I have set it up through the web interface as:

Driver:	HP Deskjet 1100 hpijs, 3.14.10 (color)
Connection:	lpd://
Defaults:	job-sheets=none, none media=iso_a4_210x297mm sides=one-sided

Ofc, as a network printer (you said nothing about how this printer is
connected physically); and one needs a pkg 'hplip' installed in addition
to the CUPS packages:

hplip-3.14.10_1      Drivers and utilities for HP Printers and All-in-One devices

and: I do not have such printer and can not test it;
