HP printer before Printix Go is installed.
