8
Chapter 4 Settings tile
the Get and Set community names are “public”. For communication between the server and devices, the Get
and Set community names on the server must match the Get and Set community names on all devices.
NOTE: The SNMP section displays if Job Accounting, Device Analysis, Agent, or Secure Pull Print Express is
installed on the server.
In the Trap level field, select the type of traps you want to track with Direct Tracking Module (DTM). A trap is a
packet of information provided by the printer that indicates basic job information and print job status.
●
Print Confirmation traps is the default Trap level. With Print Confirmation traps selected, only printed
job traps are sent from the device. This is used to reduce the network traffic with unwanted traps.
●
All traps are to track all jobs, printed, copied, or digitally sent. Some versions of HP JetDirect require
that All traps mode is selected.
The UDP port field is the port used by the trap service. By default, the trap service uses UDP port 162. If the
port is used by another application or service on the same server, the Job Accounting Trap service can use
another port. If the port is changed, the Job Accounting Trap service (HPACJA_SnmpTrap) needs to be
stopped and restarted. Printers also need to be reconfigured using the new port.
The Filter Delay is used if JetDirect sends the same trap multiple times in a very short interval. This occurs on
external JetDirect 300x and 500x. The delay value can be set to 50 ms for 300x and 500x. For other devices,
the default value can remain at 0.
In the Concurrent connections section, set the number of network devices you want to install and configure
at one time. The maximum number of concurrent connections allowed is 50.

In the HTTP/FTP field, select one of the transfer protocols:
●
Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) connections are usually terminated after a particular request has
been completed. If HTTP is selected, Windows credentials are required in the Login and Password fields.
Also, if IIS 7 or newer is installed on the server, Basic Authentication needs to be enabled. Devices
require Basic Authentication to pass data via HTTP when IPA sends tracking data to the Job Accounting
Print Server. The default port is 80.
●
File Transfer Protocol (FTP) is best for uploading data to an internal database server. If FTP is selected,
any credentials can be used in the Login and Password fields. By default, the login and password are
“Anonymous”. The default port is 21. Select the PASV checkbox to enable passive mode FTP if you want
to allow data to transfer more easily through firewalls.
The Interval (minutes) field determines how often tracking data is pushed from devices to the job

and the printer engine. A connection is established to TCP/IP port 9100 and all data sent by SPP Express is
passed through directly to the printer.
TCPIP/LPR provides very limited feedback from devices about the success of a print request and provides no
facilities for checkpoint restart of a failed request.
TCPIP/IPPS is a secure protocol that allows SPP Express to encrypt the data stream sent to the device.

Edit the following settings in the Options section:
●
Protocol: This defines the way SPP Enterprise will communicate with the printer. The choice of protocol
will depend on the destination device, its capabilities, and the level of control and feedback required
from the device.
TCPIP/SOCK is a direct socket protocol that provides a simple direct communication channel between
SPP Enterprise and the printer engine. A connection is established to TCP/IP port 9100 and all data sent
by SPP Enterprise is passed through directly to the printer.
TCPIP/PJL implements a bi-directional communication channel with the printer engine using the PJL
(Printer Job Language) job management language. This protocol provides the most sophisticated
control of print delivery, including guaranteed delivery of each page to the output hopper, checkpoint
restart in the event of a failure, and full device status information (i.e., page jam, load paper, etc.). The
default implementation delivers one document at a time and waits for all pages to be delivered to the
output tray before commencing delivery of the next document. While this provides the highest level of
assured delivery, it can introduce a delay between documents caused by the printer engine winding
down while the paper path is completely cleared. When printing a large number of small document this
delay between jobs is most noticeable.
TCPIP/IPPS is a secure protocol that allows SPP Enterprise to encrypt the data stream sent to the
device.
●
Job expires after: This is the expiration time for stored jobs. The default time is 24 hours. After the
expiration time, jobs are deleted from the server.
●
Enable tracking of purged jobs: When enabled, this checkbox allows expired or deleted jobs to be
tracked for job accounting.
●
TCP/IP API Port: Specifies the local TCP/IP port that SPP Enterprise will open for API requests. Port
5501 is the default port. After making any changes, make sure to click the Restart Service button to
restart the HP AC SPP Enterprise service.
●
TCP/IP LPD Port: Specifies the local TCP/IP port that SPP Enterprise will open for inbound LPD requests.
Port 515 is the default port. If an LPD daemon is already running on the server, shut down this process
to enable SPP Enterprise to open port 515. After making any changes, make sure to click the Restart
Service button to restart the HP AC SPP Enterprise service.
●
TCP/IP IPP Port: Specifies the local TCP/IP port that SPP Enterprise will open for inbound IPP requests.
Port 631 is the default port. After making any changes, make sure to click the Restart Service button to
restart the HP AC SPP Enterprise service.
