Parallel configuration (HP Color LaserJet 3700 series printer only)
TheHP Color LaserJet 3700 printer supports network and parallel connections at the same
time. A parallel connection is made by connecting the printer to the computer using a
bidirectional parallel cable (IEEE-1284 compliant) with a b-connector plugged into the printer
parallel port. The cable can be a maximum of 10 meters (or (30 feet)) long.
NOTE
When used to describe a parallel interface, the term bidirectional indicates that the printer is
able to both receive data from the computer and send data to the computer through the
parallel port. The parallel interface provides backwards compatibility; however, USB or
network connection is recommended to optimize performance.

Enhanced I/O (EIO) configuration (HP color LaserJet 3700 series
printer only)
This printer comes equipped with one enhanced input/output (EIO) slot. This slot holds
compatible external devices, such as the HP Jetdirect print server network cards or other
devices.
EIO network cards can maximize printer performance when printing from a network. In
addition, they provide the ability to place the printer anywhere on a network. This eliminates
the need to attach the printer directly to a server or to a workstation, and allows you to place
the printer closer to the network users.
If the printer is configured through an EIO network card, configure that card through the
control panel Configure device menu.
HP Jetdirect print servers
An HP Jetdirect print server (network card) can be installed in the printer EIO slot. These
print server cards support multiple network protocols and operating systems. HP Jetdirect
print servers facilitate network management, allowing you to connect a printer directly to your
network at any location. HP Jetdirect print servers also support Simple Network
Management Protocol (SNMP), which provides network managers with remote printer
management and troubleshooting through HP Web Jetadmin software.
NOTE
Installation of these cards and network configuration should be performed by a network
administrator. Configure the card either through the control panel, the printer installation
software, or with HP Web Jetadmin software.
NOTE
See to the HP Jetdirect print server documentation for information on which external devices
or EIO network cards are supported.

on a network.
ENWW
Printer software
73
HP Toolbox
The HP Toolbox is an application that you can use for the following tasks:
●
Check the printer status.
●
Configure the printer settings.
●
View troubleshooting information.
●
View online documentation.
●
Print internal printer pages.
You can view the HP Toolbox when the printer is directly connected to your computer or
when it is connected to a network. You must have performed a complete software
installation to use the HP Toolbox.
Embedded Web server (available for the HP Color LaserJet 3700 series
printer)
This printer is equipped with an embedded Web server that allows access to information
about the printer and network activities. A Web server provides an environment in which
Web programs may run, much in the same way that an operating system, such as Windows,
provides an environment for programs to run on your PC. The output from these programs
can then be displayed by a Web browser, such as Microsoft Internet Explorer or Netscape
Navigator.
An embedded Web server resides on a hardware device (such as a printer) or in firmware,
rather than as software that is loaded on a network server.
The advantage of an embedded Web server is that it provides an interface to the printer that
anyone with a network-connected PC and a standard Web browser can access. There is no
special software to install or configure, but you must have a supported Web browser on your
computer. To access the embedded Web server, type the IP address for the printer in the
address line of the browser. (To find the IP address, print a configuration page. For more
information about printing a configuration page, see the user guide.)
Features
The HP embedded Web server allows you to view printer and network card status and
manage printing functions from your PC. With the HP embedded Web server, you can do the
following:
●
View printer status information.
●
Determine the remaining life on all supplies and order new ones.
●
View and change tray configurations.
●
View and change the printer control panel menu configuration.
●
View and print internal pages.
●
Receive notification of printer and supplies events.
●
Add or customize links to other Web sites.
●
Select the language in which to display the embedded Web server pages.
●
View and change network configuration.
●
View support content that is printer-specific and specific to the printer’s current state.

online Help for that software.
Using an ASCII PJL escape sequence to set security
If you decide to use the ASCII escape sequence, you must use an MS-DOS® or Windows
ASCII editor to create the commands. The commands must also be sent to the printer by
using a DOS COPY command or an ASCII file download utility. The PJL Technical
Reference Manual is located on CD-ROM, part number 5961-0976. Order a copy of this
manual from the HP website at http://www.hp.com.
NOTE
In the following examples, "EC" represents the escape character. For more information on
using escape characters, see the PJL Technical Reference Manual.
To lock or unlock the printer control panel if a password has not been set, send the following
ASCII sequence to the printer:
EC%-12345X@PJL JOB
@PJL DEFAULT CPLOCK=NONE (or MINIMUM, MODERATE, or MAXIMUM)
@PJL EOJ
EC%-12345X
To set the password, send the following ASCII sequence to the printer:
EC%-12345X@PJL JOB
@PJL DEFAULT PASSWORD=[numeric password (0 to 65535)]
@PJL EOJ
EC%-12345X
To lock or unlock the control panel if the password has been set, send the following ASCII
sequence to the printer:
EC%-12345X@PJL JOB PASSWORD=(numeric password)
@PJL DEFAULT CPLOCK=NONE (or MINIMUM, MODERATE, or MAXIMUM)
@PJL EOJ
EC%-12345X

Printer memory for the HP Color LaserJet 3700 series printer
The printer has three DIMM slots. The bottom slot is for the firmware DIMM.
NOTE
For maximum flexibility in DIMM support, the formatter is designed with three 168-pin DIMM
slots and a fourth 100-pin DIMM slot.
Use these DIMM slots to upgrade the printer with the following items:
●
More printer memory—DIMMs are available in 64, 128, and 256 MB
●
Flash memory DIMMs—available in 4 MB; unlike standard printer memory, flash DIMMs
can be used to permanently store downloaded items in the printer, even when the printer
is off
●
DIMM-based accessory fonts, macros, and patterns
●
Other DIMM-based printer languages and printer options
●
Memory expansion, which can support up to 448 MB of memory
You might want to add more memory to the printer if you often print complex graphics or
PostScript documents, or if you use many downloaded fonts. Additional memory also allows
the printer to print multiple, collated copies at the maximum speed.
NOTE
Single in-line memory modules (SIMMs) used on previous HP LaserJet printers are not
compatible with this printer.
NOTE
To order DIMMs, see Ordering parts in chapter 8.
Before ordering additional memory, see how much memory is currently installed by printing a
configuration page.
