Comment (by phoudoin):

 So, the "HPB469D3" name is not resolved on non-Netbios aware OS.
 As we don't have support for ZeroConf/Bonjour, that's expected.

 I've no proof of that, but I wont be surprised that Epson firmware have a
 small DNS service that reply to query matching the printer name. As does
 many plug & and play network devices.

 Doesn't seems an actual issue in print driver or haiku network.

 Without dynamic resolution via ZeroConf or similar, what you can do is to
 add your HP printers ip addresses and hostnames in
 /boot/system/settings/network/hosts file.
