Why Codeplex
Recently I started two opensource projects on CodePlex.

Both projects contain some controls for Windows.Forms that I could not find (for free) myself.

But why on CodePlex?

Because CodePlex has good Visual Studio integration with the Team Foundation client. This make the project management al lot easier.

HP 2575 scanning and Vista
I've had some problems to scan using the HP Photosmart 2575 on my Vista machine. I connect to the HP 2575 via a network interface. This way I can share it with my portable or any other future machine.

On my XP this works fine, using my Vista I can print alright, but scanning never worked.

When I recently seached HP support of a solution, there was a remark about the firewall blocking access. (http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01086194&lc=nl&cc=be&lang=nl&rule=5413&product=441240&dlc=nl in Dutch).

To get stuff to work I followed these steps:
  1. Give the Photosmart a fixed IP address
  2. Add the files listed to the firewall to have full access.
    (hpqkygrp.exe, hpqscnvw.exe, hpzipm12.exe, hpzinw12.exe, hpqtra08.exe, hpqthb08.exe)
  3. The same for the ports on this page, both in and out.
    UDP: 161, 427, 137
    TCP: 9220, 9500, 9290
  4. Full uninstall of all HP software
  5. Reboot, computer and Photosmart
  6. Disable the firewall
  7. Re-install software from HP download (http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareList?os=2093&lc=nl&cc=be&lang=nl&product=441240&dlc=nl)
  8. Re-enable the firewall

And now, it all works.
