HP 2605dn on HP-UX 11.0 /w Jetadmin

Can anyone point me to documentation stating if this printer is or is not compatible with HP-UX 11.0 /w Jetadmin? I'm receiving the following error when trying to add it.

Enter the network printer name or IP address (q - quit): p844

!! p844 is NOT an acceptable name!!
Either it is NOT a network printer or this host is denied access
to it!

You need to load the 2605 printer script from:


NOTE: If your printer (or printer series) is not listed here, the printer cannot be made to work with HP-UX. There are no drivers for the cheap printers without a formatter.
