Introducing the HP Jetdirect
Embedded Print Server
Introduction
This printer or multifunction peripheral (MFP) device contains an
HP Jetdirect embedded print server that is integrated directly on
the device. Using this print server, you can connect this device
directly to a network and share it among multiple users or systems.
Because the print server is built into the device, an input/output
(I/O) slot or external port is not needed for network connectivity and
may be used for other purposes.
Network Connection
Using the embedded print server and built-in RJ-45 connector, the
printer or MFP device can connect to an IEEE 802.3 10/100Base-TX
(Ethernet/Fast Ethernet) network through unshielded twisted-pair
network cables.
Autonegotiation (10/100Base-TX) is used to automatically configure
link operation at 10 Mbps or 100 Mbps, and full- or half-duplex
communication mode, as required by the network. However, link
operation may be manually set using several configuration tools,
such as the printer control panel (if supported), Telnet and TFTP
commands, a Web browser, and network management software.
These tools are described later in this guide.
Note
ENWW
Unless otherwise specified, the term print server in
this manual refers to an HP Jetdirect print server
and not a separate computer running print server
software.

Identification
Product Number and Firmware Version
The features and capabilities of an HP Jetdirect print server
depends on the print server’s product model/number and its
operating firmware version. The print server can be upgraded with
new firmware versions when they are released. New versions may
provide enhanced features and capabilities.
The features and capabilities described in this guide support the
following HP Jetdirect print server and firmware version:
Note
For an HP Jetdirect embedded print server, a
non-orderable product number has been assigned.
The product number is for identification purposes
only.
●

Security Protocols
SNMP (IP and IPX)
SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol) is used by network
management applications for device management. HP Jetdirect
print servers support SNMP and standard MIB-II (Management
Information Base) objects on both IP and IPX networks.
The HP Jetdirect embedded print server supports an SNMP v1/v2c
agent, and an SNMP v3 agent for enhanced security.
HTTPS
The HP Jetdirect embedded print server supports HTTPS (Secure
Hyper Text Transfer Protocol) for secure, encrypted management
communications between the embedded Web server and your Web
browser.
ENWW
Introducing the HP Jetdirect Embedded Print Server 9
Authentication
EAP/802.1X Server-Based Authentication
The HP Jetdirect print server supports network client access using
the Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP) on an IEEE 802.1X
network. The IEEE 802.1X standard provides a port-based
authentication protocol where a port can allow or block access
depending on client authentication results.
When connected to an 802.1X port, the print server supports
Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP) with an authentication
server, such as a RADIUS (Remote Authentication Dial In User
Service, RFC 2138) server.
The print server supports the following EAP/802.1X method:
●
PEAP (Protected Extensible Authentication Protocol). PEAP is
a mutual authentication protocol that uses digital certificates
for network server authentication and passwords for client
authentication. For additional security, the authentication
exchanges are encapsulated within TLS (Transport Layer
Security). Dynamic encryption keys are used for secure
communications.
The network infrastructure device that connects the print server to
the network (such as an HP Procurve switch) must also support the
EAP/802.1X method used. In conjunction with the authentication
server, the infrastructure device can control the degree of network
access and services available to the print server client.
To configure the print server for EAP/802.1X authentication, you
must access the embedded Web server through your Web browser.
For more information, see Chapter 4.

Selecting a Zone
The HP LaserJet Utility allows you to select a preferred zone for
your printer on a Phase 2 EtherTalk network. Instead of your
printer remaining on the default zone, which is set by the router,
this utility lets you select the zone on which your printer appears.
The zones on which your printer can reside are limited by your
network configuration. The HP LaserJet Utility only enables
you to select a zone that is already configured for your
network.
Zones are groups of computers, printers, and other AppleTalk

TCP/IP Configuration
Introduction
To operate properly on a TCP/IP network, the HP Jetdirect print
server must be configured with valid TCP/IP network configuration
parameters, such as an IP address that is valid for your network.
For general information on TCP/IP networks, see Appendix A.
Server-Based and Manual TCP/IP Configuration
When in a factory-default state and initially powered on, the HP
Jetdirect print server will systematically try to obtain its TCP/IP
configuration using a server-based method (BOOTP, DHCP, and
RARP, described later in this chapter). Up to two minutes are used.
If configuration is not successful, a default IP address will be
assigned.
The print server may also be configured manually. Manual-based
tools include Telnet, a Web browser, the printer control panel, arp
and ping commands (when the default IP address is 192.0.0.192),
or SNMP-based management software. TCP/IP configuration
values assigned manually will be retained when powered off/on.
The print server can be reconfigured to use either server-based or
manual configuration of TCP/IP settings at any time.
To identify the IP address that is configured on the print server at
any time, see the HP Jetdirect configuration page.
ENWW
31
Default IP Address
When in a factory-default state (for example, when shipped from
the factory or after a cold-reset), the HP Jetdirect print server has
no IP address. A default IP address may or may not be assigned
depending on the network environment.
Default IP Address Will Not Be Assigned
A default IP address will not be assigned if a server-based method
(such as BOOTP or DHCP) is successful. And if the print server is
powered off/on, the same method will again be used to retrieve IP
configuration settings. If this method now fails to retrieve the IP
configuration settings (for example, the BOOTP or DHCP server is
no longer available), a default IP address will not be assigned.
Instead, the print server will continue to send IP configuration
requests indefinitely. You must cold-reset the print server to change
this behavior.
In addition, a default IP address will not be assigned if a network
cable is not attached to a wired print server.
Default IP Address Will Be Assigned
A default IP address will be assigned if the factory-default methods
fail, or if the print server has just been reconfigured by an
administrator to use a server-based method (such as BOOTP or
DHCP) that fails.
If a default IP address is assigned, the address will depend on the
network to which the print server is connected. The print server
senses broadcast packets on the network to determine the
appropriate default IP settings:
●
On small private networks that adhere to automated,
standards-based IP address assignments, the print server uses
a link-local addressing technique to assign a unique IP address.
Link-local addressing may be referenced as Auto IP. The IP
address assigned will be in the range of 169.254.1.0 to
169.254.254.255 (commonly referenced as 169.254/16), and
should be valid. However, it can be further modified for your
network using supported TCP/IP configuration tools if
necessary.
ENWW
TCP/IP Configuration 32
With link-local addresses, subnetting is not used. The subnet
mask will be 255.255.0.0, and cannot be changed.
Link-local addresses will not route off the local link, and access
to or from the Internet will not be available. The default gateway
address will be the same as the link-local address.
If a duplicate address is sensed, the HP Jetdirect print server
will automatically reassign its address, if necessary, in
accordance with standard link-local addressing methods.
●
On large or enterprise IP networks, a temporary address of
192.0.0.192 will be assigned until it is reconfigured with a valid
address through supported TCP/IP configuration tools. We refer
to this address as Legacy Default IP.
●
On mixed-environment networks, the self-assigned default IP
address may be either 169.254/16 or 192.0.0.192. In this case,
you should verify on the Jetdirect configuration page that the
assigned default IP address is as expected.
The IP address configured on your print server may be determined
by inspecting the Jetdirect configuration page for the print server.
See Chapter 9.
Default IP Address Configuration Options
Default IP Parameter Options
A Default IP configuration parameter on the print server controls
how the default IP address is assigned. Whenever the print server
is unable to obtain an IP address during a forced TCP/IP
reconfiguration (for example, when manually configured to use
BOOTP or DHCP), this parameter will determine the default IP
address to use.
When the print server is in a factory-default state, this parameter
is undefined.
If the print server is initially configured with a default IP address
(either a link-local IP address or the legacy default 192.0.0.192 IP
address), the Default IP parameter will be set to either Auto IP or
Legacy Default IP to match.
The Default IP parameter can be changed through a supported
configuration tool, such as Telnet, a Web browser, the printer
control panel, and SNMP management applications.
ENWW
TCP/IP Configuration 33
DHCP Requests Enable/Disable
When a default IP address is assigned, you can choose to send, or
not send, periodic DHCP requests. DHCP requests are used to
retrieve IP configuration settings from a DHCP server on the
network. By default, this parameter is enabled, allowing DHCP
requests to be transmitted. However, this parameter may be
disabled through supported configuration tools such as Telnet, a
Web browser, and SNMP management applications.
TCP/IP Configuration Tools
Depending on your printer and operating system, an HP Jetdirect
print server can be configured with valid TCP/IP parameters for
your network in the following ways:
●
Using Software. You can use your printer installation
software on supported systems. For more information see
Chapter 2, “HP Software Solutions Summary”.
●
BOOTP/TFTP. You can download the data from a
network-based server using BOOTP (Bootstrap Protocol) and
TFTP (Trivial File Transfer Protocol) each time the printer is
turned on. For more information, see “Using BOOTP/TFTP”.
The BOOTP daemon, bootpd, must be running on a BOOTP
server that is accessible by the printer.
●
DHCP/TFTP. You can use Dynamic Host Configuration
Protocol (DHCP) and TFTP (Trivial File Transfer Protocol) each
time the printer is turned on. These protocols are supported on
HP-UX, Solaris, Red Hat Linux, SuSE Linux, Windows
NT/2000/Server 2003, NetWare and Mac OS systems. (Refer to
your network operating system manuals to verify that your
server operating system supports DHCP.) For more
information, see “Using DHCP”.
ENWW
TCP/IP Configuration 34
Note
Linux and UNIX systems: For more information,
see the bootpd man page.
On HP-UX systems, a sample DHCP configuration
file (dhcptab) may be located in the /etc directory.
Since HP-UX presently does not provide Dynamic
Domain Name Services (DDNS) for its DHCP
implementations, HP recommends that you set all
print server lease durations to infinite. This ensures
that print server IP addresses remain static until
such time as Dynamic Domain Name Services
are provided.
●
RARP. A network-based server can use RARP (Reverse Address
Resolution Protocol) to answer the print server's RARP request
and supplying the print server with the IP address. The RARP
method only allows you to configure the IP address. For more
information, see “Using RARP”.
●
arp and ping commands. (For print servers configure with
Legacy default IP address 192.0.0.192 only) You can use the arp
and ping commands from your system. For more information,
see “Using the arp and ping Commands”.
●
Telnet. You can set configuration parameters using Telnet. In
order to set configuration parameters, set up a Telnet
connection from your system to the HP Jetdirect print server
using the default IP address. Once configured, the print server
saves the configuration when powered off/on. For more
information, see “Using Telnet”.
●
Embedded Web server. You can browse to the embedded Web
server on the HP Jetdirect print server to set the configuration
parameters. For more information, see Chapter 4.
●
Printer Control Panel. You can manually enter the
configuration data using the printer control panel keys. The
control panel method allows you to configure only a limited
subset of configuration parameters. Therefore, control panel
configuration is recommended only during troubleshooting or
for simple installations. If control panel configuration is used,
the print server saves the configuration when powered off/on.
For more information, see “Using the Printer Control Panel”.
ENWW
TCP/IP Configuration 35
Using BOOTP/TFTP
BOOTP (Bootstrap Protocol) and TFTP (Trivial File Transfer
Protocol) provide a convenient way to automatically configure the
HP Jetdirect print server for TCP/IP network operation. When
powered on, the Jetdirect print server sends a BOOTP request
message onto the network. A properly configured BOOTP server
on the network will respond with a message that contains basic
network configuration data for the Jetdirect print server. The
BOOTP server’s response may also identify a file that contains
extended configuration data for the print server. The Jetdirect print
server downloads this file using TFTP. This TFTP configuration file
may be located on the BOOTP server, or a separate TFTP server.
BOOTP/TFTP servers are typically UNIX or Linux systems.
Windows NT/2000/Server 2003 and NetWare servers can respond
to BOOTP requests. Windows NT/2000/Server 2003 servers are
configured through Microsoft DHCP services (see Using DHCP).
However, Windows NT/2000/Server 2003 systems may require
third-party software for TFTP support. For setup of NetWare
BOOTP servers, refer to your NetWare documentation.
Note
ENWW
If the Jetdirect print server and BOOTP/DHCP
server are located on different subnets, IP
configuration may fail unless the routing device
supports “BOOTP Relay” (allows the transfer of
BOOTP requests between subnets).
TCP/IP Configuration 36
Why Use BOOTP/TFTP?
Using BOOTP/TFTP to download configuration data has the
following benefits:
●
Enhanced configuration control of the HP Jetdirect print server.
Configuration by other methods, such as a printer control panel,
are limited to select parameters.
●
Ease of configuration management. Network configuration
parameters for the entire network can be in one location.
●
Ease of HP Jetdirect print server configuration. Complete
network configuration can be automatically downloaded each
time the print server is powered on.
Note
BOOTP operation is similar to DHCP, but the
resulting IP parameters will be the same when
powered off/on. In DHCP, IP configuration
parameters are leased and may change over time.
When in its factory-default state and powered on, the HP Jetdirect
print server will attempt to automatically configure itself using
several dynamic methods, one of which is BOOTP.
BOOTP/TFTP on UNIX
This section describes how to configure the print server using
BOOTP (Bootstrap Protocol) and TFTP (Trivial File Transfer
Protocol) services on UNIX servers. BOOTP and TFTP are used
to download network configuration data from a server to the
HP Jetdirect print server over the network.
Systems That Use Network Information Service (NIS)
If your system uses NIS, you may need to rebuild the NIS map with
the BOOTP service before performing the BOOTP configuration
steps. Refer to your system documentation.
ENWW
TCP/IP Configuration 37
Configuring the BOOTP Server
For the HP Jetdirect print server to obtain its configuration data
over the network, the BOOTP/TFTP servers must be set up with
the appropriate configuration files. BOOTP is used by the print
server to obtain entries in the /etc/bootptab file on a BOOTP
server, while TFTP is used to obtain additional configuration
information from a configuration file on a TFTP server.
When the HP Jetdirect print server is powered on, it broadcasts a
BOOTP request that contains its MAC (hardware) address. A
BOOTP server daemon searches the /etc/bootptab file for a
matching MAC address, and if successful, sends the corresponding
configuration data to the Jetdirect print server as a BOOTP reply.
The configuration data in the /etc/bootptab file must be properly
entered. For a description of entries, see “Bootptab File Entries”.
The BOOTP reply may contain the name of a configuration file
containing enhanced configuration parameters. If the HP Jetdirect
print server finds such a file, it will use TFTP to download the file
and configure itself with these parameters. For a description of
entries, see “TFTP Configuration File Entries“. Configuration
parameters retrieved through TFTP are optional.
Note
ENWW
HP recommends that the BOOTP server be located
on the same subnet as the printers it serves.
BOOTP broadcast packets may not be
forwarded by routers unless the routers are
properly configured.

Table 3.3
TFTP Configuration File Parameters (4 of 10)
TCP/IP Access Control
allow: netnum [mask]
Makes an entry into the host access list stored on the HP Jetdirect print server.
Each entry specifies a host or network of hosts that are allowed to connect to the
printer. The format is “allow: netnum [mask]” where netnum is a network number
or host IP address, and mask is an address mask of bits applied to the network
number and host address to verify access. Up to 10 access list entries are allowed.
If there are no entries, all hosts are permitted access. For example,
allow: 192.0.0.0 255.0.0.0 allows hosts on network 192.
allow: 192.168.1.2 allows a single host. In this case, the default mask
255.255.255.255 is assumed and is not required.
allow: 0 This entry clears the host access list.
For additional information, see Chapter 1.

ENWW
TCP/IP Configuration 50
Table 3.3
TFTP Configuration File Parameters (6 of 10)
idle-timeout:
The number of seconds that an idle print data connection is allowed to remain
open. Since the card supports only a single TCP connection, the idle timeout
balances the opportunity of a host to recover or complete a print job against the
ability of other hosts to access the printer. The acceptable values range from 0 to
3600 (1 hour). If “0” is typed, the timeout mechanism is disabled. The default is
270 seconds.
user-timeout:
(telnet-timeout:)
An integer (1..3600) that specifies the number of seconds that your Telnet or FTP
session can be idle before it will be automatically disconnected. The default is 900
seconds. 0 disables the timeout.
CAUTION: Small values, such as 1-5, may effectively disable the use of Telnet.
A Telnet session may terminate before any changes can be made.
ews-config:
(web:)
Enables or disables the print server’s embedded Web server to change
configuration values: 0 disables, 1 (default) enables.
tcp-mss:

advertise for use when communicating with local subnets (Ethernet MSS=1460
bytes or more) or remote subnets (MSS=536 bytes):
0 (default): All networks are assumed to be local (Ethernet MSS=1460 bytes or
more).
1: Use MSS=1460 bytes (or more) for subnets, and MSS=536 bytes for remote
networks.
2: All networks are assumed to be remote (MSS=536 bytes), except the local
subnet.
MSS affects performance by helping to prevent IP fragmentation that may result
in data retransmission.
tcp-msl:
Specifies the maximum segment life (MSL) in seconds. The range is 5 - 120
seconds. The default is 15 seconds.
telnet-config:
(telnet:)
If set to 0, this parameter instructs the print server not to allow incoming Telnet
connections. To regain access, change the setting in the TFTP configuration file
and power cycle the print server, or cold reset the print server to factory default
values. If this parameter is set to 1, incoming Telnet connections are allowed.

ENWW
TCP/IP Configuration 55
Using DHCP
Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP, RFC 2131/2132) is
one of several auto configuration mechanisms that the HP Jetdirect
print server uses. If you have a DHCP server on your network, the
HP Jetdirect print server automatically obtains its IP address
from that server and registers its name with any RFC 1001
and 1002-compliant dynamic name services as long as a WINS
(Windows Internet Naming Service) server IP address has been
specified.
A TFTP (Trivial File Transfer Protocol) configuration file may also
be used with DHCP to configure extended parameters. For more
information on TFTP parameters, see “Using BOOTP/TFTP”.
Note
DHCP services must be available on the server.
Refer to your system documentation or online help
to install or enable DHCP services.
Note
If the Jetdirect print server and BOOTP/DHCP
server are located on different subnets, IP
configuration may fail unless the routing device
allows the transfer of DHCP requests between
subnets.
ENWW
TCP/IP Configuration 56
UNIX Systems
For more information on setting up DHCP on UNIX systems, see
the bootpd man page.
On HP-UX systems, a sample DHCP configuration file (dhcptab)
may be located in the /etc directory.
Since HP-UX presently does not provide Dynamic Domain Name
Services (DDNS) for its DHCP implementations, HP recommends
that you set all print server lease durations to “infinite”. This
ensures that print server IP addresses remain static until dynamic
domain name services are provided.
Windows Systems
HP Jetdirect print servers support IP configuration from a
supported Windows DHCP server. This section describes how to set
up a pool, or “scope,” of IP addresses that the Windows server can
assign or lease to any requester. When configured for BOOTP or
DHCP operation and powered on, the HP Jetdirect print
server automatically sends a BOOTP or DHCP request for its IP
configuration. If properly set up, a Windows DHCP server will
respond with the print server’s IP configuration data.
Note
This information is provided as an overview. For
specific information or for additional support, see
the information supplied with your DHCP server
software.
Note
To avoid problems resulting from IP addresses
that change, HP recommends that all printers
be assigned IP addresses with infinite leases or
reserved IP addresses.

6. Select Set up the IP Address Pool. In the IP Address Pool
section, set up the IP address range by typing the beginning IP
address in the Start Address box and the ending IP address in
the End Address box. Also type the subnet mask for the subnet
to which the IP address pool applies.
The starting and ending IP addresses define the end points of
the address pool assigned to this scope.
Note
If desired, you can exclude ranges of IP addresses
within a scope.
7. In the Lease Duration section, select Unlimited, then
select OK.
HP recommends that all printers be assigned infinite leases to
avoid problems resulting from IP addresses that change. Be
aware, however, that selecting an unlimited lease duration for
the scope causes all clients in that scope to have infinite leases.
If you want clients on your network to have finite leases, you
can set the duration to a finite time, but you should configure
all printers as reserved clients for the scope.
ENWW
TCP/IP Configuration 58
8. Skip this step if you have assigned unlimited leases in the
previous step. Otherwise, select Scope and select Add
Reservations to set up your printers as reserved clients. For
each printer, perform the following steps in the Add Reserved

NetWare Systems
NetWare 5.x servers provide DHCP configuration services for
network clients, including the HP Jetdirect print server. To set up
DHCP services on a NetWare server, refer to Novell documentation
and support.
To Discontinue DHCP Configuration
CAUTION
Changes to an IP address on your HP Jetdirect
print server may require updates to printer or
system printing configurations for clients or
servers.
If you do not want your HP Jetdirect print server configured
through DHCP, you must reconfigure the print server to use a
different configuration method.
1. If you use the printer control panel to set Manual or BOOTP
configuration, then DHCP will not be used.
2. You can use Telnet to set Manual (status indicates “User
Specified”) or BOOTP configuration, then DHCP will not
be used.
3. You can manually modify the TCP/IP parameters through a
supported Web browser using the Jetdirect embedded Web
server or HP Web Jetadmin.
ENWW
TCP/IP Configuration 62
If you change to BOOTP configuration, the DHCP-configured
parameters are released and the TCP/IP protocol is initialized.
If you change to Manual configuration, the DHCP-configured IP
address is released and the user-specified IP parameters are used.
Therefore, if you manually provide the IP address, you
should also manually set all of the configuration
parameters, such as subnet mask, default gateway, and
idle timeout.
Note
If you choose to re-enable a DHCP configuration,
the print server will acquire its configuration
information from a DHCP server. This means that
when you choose DHCP and complete your
configuration session (using Telnet, for example),
the TCP/IP protocol for the print server is
re-initialized and all current configuration
information is deleted. The print server then
attempts to acquire new configuration information
by sending DHCP requests on the network to a
DHCP server.
For DHCP configuration through Telnet, refer to “Using Telnet” in
this chapter.
ENWW
TCP/IP Configuration 63
Using RARP
This section describes how to configure the print server using the
Reverse Address Resolution Protocol (RARP) on UNIX and Linux
systems.
This setup procedure enables the RARP daemon running on your
system to respond to a RARP request from the HP Jetdirect print
server and to supply the IP address to the print server.
1. Turn the printer off.
2. Log onto your UNIX or Linux system as a superuser.
3. Make sure the RARP daemon is running on your system by
typing the following command at the system prompt:
ps -ef | grep rarpd (Unix)
ps ax | grep rarpd (BSD or Linux)
4. The system response should be similar to the following:
861 0.00.2
24
72
5
14:03
0:00
rarpd -a
860 0.00.5
36 140
5
14:03
0:00
rarpd -a
5. If the system does not display a process number for the RARP
daemon, see the rarpd man page for instructions on starting the
RARP daemon.
6. Edit the /etc/hosts file to add your designated IP address and
node name for the HP Jetdirect print server. For example:
192.168.45.39 laserjet1
ENWW
TCP/IP Configuration 64
7. Edit the /etc/ethers file (/etc/rarpd.conf file in
HP-UX 10.20) to add the LAN hardware address/station
address (from the configuration page) and the node name
for the HP Jetdirect print server. For example:
00:01:E6:a8:b0:00 laserjet1
Note
If your system uses Network Information Service
(NIS), you need to incorporate changes to the NIS
host and ethers databases.
8. Turn the printer on.
9. To verify that the card is configured with the correct IP address,
use the ping utility. At the prompt, type:
ping <IP address>
where <IP address> is the assigned address from RARP.
10. If ping does not respond, see Chapter 8.
ENWW
TCP/IP Configuration 65
Using the arp and ping Commands
You can configure an HP Jetdirect print server with an IP address
using an ARP (Address Resolution Protocol) command from a
supported system. The protocol is not routable, that is, the
workstation from which the configuration is made must be located
on the same network segment as the HP Jetdirect print server.
Using the arp and ping commands with HP Jetdirect print servers
requires the following:
●
Windows NT/2000/XP/Server 2003 or UNIX system configured
for TCP/IP operation
●
A legacy default IP address 192.0.0.192 has been set on the print
server
●
The LAN hardware (MAC) address of the HP Jetdirect print
server (specified on an HP Jetdirect configuration page)
Note
On some systems, superuser rights may be required
for the arp command.
After an IP address is assigned through arp and ping commands,
use other tools (such as Telnet, embedded Web server, or HP Web
Jetadmin software) to configure other IP parameters.
To configure a Jetdirect print server, use the following commands:
arp -s <IP address> <LAN hardware address>
ping <IP address>
where <IP address> is the desired IP address to be assigned to
the print server. The arp command writes the entries to the arp
cache on the workstation, and the ping command configures the
IP address on the print server.
ENWW
TCP/IP Configuration 66
Depending on the system, the LAN hardware address may require
a specific format.
For example:
●
For Windows NT 4.0, 2000, XP, Server 2003
arp -s 192.168.45.39 00-01-E6-a2-31-98
ping 192.168.45.39
●
For UNIX
arp -s 192.168.45.39 00:01:E6:a2:31:98
ping 192.168.45.39
Note
Once the IP address has been set on the print server,
additional arp and ping commands will be ignored.
Once the IP address is configured, arp and ping
cannot be used unless the print server is reset to
factory values (see Chapter 8).
On UNIX systems, the arp -s command may vary
between different systems.
Some BSD-based systems expect the IP address (or
host name) in reverse order. Other systems may
require additional parameters. See your system
documentation for specific command formats.
ENWW
TCP/IP Configuration 67
Using Telnet
This section describes how to configure the print server (firmware
version V.28.xx or greater) using Telnet.
Although a Telnet connection may be protected by an administrator
password, Telnet connections are not secure. For networks with
high security levels, Telnet connections can be disabled on the print
server using other tools (for example, TFTP, embedded Web server,
or HP Web Jetadmin software).
Creating a Telnet Connection
To use Telnet commands with the HP Jetdirect print server, a route
must be available from your workstation to the print server. If the
print server and your computer must have a similar IP address,
that is, the network portion of their IP addresses match, chances
are that a route will exist. For information on IP address structure,
see Appendix A.
If their IP addresses do not match, then you can either change your
workstation’s IP address to match, or you can try an operating
system command to create a route to the print server. (For example,
if the print server is configured with a legacy default IP address
192.0.0.192, a route will not likely exist.)
On Windows systems, you can use the route command at a
Windows command (DOS) prompt to create a route to the print
server.
For information on system command prompts, see your Windows
online help. On Windows NT systems, the command prompt utility
is in the Programs folder (click Start, Programs, Command
Prompt). On Windows 2000/XP/Server 2003 systems, it is in the
Accessories folder in the Programs or All Programs folder.
ENWW
TCP/IP Configuration 68
To use the route command, you will also need the IP address of your
workstation. To view it, you can enter the appropriate command at
the command prompt:
C:\> ipconfig
(on Windows NT/2000/XP/Server 2003)
C:\> winipconfig
(on Windows 98)
To create a route from the system command prompt, enter the
following command:
route add <Jetdirect IP Address> <system IP Address>
where <Jetdirect IP address> is the IP address configured on
the HP Jetdirect print server, and <system IP address> is the
IP address of the workstation's network card that is attached to the
same physical LAN as the print server.
For example, to create a route from your workstation with IP
address 169.254.2.1 to a print server with a default IP address of
192.0.0.192, try this command:
route add 192.0.0.192
CAUTION
169.254.2.1
Using Telnet to manually set an IP address will
override dynamic IP configuration (such as
BOOTP, DHCP, or RARP), resulting in a static
configuration. In a static configuration, the IP
values are fixed and the operation of BOOTP,
DHCP, RARP and other dynamic configuration
methods may no longer function.
Whenever you are manually changing an IP
address, you should also reconfigure the subnet
mask and default gateway at the same time.
ENWW
TCP/IP Configuration 69
A Typical Telnet Session
Initiating a typical Telnet session is illustrated below.
ENWW
TCP/IP Configuration 70
To set configuration parameters, you must set up a Telnet session
from your system to the HP Jetdirect print server.
1. Type the following at the system prompt:
telnet <IP address>
where <IP address> is the IP address listed on the Jetdirect
configuration page. See Chapter 9.
2. A connection to the HP Jetdirect print server will be displayed.
If the server responds with “connected to IP address”, press
Enter twice to make sure that the Telnet connection is
initialized.
3. If prompted for a user name and password, enter the correct
values.
By default, the Telnet interface does not require a user name or
password. If an administrator password has been set, you will
be prompted for a user name and this password before you can
enter and save Telnet command settings.
4. By default, a Command Line interface is provided. To configure
parameters using a Menu interface, enter Menu. For more
information, see “User Interface Options”.
For a list of supported commands and parameters, see “Telnet
Commands and Parameters”.
User Interface Options
The HP Jetdirect print server provides two interface options to
enter Telnet commands: a Command Line Interface (Default) and
a Menu Interface.
ENWW
TCP/IP Configuration 71
Command Line Interface (Default)
Using the Telnet command line interface, you can set configuration
parameters using the following procedures:
Note
During a Telnet session, enter ? to view available
configuration parameters, the correct command
format, and a list of commands.
To list additional (or advanced) commands, enter
the command advanced befored entering ?.
To display current configuration information,
enter /.
1. At the Telnet prompt “>” type:
<parameter>: <value>
then press Enter, where <parameter> refers to the
configuration parameter you are defining, and <value> refers
to the definitions you are assigning to that parameter. Each
parameter entry is followed by a carriage return.
See Table 3.4 for configuration parameters .
2. Repeat the previous step to set any additional configuration
parameters.
3. When you have finished typing the configuration parameters,
type exit or quit (depending on your system).
When prompted whether to save settings that you have
changed, enter Y (default) for Yes, or N for No.
If you enter save instead of exit or quit, you will not be
prompted to save settings.

Telnet Commands and Parameters. Table 3.4 lists the
available Telnet commands and parameters.
Note
If a parameter is supplied dynamically (for example,
from a BOOTP or DHCP server), its value cannot
be changed using Telnet without first setting
Manual configuration. To set Manual configuration,
see the ip-config command.
Whenever you are manually changing an IP
address, you should also reconfigure the subnet
mask and default gateway at the same time.

Using the Embedded Web Server
Introduction
This device contains an embedded Web server that can be accessed
from a compatible Web browser over an intranet. The embedded
Web server provides access to configuration and management pages
for the HP Jetdirect print server and the attached network device
(such as a printer or multifunction, all-in-one device).
Tabs across the upper portion of your browser window provide
access to device and networking pages. The tabs and functions
displayed will vary depending on the capabilities of the device and
the HP Jetdirect print server firmware version.
Network configuration for the HP Jetdirect print server are
accessed through the Networking tab. A typical Networking tab
is illustrated in Figure 4.1. For detailed configuration information,
see Networking Tab.
For information on other available tabs, see the embedded Web
server documentation supplied with your printer or MFP device.

Requirements
Compatible Web Browsers
To access the embedded Web server, you must use a compatible Web
browser. In general, the embedded Web server can be used with
Web browsers that support HTML 4.01 and cascading style sheets.
Hewlett-Packard tests a number of current and older browsers
using a variety of systems. In general, we recommend using the
following browsers:
●
●
Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.0 or greater
Netscape Navigator 6.0 or greater
Browser Exceptions
Due to known problems experienced during testing, we recommend
that you do not use the following browsers:
●
Netscape Navigator 6.2.x with SSL
Supported HP Web Jetadmin Version
HP Web Jetadmin is a browser-based, enterprise management tool
for network devices. It is available from HP online support at the
following URL:
http://www.hp.com/go/webjetadmin
To make use of improved security features, HP Web Jetadmin
version 7.6 or greater is recommended for operation with the
HP Jetdirect embedded Web server. Using HP Web Jetadmin, you
can enable the SNMP v3 agent and seamlessly create an SNMP v3
account on the print server.
A link to HP Web Jetadmin will be displayed on the embedded Web
server if HP Web Jetadmin has discovered this device through an
Integration URL.
Currently, browser support between HP Web Jetadmin and the
embedded Web server may differ. For supported browsers with HP
Web Jetadmin, visit http://www.hp.com/go/webjetadmin.
ENWW
Using the Embedded Web Server 92
Viewing the Embedded Web Server
Before you can use the embedded Web server, the HP Jetdirect print
server must be configured with an IP address. For a description of
an IP address and an overview of TCP/IP networking, see
Appendix A.
There are many ways to configure an IP address on the print server.
For example, you can automatically configure IP parameters over
the network using BOOTP (Bootstrap Protocol) or DHCP (Dynamic
Host Configuration Protocol) each time the print server is turned
on. Or, you can manually configure IP parameters using the
printer’s control panel, Telnet, the “arp” and “ping” system
commands, HP Web Jetadmin or other management software. For
more information on TCP/IP configuration options, see Chapter 3.
When powered on, an HP Jetdirect print server that is unable to
retrieve a valid IP address from the network will automatically
assign itself either a legacy default IP address 192.0.0.192 or a
link-local address in the range 169.254.1.0 to 169.254.254.255. The
IP address configured on your print server can be determined by
inspecting the Jetdirect configuration page for the print server. See
Chapter 3 for more information.
If the legacy default IP address 192.0.0.192 has been assigned, you
must temporarily set up your computer with the same IP network
number or establish a route to the print server before you can gain
access to the embedded Web server.
After an IP address is established on the print server, perform the
following steps:
1. Run a supported Web browser.
2. Enter the IP address of the print server as the URL.
Figure 4.2 Entering the IP Address
3. If prompted with security alerts, click Yes to proceed.
The embedded Web server uses standard HTTP for initial
ENWW
Using the Embedded Web Server 93
access. However, the print server may be configured to appear
as a secure site using an installed X.509-compliant certificate
for identification. When properly configured, encrypted browser
communications through HTTPS (secure HTTP) may be used
for secure access.
Although not recommended, you can use your Internet
Options menu to configure your browser to ignore security
warnings if the print server is configured to operate through
HTTPS. See Mgmt. Protocols.
4. An embedded Web server page will be displayed.
Operating Notes
●
If you enter or change a configuration parameter value, click
Apply to enable your change, or click Cancel to erase your
change.
●
Changes to the IP address will close the connection to the
embedded Web server. To re-establish a connection, use the new
IP address.
CAUTION
●
Changes to the IP address on the HP Jetdirect print
server may result in printing failures for clients
that have been configured to print to this printer
using the previous IP address.
Novell NetWare networks: On the Network Settings page, use
the IPX/SPX tab to configure Novell Directory Services (NDS)
Queue Server mode parameters. Note that the embedded Web

Description
IP Configuration
Method
Selects the method that the HP Jetdirect print server will use for
its IP configuration parameters: BOOTP (default), DHCP,
Manual, or Auto IP.
For BOOTP or DHCP, the IP parameters will be automatically
configured by a BOOTP or DHCP server each time the print
server is powered on.
If you select Manual, then basic IP parameters can be manually
entered using this Web page, or using other available tools.
If you select Auto IP, then a unique link-local address 169.254.x.x
will be assigned.
For more information, see Chapter 3.
Host Name
Specifies a readable IP name (the SNMP SysName object) for
the network device. The name must start with a letter and can
end in a letter or number, up to 32 ASCII characters. The default
name is NPIxxxxxx, where xxxxxx is the last six digits of the LAN
hardware (MAC) address.
IP Address
Use this field to manually assign the Internet Protocol address on
the HP Jetdirect print server. The IP address is a four byte (32-bit)
address in the form "n.n.n.n", where 'n' is a number from 0 to 255.
An IP address uniquely identifies a node on a TCP/IP network.
Duplicate IP addresses on a TCP/IP network are not allowed. For
more information on IP addresses, see Appendix A.
Subnet Mask
If subnetting is used, use this field to manually assign a subnet
mask. A subnet mask is a 32-bit number that, when applied to an
IP address, determines which bits specify the network and
subnet, and which bits uniquely specify the node.
For more information on subnet masks, see Appendix A.
Default Gateway
Identifies the IP address of a router or computer that is used to
connect to other networks or subnetworks.
Domain Name
Specifies the name of the Domain Name System (DNS) domain
that the HP Jetdirect print server resides in (for example,

Syslog Priority
Controls the filtering of syslog messages that are sent to the
syslog server. The filter range is 0 to 8, with 0 being the most
specific and 8 being the most general. Only messages that are
lower than the filter level specified (that is, higher in priority) are
reported. The default value is 8 which reports all syslog
messages. A value of zero effectively disables syslog reporting.
Idle Timeout
Specifies the number of seconds that an idle connection is
allowed to remain open. Up to 3600 seconds can be set. 270 is
the default value. If set to 0, the timeout is disabled and TCP/IP
connections will remain open until closed by the device at the
other end of the network (for example, a workstation).
TTL/SLP
Specifies the IP multicast Time To Live (TTL) discovery setting
for Service Location Protocol (SLP) packets. The default value is
4 hops (the number of routers from the local network). The range
is 1-15. If set to -1, multicast capability is disabled.
For print servers configured for Auto IP (link-local) addresses, this
field will be ignored. TTL on outbound packets will always be set

Firmware Upgrade
For print servers that support firmware upgrades, this page allows
you to upgrade the print server with new features.
The firmware upgrade file for the print server must be available on
your system. To identify and retrieve the appropriate upgrade file,
visit HP online support at:
http://www.hp.com/go/webjetadmin_firmware
On that page, do the following:
1. Locate the print server model and the upgrade file.
2. Check the upgrade file version and verify that it is more recent
than the print server’s installed version. If it is, then download
the file. If not, then you do not need to upgrade.
To upgrade the print server using the embedded Web server:
1. Enter the path to the upgrade file or click Browse to locate it.
2. Then click Upgrade Firmware.
LPD Queues
The LPD Queues page allows you to specify LPD (line printer
daemon) print queues on the Jetdirect print server. For more
information on LPD printing and print queues, see Chapter 5,
“Configuring for LPD Printing”.
LPD printing must be enabled on the print server before you can
set LPD queues. If LPD is disabled, go to the Misc. Settings tab to
enable it.
If LPD printing is enabled, ten different named print queues are
available. Four of these queues are configured automatically and
their parameters cannot be changed. The remaining six queues can
be defined by the user.
The six user-defined queues can be set up with character strings -such as job control commands -- that are automatically added before
or after the print job. You can define up to eight named strings, and
you can set up each queue so that any of these named strings
precedes the print data (“prepend string name”) or follows the print
data (“append string name”).
LPD Queue Parameters for setting up LPD queues are described
below. See Table 4.6.
ENWW
Using the Embedded Web Server 108
Table 4.6
LPD Queue Parameters (1 of 3)
Item
Description
Queue Name
Name of the user-defined queue. This name can be up to 32
characters long, and can consist of any displayable ASCII
characters. You can define up to six user-defined queues.
Prepend String
Name
Enter the name of one or more strings to be added before (or
prepended to) the print data. You specify string names and
values in the table at the bottom of the page.
To prepend a long string, multiple string names may be
concatenated, that is, entered and separated by a “+” character.
For example, to prepend a long string that has been divided into
two separate strings, enter:
<stringname1>+<stringname2>
where stringname1 and stringname2 are specified as two
separate string names with different values.
Append String
Name
Enter the name of one or more strings to be added after (or
appended to) the print data. You specify string names and values
in the table at the bottom of the page.
To append a long string, multiple string names may be
concatenated, that is, entered and separated by a “+” character.
For example, to append a long string that has been divided into

Table 4.6
LPD Queue Parameters (2 of 3)
Item
Description
Queue Type
Processing instruction for the queue. Choose from these four
queue types:
●
RAW -- No processing. The line printer daemon treats the
data in a raw queue as a print job that has already been
formatted in PCL, PostScript, or HP-GL/2, and sends it to the
printer without modification. (Note that any user-defined
prepend or append string will be added to the job in the
appropriate position.)
●
TEXT -- Carriage return added. The line printer daemon treats
data in text queues as unformatted or ASCII text, and adds a
carriage return to each line before sending it to the printer.
●
AUTO -- Automatic. The line printer daemon uses
autosensing to determine whether the print data should be
sent as raw or text.
●
BINPS -- Binary PostScript. This instructs the PostScript
interpreter that the printjob is to be interpreted as Binary
PostScript data.
Default Queue
Name
Name of the queue to be used if the queue specified for a print
job is unknown. By default, the Default Queue Name is AUTO.
String Name
Name of a character string. You may define up to eight character
strings for use in LPD queues; this parameter names the string,
and the Value parameter defines the content of the string.
Prepend and Append string names (specified in the table at the
top of the browser window) must be chosen from the names
specified here. The string name can be up to 32 characters long,
and can consist of any displayable ASCII characters.
ENWW
Using the Embedded Web Server 110
Table 4.6
LPD Queue Parameters (3 of 3)
Item
Description
Value
The content of the string. The String Name parameter names
the string; the Value parameter defines its content. When a string
name is specified for a prepend or append string (in the table at
the top of the browser window), the line printer daemon sends
the value of that string to the printer before or after the print data
(as appropriate).
Character values can be anywhere in the extended ASCII range
of 0 to 255 (hex 00 to FF). You can specify a non-printing
character using its hexadecimal value, by entering a backslash
followed by two hexadecimal characters. For example, to enter
the escape character (hex 1B), type in \1B. If your string includes
the backslash character itself, specify it as \5C. The maximum
number of characters you can type into this field is 240. The
characters in the field are checked for hexadecimal values,
converted if necessary, and stored internally. The maximum
number of characters stored internally in the string is 80; any
characters that exceed this are discarded.
To set up a user-defined print queue, you first define the strings,
assign them as prepend or append strings, and define the queue
type. Once you have defined an LPD queue, you specify its use by
setting up an LPD printer that uses that queue. For instance, if you
set up string “a” with a value of “abc” and string “z” with a value of
“xyz”, you can define print queue “az_queue” with a prepend string
of “a”, an append string of “z”, and a queue type of “raw”. Then, when
you send a print job consisting of <formatted_text> through queue
az_queue, the job sent to the printer is “abc<formatted_text>xyz”.
Instructions for setting up an LPD printer are different for different
operating systems; refer to Chapter 5, “Configuring for LPD
Printing” for details.
ENWW
Using the Embedded Web Server 111
Example. If you had an LPD printer and wanted to reset it at the
start of each print job, you could set up a user-defined print queue
named “clear_printer” that issues a PCL reset command (Escape-E)
at the beginning of each job. You could set this up as follows:
First, set up the print queue:
a. Name a string: Type "reset_string" into the String Name
field in row 1.
b. Define the string's value: Type "\1BE" (Escape-E) into the
Value field in row 1. (Alternatively, you could type
"\1B\45".)
c.
Name the queue: Type "clear_printer" into the Queue
Name field in row 5.
d. Set up the prepend string: Type "reset_string" into the
Prepend String field in row 5.
e.
Leave the Append String field in row 5 blank.
f.
Set the queue type: Using the pull-down menu, set the
Queue Type field in row 5 to "RAW".
Then, set up the printer to use the queue, making sure to specify
"clear_printer" when asked for a queue name. (For details of setting
up the printer, refer to Chapter 5, “Configuring for LPD Printing”.)
After that, any print jobs sent to the printer -- either from the server
or from a client computer that has set up that printer -- will include
a reset command at the beginning of the job.

Using the Embedded Web Server 117
Printer Password Synchronization. Most printers provide
password-protected access to printer configuration and status
settings. The password is set through security Web pages provided
by the printer. For these printers, the administrator password for
the printer and the Jetdirect print server are synchronized so that
the same password is used to access both printer and networking
configuration pages. For printers that support password
synchronization, the same password is used regardless of the
embedded Web page (printer Security page or networking Admin.
Account page) in which the password was set.
If password synchronization is lost on these printers, recovery may
require one of the following procedures:
●
Restore both the printer and the Jetdirect print server to
factory-default states (for example, through a cold-reset), and
then reconfigure your settings.
●
Manually set the same administrator password using both the
printer Security page and the networking Admin. Account
page.
Certificates
(Full-featured HP Jetdirect print servers only) This tab provides
access to installation, configuration and management services for
X.509 digital certificates. A digital certificate is an electronic
message typically containing, among other things, a key (a short
string used for encryption and decryption) and a digital signature.
Certificates may be issued and signed by a trusted third party
(commonly called a Certificate Authority, or CA), which may exist
internal or external to the organization. Or certificates may be
“self-signed”, which is similar to validating your own identity.
Note
ENWW
While self-signed certificates are permitted and
allow data encryption, they do not ensure valid
authentication.
Using the Embedded Web Server 118
The Certificates page provides the status of the certificates
installed on the HP Jetdirect print server:
●
Jetdirect certificate. The Jetdirect certificate is used to
validate the identity of the Jetdirect device to clients and to
network authentication servers.
By factory default, a self-signed Jetdirect certificate is
preinstalled. This allows the embedded Web server to
immediately use HTTPS and appear as a secure site when
accessed from your Web browser.
Click View to view the contents of an installed Jetdirect
certificate, or click Configure to update or install a new one. See
Configuring Certificates.
When installed, a Jetdirect certificate will be saved across a
cold-reset, which is used to restore the print server to
factory-default values.
●
CA Certificate. A certificate from a trusted third party, or
Certificate Authority (CA), is used to validate the identity of a
network authentication server during selected authentication
methods that use EAP (Extensible Authentication Protocol). The
authentication server’s identity is validated when information on
the CA certificate matches the information on a certificate
received from the authentication server.
A CA certificate for the print server is a certificate that was used
to sign the authentication server’s certificate. Therefore, the
Certificate Authority for the authentication server’s certificate
must also be used for the CA certificate.
Click View to view the contents of an installed Jetdirect
certificate, or click Configure to update or install a new one. See
Configuring Certificates.
A CA certificate is not saved when the print server is reset to
factory-default values.
The maximum certificate size that can be installed on the HP
Jetdirect print server is 3072 bytes.

Certificate Validity Period
With self-signed certificates, the browser will identify the certificate as self-signed
for each new Web session and may cause a security alert message. This
message can be bypassed if the user adds it to their browser’s certificate store
or disables browser alerts (not recommended).
Self-signed certificates are not necessarily secure because the certificate owner
is merely confirming his own identity instead of verification by a trusted third party.
Certificates from a trusted third party are considered more secure.

certificate currently installed on the print server for use on other print servers.
Using this option, you are prompted by the following screen:
●
Export the Jetdirect certificate and private key
Delete CA Certificate. This option is used to remove the CA certificate installed
on the Jetdirect print server. This option appears when a CA certificate for EAP
authentication has been installed.
CAUTION: If the CA Certificate is deleted, EAP authentication will be disabled
and network access will be denied.
The CA Certificate will also be removed on a cold-reset of the print server, where
factory-default settings are restored.
Certificate Validity
Use this screen to specify how long the Jetdirect self-signed certificate will be valid.
This screen appears only when a self-signed certificate is preinstalled and you
click Edit Settings to update the validity period. It specifies the current
Coordinated Universal Time (UTC). UTC is a time scale maintained by the
International Bureau of Weights and Measures. It adjusts for differences between
Greenwich Mean Time and atomic time. It is set at 0 degrees longitude on the
prime meridian.
The Validity Start Date is calculated from the PC’s clock settings.
The Validity Period specifies the number of days (1 to 3650) that the certificate
is valid, starting from the Validity Start Date. A valid entry (1 to 3650) is required.
The default is 5 years.

Access Control
Use this tab to display the Access Control List (ACL) on the
HP Jetdirect print server. An access control list (or host access list)
specifies individual host systems, or networks of host systems, that
will be allowed to access the print server and the attached network
device. Up to 10 entries can be included on the list. If the list is
empty (no hosts are listed), any supported system can access the
print server.
CAUTION
Use caution when using this feature. You may lose
your ability to communicate with the HP Jetdirect
print server if your system is not properly specified
in the list, or access through HTTP is disabled.
For use of the host access list as a security feature,
see Chapter 7.
Note
By default, hosts with HTTP connections (for
example, through the embedded Web server or IPP
-- the Internet Printing Protocol) are allowed access
to the print server regardless of access control list
entries.
To disable access by HTTP hosts, clear the Allow
Web Server (HTTP) access checkbox at the
bottom of the list.
Host systems are specified by their IP addresses or network
number. If the network contains subnets, an address mask may be
used to identify whether the IP address designates an individual
host system or a group of host systems.

Mgmt. Protocols
This link provides access to management communications and
other protocols that affect security.
Web Mgmt.
Use this tab to manage communications with the embedded Web
server from Web browsers. This tab appears only for full-featured
print servers.
Secure, encrypted Web-based communication is provided through
the Secure HTTP (HTTPS) protocol. If configured to require
HTTPS, the embedded Web server routes HTTPS communications
through port 443, the well-known port for HTTPS traffic. Although
ports 80, 280, or 631 continue for Internet Printing Protocol (IPP)
use, other non-secure communications (HTTP) are redirected to
HTTPS. Redirection of your browser to use HTTPS may be
transparent depending on your browser’s capabilities.
HP Jetdirect embedded print servers, by factory default, are
configured to allow HTTPS or HTTP.
Although not recommended, you may choose to accept both HTTPS
and HTTP communications that are not secure by disabling
(clearing) the Encrypt All Web Communication checkbox.
To support the use of HTTPS communications, a Jetdirect
certificate must be installed. A factory-default, self-signed
certificate is preinstalled for initial use. Click the Configure button
to update the preinstalled certificate, or to install a new one. For
more information, see Configuring Certificates.
The minimum encryption strength that will be allowed must be
specified when using a Jetdirect certificate. You may select Low
(default), Medium, or High encryption strength. For example,
selecting Low will allow medium or high encryption levels to be
used whereas selecting High will only allow high encryption levels.
For each encryption strength, ciphers are specified to identify the
weakest cipher allowed. Early browsers may only support 40-bit
(Low) encryption levels.
ENWW
Using the Embedded Web Server 126
Note
Cipher suites support different levels of encryption
strength. The cipher suites currently supported for
encryption and decryption are DES (Data
Encryption Standard, 56-bit), RC4 (40-bit or
128-bit), and 3DES (168-bit).
SNMP
Use this tab to enable or disable SNMP v1, v2c and v3 agents on
the print server, depending on the print server model. Value-based
print servers do not support an SNMP v3 agent. For a description
of SNMP selections, see Table 4.4.
SNMP v3. The HP Jetdirect print server includes an SNMP v3
(Simple Network Management Protocol, version 3) agent, for
enhanced SNMP security. The SNMP v3 agent employs a
User-based Security Model for SNMP v3 (RFC 2574), which
features user-authentication and data privacy through encryption.
The SNMP v3 agent is enabled when an initial SNMP v3 account
on the print server is created. Once the account is created, any
SNMP management application, if properly configured, can access
or disable the account.
CAUTION
If you use HP Web Jetadmin to manage your
devices, you should use HP Web Jetadmin to
seamlessly configure SNMP v3 and other security
settings on the print server.
Using the embedded Web server to create the
SNMP v3 account will erase any existing SNMP v3
accounts. In addition, the SNMP v3 account
information will need to be implemented on the
SNMP management application.
You may create the initial account by specifying the HMAC-MD5
authentication and CBC-DES data privacy encryption keys used by
your SNMP v3 management application.
ENWW
Using the Embedded Web Server 127
CAUTION
You should disable Telnet and ensure secure
embedded Web communications through HTTPS is
enabled before creating the initial SNMP v3
account. This will help to prevent access or
interception of account information over a
connection that is not secure.
SNMP v1 and v2c agents can coexist with the SNMP
v3 agent. However, to fully secure SNMP access,
you should disable SNMP v1 and v2c.

802.1x Authentication
This page allows you to configure 802.1X authentication settings on
the Jetdirect print server as required for client authentication on
your network. In addition, you can reset the 802.1X authentication
settings to factory-default values.
Use caution when changing the 802.1X
authentication settings; you may lose your
connection. If communication with the
printer/MFP device is lost, you may need to reset
the print server to a factory-default state and then
reinstall the device.
CAUTION
For most 802.1X networks, the infrastructure components (such as
LAN switches) must use 802.1X protocols to control a port's access
to the network. If these ports do not allow partial or guest access,
the print server may need to be configured with your 802.1X
parameters prior to connection. To configure initial 802.1X settings
before connecting to your network, you can use an isolated LAN, or
a direct computer connection using a cross-over cable.
The supported 802.1X authentication protocols and associated
configuration depend on the print server model and firmware
version. This model and version support settings as listed in

About LPD
Line Printer Daemon (LPD) refers to the protocol and programs
associated with line-printer spooling services that may be installed
on various TCP/IP systems.
Some of the widely used systems in which the HP Jetdirect print
server functionality supports LPD include:
●
●
●
●
●
●
●
Berkeley-based (BSD) UNIX systems
HP-UX
Solaris
IBM AIX
Linux
Windows NT/2000
Mac OS
The UNIX configuration examples in this section show the syntax
for BSD-based UNIX systems. The syntax for your system may vary.
See your system documentation for the correct syntax.
The LPD functionality can be used with any host
implementation of LPD that complies with the
RFC 1179 document. The process for configuring
printer spoolers, however, may differ. See your
system documentation for information on
configuring these systems.
Note
The LPD programs and protocol include the following:
Table 5.1
LPD Programs and Protocols
Program Name
Purpose of Program
lpr
Queues jobs for printing
lpq
Displays print queues
lprm
Removes jobs from print queues
lpc
Controls print queues
lpd
Scans and prints the files if the specified printer is
connected to the system.
If the specified printer is connected to another
system, this process forwards the files to an lpd
process on the remote system where the files are
to be printed.
ENWW
Configuring for LPD Printing 135
Requirements for Configuring LPD
Before you can use LPD printing, your printer must be properly
connected to the network through the HP Jetdirect print server, and
you must have print server status information. This information is
listed on the HP Jetdirect printer configuration page. If you have
not printed a configuration page from your printer, see your printer
documentation for instructions. You must also have the following:
●
An operating system that supports LPD printing.
●
Superuser (root) or Administrator access to your system.
●
The LAN hardware address (or station address) of the print
server. This address is printed with print server status
information on the HP Jetdirect configuration page and is of
the form:
HARDWARE ADDRESS: xxxxxxxxxxxx
where x is a hexadecimal digit (for example, 0001E6123ABC).
●
An IP address configured on the HP Jetdirect print server.
LPD Setup Overview
The following steps are necessary to configure the HP Jetdirect
print server for LPD printing:
1. Setting up IP parameters.
2. Setting up print queues.
3. Printing a test file.
The following sections provide detailed descriptions for each step.
Step 1. Setting Up IP Parameters
To set up IP parameters on the HP Jetdirect print server, refer to
Chapter 3. For more information on TCP/IP networks, refer to
Appendix A.
ENWW
Configuring for LPD Printing 136
Step 2. Setting Up Print Queues
You must set up a print queue for each printer or printer personality
(PCL or PostScript) you use on your system. Also, different queues
are required for formatted and unformatted files. The queue names
text and raw in the following examples (see rp tag) have special
meanings.
Table 5.2
Supported Queue Names
raw, raw1, raw2, raw3
no processing
text, text1, text2, text3
carriage return added
auto, auto1, auto2, auto3
automatic
binps, binps1, binps2, binps3
binary PostScript
<user-defined>
defined by user; optionally including
command strings before and after the print
data
The line printer daemon on the HP Jetdirect print server treats
data in the text queue as unformatted text or ASCII, and adds a
carriage return to each line before sending it to the printer. (Note
that the actual observed behavior is that a PCL line termination
command (value of 2) is issued at the beginning of the job.)
The line printer daemon treats data in the raw queue as formatted
files in PCL, PostScript, or HP-GL/2 languages and sends the data
without change to the printer.
Data in the auto queue will be automatically processed as text or
raw, as appropriate.
For the binps queue, the PostScript interpreter interprets the print
job as binary PostScript data.
For user-defined queue names, the line printer daemon adds
user-defined strings before or after the print data (user-defined
print queues can be set up through Telnet, Chapter 3, or the
embedded Web server, Chapter 4).
If the queue name is not one of the above, the HP Jetdirect print
server assumes it to be raw1.
Step 3. Printing a Test File
Print a test file using the LPD commands. For instructions, see the
information provided for your system.

Configuring Print Queues for BSD-based Systems
Edit the /etc/printcap file to include the following entries:
printer_name|short_printer_name:\
:lp=:\
:rm=node_name:\
:rp=remote_printer_name_argument:\ (this should be
text, raw, binps, auto, or user-defined)
:lf=/usr/spool/lpd/error_log_filename:\
:sd=/usr/spool/lpd/printer_name:
where printer_name identifies the printer to the user,
node_name identifies the printer on the network, and
remote_printer_name_argument is the print queue
designation.
For more information on printcap, see the printcap man page.
Example: Printcap Entries for ASCII or Text Printers
lj1_text|text1:\
:lp=:\
:rm=laserjet1:\
:rp=text:\

:rm=laserjet1:\
:rp=raw:\
:lf=/usr/spool/lpd/lj1_raw.log:\
:sd=/usr/spool/lpd/lj1_raw:
If your printer does not support automatic switching between
PostScript, PCL, and HP-GL/2 languages, use the printer's control
panel (if the printer has one) to select the printer language or rely
on the application to select the printer language via commands
embedded in the print data.
Make sure your users know the printer names for the printers, since
they must type those names on the command line for printing.
Create the spooling directory by making the following entries. At
the root directory, type:
mkdir /usr/spool/lpd
cd /usr/spool/lpd
mkdir printer_name_1 printer_name_2
chown daemon printer_name_1 printer_name_2
chgrp daemon printer_name_1 printer_name_2
chmod g+w printer_name_1 printer_name_2
where printer_name_1 and printer_name_2 refer to the
printers to be spooled. You may spool several printers. The following
example shows the command to create the spooling directories for
printers used for text (or ASCII) printing and for PCL or PostScript
printing.
Example: Creating Spooling Directory for Text and
PCL/PostScript Printers
mkdir /usr/spool/lpd
cd /usr/spool/lpd
mkdir lj1_text lj1_raw
chown daemon lj1_text lj1_raw
chgrp daemon lj1_text lj1_raw
chmod g+w lj1_text lj1_raw

Configuring Print Queues Using SAM (HP-UX systems)
On HP-UX systems you can use the SAM utility to configure remote
print queues for printing “text” (ASCII) files or “raw” (PCL,
PostScript, or other printer language) files.
Before you execute the SAM program, select an IP address for
the HP Jetdirect print server and set up an entry for it in the
/etc/hosts file on your system running HP-UX.
1. Start the SAM utility as a superuser.
2. Select Peripheral Devices from the Main menu.
3. Select Printers/Plotters from the Peripheral Devices menu.
4. Select Printers/Plotters from the Printers/Plotters menu.
5. Select Add a Remote Printer from the Actions list, then select
a printer name.
Examples: my_printer or printer1
6. Select a remote system name.
Example: jetdirect1 (node name of the HP Jetdirect print
server)
7. Select a remote printer name.
Type text for ASCII or raw for PostScript, PCL, or HP-GL/2.
Type auto to let the line printer daemon select automatically.
Type binps to instruct the PostScript interpreter to interpret
the print job as binary PostScript data.
Type the name of a user-defined queue to include pre-defined
strings before and/or after the print data (user-defined print
queues can be set up through Telnet, Chapter 2, and the
embedded Web server, Chapter 4).
8. Check for a remote printer on a BSD system. You must type Y.
9. Click OK at the bottom of the menu. If the configuration is
successful, the program prints the message:
The printer has been added and is ready to accept
print requests.

10. Click OK and select Exit from the List menu.
11. Select Exit Sam.
Note
By default, the lpsched is not running. Make sure
you turn the scheduler on when you set up your
print queues.
Printing a Test File
To verify that the printer and print server connections are correct,
print a test file.
1. At the UNIX system prompt type:
lpr -Pprinter_name file_name
where printer_name is the designated printer and
file_name refers to the file to be printed.
Examples (for BSD-based systems):
Text File: lpr -Ptext1 textfile
PCL File: lpr -Praw1 pclfile.pcl
PostScript File: lpr -Praw1 psfile.ps
HP-GL/2 File: lpr -Praw1 hpglfile.hpg
For HP-UX systems, substitute lp -d for lpr -P.
2. To get print status, type the following at the UNIX prompt:
lpq -Pprinter_name
where printer_name is the designated printer.
Examples (for BSD-based systems):
lpq -Ptext1
lpq -Praw1
For HP-UX systems, substitute lpstat for lpq -P to get print
status.
This completes the process for configuring the HP Jetdirect print
server to use LPD.

FTP Printing
Introduction
FTP (File Transfer Protocol) is a basic TCP/IP connectivity utility
to transfer data between systems. FTP printing is a way to use FTP
to send print files from a client system to an HP Jetdirect-connected
printer. In an FTP printing session, the client connects and sends
a print file to the HP Jetdirect FTP server which in turn passes the
print file to the printer.
The HP Jetdirect FTP server can be enabled or disabled through a
configuration tool, such as Telnet (see Chapter 3) or the embedded
Web server (see Chapter 4).
Requirements
FTP printing described here requires the following:
●
TCP/IP client systems with FTP that complies with RFC 959.
Note
ENWW
For the most recent list of tested systems, visit HP
online support at
www.hp.com/support/net_printing.
152
Print Files
The HP Jetdirect FTP server transfers print files to the printer but
does not interpret them. For proper printing, print files must be in
a language recognized by the printer (such as PostScript, PCL, or
unformatted text). For formatted print jobs, you must first print to
a file from your application using the driver for the selected printer,
then transfer the print file to the printer through an FTP session.
For formatted print files, use binary (image) type transfers.
Using FTP Printing
FTP Connections
Similar to standard FTP file transfers, FTP printing uses two TCP
connections: a control connection and a data connection.
Once an FTP session is opened, it remains active until either the
client closes the connection or the data and control connections
are idle for a time that exceeds the idle timeout period (default is
270 seconds). The idle timeout can be set through various TCP/IP
configuration tools, such as BOOTP/TFTP, Telnet, printer’s control
panel (see Chapter 3), the embedded Web server (see Chapter 4), or
management software.
ENWW
FTP Printing 153
Control Connection
Using standard FTP, a control connection is opened by the client
to the FTP server on the HP Jetdirect print server. FTP control
connections are used to exchange commands between the client
and the FTP server. The HP Jetdirect print server supports up to
four control connections (or FTP sessions) simultaneously. If the
number of allowed connections is exceeded, a message indicating
that service is not available will be displayed.
FTP control connections use TCP port 21.
Data Connection
A second connection, a data connection, is created each time a file
is transferred between the client and the FTP server. The client
controls the creation of a data connection by issuing the commands
that require a data connection (such as FTP ls, dir or put
commands).
Although the ls and dir commands are always accepted, the
HP Jetdirect FTP server supports a single data connection for
printing at a time.
The transmission mode for an FTP data connection with the
HP Jetdirect print server is always in stream mode, which marks
the end-of-file by closing the data connection.
Once a data connection is established, the file transfer type (ASCII
or binary) can be specified. Clients may attempt to autonegotiate a
transfer type, and the default transfer type depends on the client
system (for example, Windows NT may default to ASCII, while
UNIX may default to binary). To specify the transfer type, enter
the bin or ascii command at the FTP prompt.
ENWW
FTP Printing 154
FTP Login
To start an FTP session, enter the following command from a
MS-DOS or UNIX command prompt:
ftp <IP address>
where <IP address> is the valid IP address or node name
configured for the HP Jetdirect print server. See Figure 6.1
Figure 6.1 FTP Login Example
If the connection is successful, a Ready message will be displayed.
After a successful connection, the user is prompted for a login name
and password. The default is the client’s login name. The Jetdirect
FTP server will allow any user name. Passwords are ignored.
If login is successful, a message “230” will be displayed on the client
system. In addition, the available HP Jetdirect ports for printing
will be displayed. HP Jetdirect print servers supported in this guide
provide a single port (Port 1). For a typical FTP printing session,
see “Example of an FTP Session.”
ENWW
FTP Printing 155
Ending the FTP Session
To end an FTP session, type quit or bye.
Prior to ending an FTP session, a Ctrl C command
is recommended to ensure the data connection is
closed.
Note

Resetting to Factory Defaults
Parameters on the HP Jetdirect print server (for example, the
IP address) can be reset to factory default values using the following
procedures:
CAUTION
●
A Jetdirect X.509 certificate, installed for SSL/TLS
secure Web services, will be saved over a cold reset
to factory default values. However, a Certificate
Authority (CA) certificate installed to validate a
network authentication server will not be saved.
HP LaserJet Printer with Embedded Print Server
In most cases, the HP Jetdirect print server can be reset to
factory defaults when a cold-reset is performed on the printer.
For several HP LaserJet printers, a cold-reset is performed by
power cycling the printer while pressing the Start, or
Pause/Resume, button. For other printers, refer to your printer
manuals. Or, visit http://www.hp.com/go/support and search for
document file bpj02300.html.
Note
Some printers provide a factory reset option for
the printer through the printer’s control panel.
However, this reset option for the printer may not
reset the HP Jetdirect print server. When you
attempt to reset to factory default values, print a
Jetdirect configuration page to confirm that
factory-reset values have been assigned.

Procedure 2: Printing an HP Jetdirect
Configuration Page
The HP Jetdirect configuration page is an important
troubleshooting tool. The information on this page reveals the
status of your network and the HP Jetdirect print server. The
ability to print a configuration page provides an indication that
the printer is operating correctly. See Chapter 9 for information
on the HP Jetdirect configuration page.
Note
For a TCP/IP network, the Jetdirect configuration
page can also be viewed from a browser by accessing
the Jetdirect embedded Web server. See Chapter 4
for more information.
Check the following items if the configuration page does not print.
1. Did you perform the correct steps on the printer to print the
configuration page?
The steps required to print a configuration page vary between
different printers. In most cases, a Jetdirect configuration page
prints when you print a printer configuration page. See your
printer Use guides or control panel Help system.
2. Is there a print job in process?
You cannot print an HP Jetdirect configuration page to the
printer while a print job is in process. Wait until the print job is
complete, then print the configuration page.
3. Does an error message appear on the printer control panel
display?
■
■
ENWW
See Procedure 3 in this section for a list of network-related
error messages and corrective actions.
See your printer documentation for a complete list of control
panel messages and corrective actions.
Troubleshooting the HP Jetdirect Print Server 169
Procedure 3: Resolving Printer Display
Error Messages
Check the following information to resolve network-related error
messages that appear on the printer control panel display. This
information assumes you have already printed a configuration page.
1. Does the printer’s control panel display a Service Error message,
such as 49.XXXX, 79.XXXX or 8X.XXXX error?
■
■
■
■
■
Refer to your printer manuals to interpret the error message.
If you upgraded the Jetdirect firmware recently, power the
print server off/on using the printer’s On/Off switch.
Verify the network cable is properly connected.
Inspect and verify the configuration parameters on the
Jetdirect configuration page. To interpret HP Jetdirect
configuration page messages, see Chapter 9.
Record all error codes and contact your service provider. For
warranty service, include all diagnostic and configuration
pages with the faulty print server.
2. Does INITIALIZING/DO NOT POWER OFF or similar message appear
on the display?
Wait for ten minutes to see if it clears. If it does not, you may
need to replace the HP Jetdirect print server.
3. Does a 40 ERROR appear on the printer’s control panel display?
The HP Jetdirect print server detected a break in the data
communications. When this error occurs, the printer
goes offline.
A break in communications may result from the physical
network connection being disrupted or the server going down.
If your printer has an Auto Continue feature that is disabled or
off, you must press the appropriate key (Start or
Pause/Resume, for example) on the printer after the
communications problem is solved to put the printer back
online. Turning the Auto Continue feature on forces the printer
to reconnect without user intervention. However, this does not
solve the disconnect problem.
ENWW
Troubleshooting the HP Jetdirect Print Server 170
4. Does an Initializing or similar message appear on the display?
This is a normal message. Wait about 3 minutes for the message
to clear, or another message to appear. If another message
appears, see the printer’s documentation and configuration
pages for additional information.
5. Does a message other than READYappear on the display?
See your printer documentation for a complete list of control
panel messages and corrective actions.

Troubleshooting the HP Jetdirect Print Server 171
Procedure 4: Resolving Printer Communication
Problems with the Network
Check the following items to verify that the printer is communicating
with the network. This information assumes you have already
printed a Jetdirect configuration page.
1. Are there any physical connection problems between the
workstation or file server and the HP Jetdirect print server?
Verify network cabling, connections, and router configurations.
Verify that network cable lengths meet network specifications.
2. Are your network cables connected properly?
Ensure the network cable connectors are properly connected. If
the problem continues, try a different cable or a different
network port on the hub or switch.
3. For 10/100Base-TX configurations, is autonegotiation properly
configured?
The speed and communication mode on the print server must
match the network for proper operation. Autonegotiation for the
print server may be configured from the printer’s control panel.
If the print server’s RJ-45 network
connector has indicator lights to
identify the connection speed, verify
that either the 10 Mbps or 100 Mbps
light is on.
10 Mbps
100 Mbps
4. Is the print server connected to an
802.1X network and properly configured for EAP/802.1X
operation?
The network must support the Extensible Authentication
Protocol (EAP) method configured for use on the print server.
Verify the configuration of the network’s 802.1X port. If it does
not allow guest or temporary access, you may need to
preconfigure the Jetdirect print server for 802.1X operation
before connection to your network. This is done using an isolated
LAN, or through a direct computer-to-printer connection using
a cross-over cable.
ENWW
Troubleshooting the HP Jetdirect Print Server 172
5. Can the print server’s ping test communicate with any remote
node on the network?
Use the Jetdirect Diagnostic menu from the printer’s control
panel to run a ping test with a remote node. For a description
of the Jetdirect Diagnostic menu, see Appendix B.
6. Have any software applications been added to the network?
Make sure they are compatible and that they are installed
correctly with the correct printer drivers.
7. Are other users able to print?
The problem may be workstation-specific. Check the
workstation network drivers, printer drivers, and redirection
(capture in Novell NetWare).
8. If other users are able to print, are they using the same network
operating system?
Check your system for proper network operating system setup.
9. Is your protocol enabled on the HP Jetdirect print server?
Check the status of your protocol settings on the Jetdirect
configuration page. See Chapter 9 for information on the
configuration page. (On TCP/IP networks, you can also use the
embedded Web server to check status of other protocols. See
Chapter 4.)
10. Is there an error message in the protocol sections on the
Jetdirect configuration page?
See Chapter 9 “HP Jetdirect Configuration Page” for a list of
print server error messages.

Troubleshooting an LPD UNIX
Configuration
The troubleshooting steps below describe how to troubleshoot
printing problems you may have with the HP Jetdirect print server.
1. Print a Jetdirect configuration page.
2. Verify that the IP configuration values are correct. If they are
not, reconfigure the HP Jetdirect print server.
3. Log onto the host system and type:
ping <IP address>
where <IP address> is the IP Address assigned to the printer.
4. If ping fails, make sure the IP Address on the configuration page
is correct. If it is correct, the problem is in the network.
5. If the ping test passes, print a test file. At the UNIX prompt,
type:
lpr -Pprinter_name test_file (BSD-based and Linux
systems)
where printer_name is the name of your printer and
test_file is an appropriate file (ASCII, PCL, PostScript,
HP-GL/2, or text) for the printer defined in the :rp tag in the
printcap file.
6. If the test file does not print, do the following:
■
■
■
■
ENWW
Check printcap entries.
Check printer status (using LPC or a similar process).
Examine the contents of the logfile for this printer, such as
/usr/spool/lpd/error_log_filename
Check other log files, such as
HP-UX: /usr/adm/syslog
Troubleshooting the HP Jetdirect Print Server 175
7. If the test file prints but is formatted incorrectly, do the
following:
■
Check :rp tag in printcap file.
Example 1 (suggested name for an ASCII or text printer):
text | lj1_text:\
:lp=:\
:rm=laserjet1:\
:rp=text:\
:lf=/usr/spool/lpd/ERRORLOG:\
:sd=/usr/spool/lpd/lj1_text:
Example 2 (suggested name for PostScript, PCL, or HP-GL/2
printers):
raw | lj1_raw:\
:lp=:\
:rm=laserjet:\
:rp=raw:\
:lf=/usr/spool/lpd/ERRORLOG:\
:sd=/usr/spool/lpd/lj1_raw:
8. Check that the printer is set up to print the type of test file you
specified: PCL, PostScript, HP-GL/2, or ASCII.
9. Check whether the printer was turned off or lost its LAN
connection in the middle of a print job. LPD queues may become
disabled or stop sending data if the printer is powered off or if
the LAN connection is broken when the printer is in the middle
of printing a job. (Example: power is turned off to fix a
paper jam.)
Use the HP-UX command lpstat -Pqname to find out if the
queue has been disabled after the printer has powered up again
or the connection is reestablished.
The disabled queue can be restarted using the following
command:
HP-UX: enable qname

A
TCP/IP Overview
Introduction
This appendix is intended to provide information to help you gain
a basic understanding of TCP/IP.
Similar to a common language that people use to communicate with
each other, TCP/IP (Transmission Control Protocol/Internet
Protocol) is a suite of protocols designed to define the way computers
and other devices communicate with each other over a network.
TCP/IP is rapidly becoming the most used set of protocols. The main
reason this is happening is the fact that the Internet is based on
TCP/IP. If you have a network that you wish to connect to the
internet, you must be using TCP/IP to communicate.
Internet Protocol (IP)
When information is sent across the network, the data is broken
down into small packets. Each packet is sent independently of one
another. Each packet is encoded with IP information, such as the
IP address of the sender and receiver. IP packets can be routed over
routers and gateways, devices that connect a network with other
networks.
IP communications is connectionless. When IP packets are sent,
there is no guarantee that they arrive at their destination in the
proper sequence. That task can be performed by higher level
protocols and applications thereby allowing IP communications to
be efficient.
Each node or device that will communicate directly onto the
network requires an IP address, including HP Jetdirect-connected
devices.
ENWW
205
Transmission Control Protocol (TCP)
TCP handles breaking the data into packets and recombining the
packets on the receiving end by providing a connection-oriented,
reliable, and guaranteed delivery service to another node on the
network. When data packets are received at their destination,
TCP calculates a checksum for each packet to verify the data is
not corrupt. If the data in the packet has been corrupted during
transmission, TCP discards the packet and requests that the packet
be resent.
User Datagram Protocol (UDP)
UDP provides similar services to TCP. However, UDP does not
acknowledge data receipt and supports request/reply transactions
with no added reliability or guarantee of delivery. UDP is used when
acknowledgment and reliability are not required, such as during a
“discovery broadcast.”
IP Address
Every host (workstation or node) on an IP network requires a
unique IP address for each network interface. This address is a
software address that is used to identify both the network and
specific hosts located on that network. Each IP address can be
divided into two separate parts: the network portion and the host
portion. It is possible for a host to query a server for a dynamic IP
address each time the device boots-up (for example, using DHCP
and BootP).
Note
NWW
When assigning IP addresses, always consult the IP
address administrator. Setting the wrong address
can disable other equipment operating on the
network or interfere with communications.
TCP/IP Overview 206
IP Address: (Network Portion)
Network addresses are managed by an organization in Norfolk,
Virginia recognized as InterNIC. InterNIC has been contracted by
the National Science Foundation to manage the Internet addresses
and domains. Network addresses are distributed to organizations
that are in turn responsible for making sure all attached devices or
hosts on the network are properly numbered. For more information
on the network portion of an IP address, see “IP Address Structure
and Class” and “Subnets” later in this appendix.
IP Address: (Host Portion)
Host addresses numerically identify specific network interfaces on
an IP network. Usually a host has only one network interface; thus,
only one IP address. Because no two devices can share the same
number at the same time, administrators typically maintain
address tables to assure correct assignment of addresses in the
host network.
ENWW
TCP/IP Overview 207
IP Address Structure and Class
An IP address is comprised of 32 bits of information and divided
into 4 sections containing 1 byte each section or 4 bytes total:
xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
For efficiency in routing, networks were broken down into three
classes, so routing can begin simply by identifying the leading
byte of information in the IP address. The three IP addresses
that InterNIC assigns are class A, B, and C. The network class
determines what each of the four IP address sections identify as
shown in Table A.1:

As illustrated in Table A.2, each network class differs by the leading

and the maximum number of hosts each class allows.

Configuring IP Parameters
TCP/IP configuration parameters (such as IP address, subnet mask,
default gateway) can be configured on the HP Jetdirect print server
in a variety of ways. These values can be configured manually (for
example, through Telnet, the embedded Web server, the arp and
ping commands, and HP management software), or they can be
automatically downloaded using DHCP or BOOTP each time the
print server is turned on. For configuration methods, see Chapter 3.
When powered on, a new HP Jetdirect print server that is unable
to retrieve a valid IP address from the network will automatically
assign itself a default IP address. The default IP address will depend
on the type of network to which the print server is connected. On a
small private network, a technique called link-local addressing is
used to assign a unique IP address in the range of 169.254.1.0 to
169.254.254.255, which should be valid. On a large or enterprise
network, a temporary address of 192.0.0.192 will be assigned until
it is properly configured for your network. The IP address
configured on your print server may be determined by inspecting
the Jetdirect configuration page for the print server.
Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP)
DHCP allows a group of devices to use a set of IP addresses that are
maintained by a DHCP server. The device or host sends a request
to the server, and if an IP address is available, the server assigns
it to that device.
BOOTP
BOOTP is a bootstrap protocol used to download configuration
parameters and host information from a network server. BOOTP
uses UDP for its transport. In order for devices to boot and load
configuration information into RAM, they must communicate
through the bootstrap protocol BOOTP as a client with their server.
To configure the device, the client broadcasts a boot request packet
containing at least the hardware address of the device (HP Jetdirect
print server hardware address). The server answers with a boot
reply packet containing the information the device needs
to configure.
ENWW
TCP/IP Overview 209
Subnets
When an IP network address for a particular network class is
assigned to an organization, no provision is made for more than
one network being present at that location. Local network
administrators use subnets to partition a network into several
different subnetworks. Splitting a network into subnets can result
in better performance and improved use of limited network
address space.
Subnet Mask
The subnet mask is a mechanism used to divide a single IP network
into several different subnetworks. For a given network class, a
portion of an IP address that would normally be used to identify a
node is used, instead, to identify a subnetwork. A subnet mask
is applied to each IP address to specify the portion used for
subnetworks, and the portion used to identify the node.
For example, see Table A.3.

As illustrated in Table A.3, the Class A IP network address “15”
has been assigned to company ABC. To allow additional networks
at company ABC’s site, the subnet mask of 255.255.0.0 is used. This
subnet mask specifies that the second byte of the IP address will be
used to identify up to 254 subnets. Using this designation, each
device is uniquely identified on its own subnet, but company ABC
can incorporate up to 254 subnetworks without violating their
assigned address space.
NWW
TCP/IP Overview 210
Gateways
Gateways (routers) are used to connect networks together.
Gateways are devices that act as translators between systems that
do not use the same communication protocols, data formatting,
structures, languages, or architectures. Gateways repackage the
data packets and change the syntax to match that of the destination
system. When networks are divided into subnets, gateways are
required to connect one subnet to another.
Default Gateway
The Default Gateway is the gateway or router that, if not specified,
will be used to move packets between networks. It is specified by an
IP address.
If multiple gateways or routers exist, then the default gateway is
typically the address of the first, or nearest, gateway or router. If
no gateways or routers exist, then the default gateway will typically
assume the IP address of the network node (such as the workstation
or HP Jetdirect print server).
Syslog Server
A syslog server is a system on the network (typically a UNIX system)
that can receive and log syslog messages from other devices on the
network. Syslog messages allow administrators to monitor status
or troubleshoot network devices.
A syslog server requires software that provides syslog capabilities
running on the server. UNIX systems provide a daemon, syslogd,
that monitors User Datagram Protocol (UDP) port 514 for incoming
messages. The messages are processed depending on their priority
and on how syslogd is set up to operate.
You can configure the HP Jetdirect print server with the syslog
server’s IP address. When a syslog server is configured, both the
HP Jetdirect print server and attached device can send syslog
messages using UDP.
ENWW
TCP/IP Overview 211
The syslog server may not receive all syslog events from the
HP Jetdirect print server:
●
●
●
UDP does not guarantee delivery of messages.
The HP Jetdirect print server attempts to eliminate duplicate
messages (to minimize unnecessary network traffic).
The volume of messages sent by the HP Jetdirect print server is
configurable.
Methods to configure HP Jetdirect syslog parameters include
BOOTP, DHCP, Telnet, the embedded Web server, and
management software. For selected printers, a menu
accessed through the printer control panel provides limited syslog
configuration. The syslog configuration command or parameter
entries may vary depending on the method used. For more
information, see the applicable sections in this guide.
Selected syslog parameters on the HP Jetdirect print server are
listed in Table A.4.

Item
Description
Syslog Server
IP address
IP address of a syslog server for sending syslog messages. If
zero (0.0.0.0) or not specified, syslog messages are disabled.
Syslog Maximum
Messages
The number of syslog messages that can be sent by the
HP Jetdirect print server on a per-minute basis, from 0 to 1000.
This parameter helps to control the syslog file size. The default
is 10 messages per minute. If 0, the number of syslog messages
is not restricted.
Syslog Priority
A method for filtering syslog messages that are sent to the
syslog server. The range is 0 through 8, with 0 the most specific
and 8 the most general. Only messages that are lower than the
specified filter level (or higher in priority) are reported. The
default is 8, messages of all priorities are sent. If 0, all syslog
messages are disabled.
Syslog Facility
A code used to identify the source facility of a message (for
example, to identify the source of selected messages during
troubleshooting). By default, the HP Jetdirect print server uses
LPR as the source facility code, but local user values of local0
through local7 can be used to isolate individual or groups of print
servers.
