hp-makeuri [OPTIONS] [SERIAL NO.|USB ID|IP|DEVNODE]

USB IDs (usb only):
"xxx:yyy" where xxx is the USB bus ID and yyy is the USB device ID. The ':' and all leading zeroes must be present. (Use the 'lsusb' command to obtain this information. See Note 1.)
IPs (network only):
IPv4 address "a.b.c.d" or "hostname"
DEVNODE (parallel only):
"/dev/parportX", X=0,1,2,...
SERIAL NO. (usb and parallel only):
"serial no."

To specify the port on a multi-port JetDirect:
-p<port> or --port=<port> (Valid values are 1*, 2, and 3. *default)
Show the CUPS URI only (quiet mode):
-c or --cups
Show the SANE URI only (quiet mode):
-s or --sane
Show the HP Fax URI only (quiet mode):
-f or --fax
Set the logging level:
-l<level> or --logging=<level> <level>: none, info*, error, warn, debug (*default)

-h or --help

USB:
$ hp-makeuri 001:002
Network:
$ hp-makeuri 66.35.250.209
Parallel:
$ hp-makeuri /dev/parport0
USB or parallel (using serial number):
$ hp-makeuri US123456789

1. Example using 'lsusb' to obtain USB bus ID and USB device ID (example only, the values you obtain will differ) :
$ lsusb
Bus 003 Device 011: ID 03f0:c202 Hewlett-Packard
$ hp-makeuri 003:011
(Note: You may have to run 'lsusb' from /sbin or another location. Use '$ locate lsusb' to determine this.)
