Default configuration
for HP Jetdirect 175x external print server/Internet connector for USB
and HP Jetdirect 310x external print server/Internet connector for
USB
Fresh from the factory, before any configuration is changed by a user,
the print server has a default configuration for TCP/IP and for IPX
peer-to-peer printing (called IPX direct mode). When power is applied
in this factory-default state:
● TCP/IP: The print server sends out several BOOTP requests
and one RARP request. If there is no reply, the print server
sends out several DHCP requests. If there is no reply, then the
print server uses the default IP address of 192.0.0.192 to appear
on the network ready for manual configuration by a user (using
the Install Network Printer wizard or any of the other
configuration methods).
●
IPX: The print server tries to determine and use the IPX
network number. It is then ready for further configuration by a
user (using the Install Network Printer wizard or any of the
other configuration methods).
When power is cycled thereafter, the configuration remains as set
previously.
● For IPX, the network number is reassigned automatically.
●
For TCP/IP, one of the following applies:
❍
If a BOOTP reply set the print server’s IP configuration
previously, BOOTP replies continue to be sent when
power is cycled. If no reply is received, factory default
sequence continues, as described above.
❍
If a DHCP reply set the print server’s IP configuration
previously, DHCP requests continue to be sent
indefinitely.
If any configuration changes were made manually by a
user, then this manual configuration continues to be used.
If none of the above have been set, the factory default
sequence is used, as described above.
❍
❍
Resetting the print server to factory defaults
(cold reset)
The factory-default reset procedure (described below) is sometimes
called a “cold reset” or a “cold boot”. When done, the print server
responds exactly like it was fresh from the factory. To reset the print
server configuration to factory defaults, follow these steps:
1. Unplug the power module from the back of the print server.
on the rear of the print
2. While holding down the test button
server, plug the power module back into the print server and
continue to hold down the test button for about five seconds.
Any user-configured settings will be erased.

instructions on printing a configuration page.
Select the printer from the Available Printers list and click OK.
Verifying Network Configuration
To verify your current network configuration, print a Jetdirect
configuration page. If you have not printed a configuration page from
your printer, see the hardware installation guide for your print server
or your printer’s getting started guide for instructions (see Interpreting
the configuration page for more information). If your printer has a
control panel, make sure a READY message appears on the control
panel for at least 1 minute, then print the page. The current
configuration is listed under “AppleTalk” on the configuration page.
Note: If you have multiple printers on your network, you
need to print a configuration page to identify the printer's
name and zone.
Renaming the Printer
The factory supplies a default name for your printer.
Hewlett-Packard highly recommends that you rename your
printer to avoid having multiple printers with similar names on
your network. You can name your printer anything you like—for
example, “Michael’s LaserJet 4000.” The HP LaserJet Utility has the
ability to rename devices located in different zones, as well as the
local zone (no zones need to be present in order to use the HP LaserJet
Utility).
1. Select the Settings icon from the scrolling icon list. The Please
select a setting: dialog appears.
2. Select Printer Name in the list.
3. Click Edit. The Set Printer Name dialog box appears.

name as another printer, an alert dialog box
appears directing you to select another name. To
select another name, repeat steps 4 and 5.
6. If your printer is on an EtherTalk network, continue with the
next section, Selecting a Zone.
7. To exit, select Quit from the File menu.
8. Notify everyone on your network of the new name for your
printer so they can select the printer in the Chooser.
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 devices.
They can be grouped by physical location (for example, Zone A may
contain all the printers on the network in building A). They may also
be grouped logically (for example, all printers used in the finance
department).
1. Select the Settings icon from the scrolling icon list. The Please
Select a Setting: dialog box appears.
2. Select Printer Zone in the list and click Edit. The Select a
Zone dialog box appears.
3. Select your preferred network zone from the Select a Zone: list
and click Set Zone.
4. To exit, select Quit from the File menu.
5. Notify everyone on your network of the new zone for your
printer so they can select the printer in the Chooser.
Selecting Your Printer
1. Select the Chooser from the Apple menu.

screen. Select OK. The Active button turns on.
If your network is linked to other networks, the AppleTalk
Zones list dialog box appears in the Chooser.
4. If applicable, select the zone in the AppleTalk Zones scrolling
list where your printer is located.
5. Select the printer name you want to use from the list of printer
names in the upper-right area of the Chooser.
❍
If your printer is the only name listed in the dialog box,
you must still select it. Your printer remains selected
until you select a different printer with the Chooser.
If the printer's name does not appear in the list, make sure
the following tasks have been performed:
■ The printer is turned on and is online.
■ The print server is connected to the printer and to
the network.
■ The printer cable connections are secure.
A READY message should appear if the printer has a control
panel display. See troubleshooting for more information.
❍
6. Click Setup or Create in the Chooser; then, if prompted, select
the appropriate PostScript Printer Description file (PPD) for the
printer. For more information, see the online documentation
(HP LaserJet Printing Guide).
7. Set Background Printing to ON or OFF.
If background printing is turned OFF when you send a print job
to the printer, status messages appear on your screen and you
have to wait until the messages clear before continuing your
work. If background printing is turned ON, the messages are
redirected to the PrintMonitor and you can continue working
while the printer is printing your job.
8. Exit the Chooser.
To display your user name on the network when you are
printing documents, go into the Control Panel on your MacOS
computer, select Sharing Setup, then type your owner name.

Ports for IP access to the HP Jetdirect print server
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. Depending on your printer and
system, this can be done in the following ways:
Note: When shipped from the factory, the HP Jetdirect
print server has no IP address. If the HP Jetdirect print
server is not configured with a valid IP address within
two minutes after power up, a factory default value of
192.0.0.192 will be automatically assigned. This address
must be reconfigured with a valid address for use on your
TCP/IP network. For more information on TCP/IP
networks, see TCP/IP overview.
●
By using your printer installation software or the HP Jetdirect
print server installation software on supported systems. For
more information see the software solutions summary.
●
By downloading 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 BOOTP/TFTP.
●
By using Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP). This
protocol is supported in HP-UX, Solaris, Red Hat Linux, SuSE
Linux, Windows NT/2000, NetWare, and MacOS systems.
(Refer to your network operating system manuals to verify that
your operating system supports DHCP.) For more information,
see DHCP.
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.
●
By a network-based server using RARP (Reverse Address
Resolution Protocol) answering 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 RARP.

Overview of TCP/IP protocol
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.
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 (see Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP)).
Note: 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.
Network Portion
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.
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.
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. A subnet mask is applied to each
IP address to specify the portion used for subnetworks, and the portion
used to identify the node.
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).
DHCP or BOOTP for auto-configuration of TCP/IP services
These services are used to obtain IP configuration data to print servers
on the network, partially or wholly replacing the manual configuration
using wizards, utilities, and the other real-time tools described on this
page.
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 and TFTP
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. The
downloaded configuration data may also identify a file containing
extended configuration data, to be downloaded by the print server
using TFTP.
The installation sequence for DHCP or BOOTP/TFTP setup
1. Set up the DHCP or BOOTP service. Refer to procedure.
2. Install the hardware; power on the print server. Refer to
procedure.
3. For Windows computers, run the Install Network Printer wizard
on each client to load driver and set up the print path. Return to
the initial screen for this CD, and select the [Install] button for
the Install Network Printer wizard.
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.
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 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 (such as a printer or mopier)
can send syslog messages using UDP.
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.
Selected syslog parameters on the HP Jetdirect print server:
Item
Description
Syslog Server IP
address
IP address of a syslog server to send syslog
messages to. 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.
Typical logfile entries of syslog messages:

Ways to configure an IP address on the print
server
The HP Install Network Printer Wizard for Windows—the installation
wizard supplied and recommended by HP—configures IP for you or
lets you do it. The wizard.
You can automatically configure IP over the network each time the
print server is powered up by using BOOTP (Bootstrap Protocol) or
DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol). Auto-configuration.
You can manually configure IP using various configuration and
management tools, such as the embedded web server. Configuration
tools.
If the print server does not receive its IP configuration within a couple
of minutes, a default IP address is automatically assigned (until
changed by another method): 192.0.0.192. This address is not a valid
IP address for your network but can be used to initially access the
print server using the embedded web server. However, to access it by
the default IP address, you must temporarily either isolate both your
computer and the print server to the same hub, or establish a route to
the print server and change the print server’s configuration to one that
matches your network. Then you can use the embedded web server on
that computer to access the print server by the default IP address—and
then reconfigure IP, or anything else.

Moving the print server to another IP network
When moving an HP Jetdirect print server configured with an
IP address to a new network, ensure that the IP address does not
conflict with addresses on the new network.
1. First, do one of the following:
❍ Change the IP address to one usable on the new network.
❍ Erase the current IP address and configure another
address after you are installed on the new network.
2. Then reset the print server to factory defaults: instructions
3. Finally, do one of the following:
❍ If the print server was configured using BOOTP or
DHCP, edit the appropriate system files with updated
settings. If the current BOOTP server is not reachable,
you may need to locate and configure a different BOOTP
server.
❍ If the IP address and other parameters were manually set,
then manually reconfigure them.

Using BOOTP, TFTP, and DHCP
for HP Jetdirect 175x external print server/Internet connector for USB
and HP Jetdirect 310x external print server/Internet connector for USB
You can have TCP/IP automatically configured on the print server using either BOOTP (Bootstrap Protocol), TFTP
(Trivial File Transfer Protocol), or DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol, RFC 2131/2132) services, on servers
with certain operating systems. With either protocol, network configuration data is downloaded from that server over
the network to the print server, so that the print server automatically obtains its IP address and other IP configuration.
For DHCP, the print server also 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.
For BOOTP, the downloaded configuration data may also identify a file containing extended configuration data. The
HP Jetdirect print server downloads this file using TFTP. This TFTP configuration file may be located on the BOOTP
server or on a separate TFTP server.
Automatically downloading configuration data has the following benefits:
● Ease of HP Jetdirect print server configuration. Complete network configuration can be automatically
downloaded each time the print server is powered on.
● Ease of configuration management. Network configuration parameters for the entire network can be in one
location.
● Enhanced configuration control of the print server. Configuration by other methods is limited to select
parameters.
When the print server is powered on, it broadcasts requests that contains its hardware address. A server daemon
searches servers for configuration data with a matching hardware address, and if successful, sends the corresponding
configuration data to the print server as a reply.
The factory-default state of the HP Jetdirect print server is to request its configuration data using BOOTP requests first,
and if no BOOTP reply is received, then to request its configuration data using DHCP requests.
Note: If the print server and the BOOTP, TFTP, or DHCP server are located on different subnets, IP
configuration may fail unless the routing device supports “BOOTP Relay” (allows the transfer of requests
between subnets).

Changing the BOOTP/DHCP configuration method
Setting up the BOOTP server
For systems using NIS (Network Information Service):
If your server 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.
The procedure to set up the DHCP server depends on the operating system on that system. (It may be a system other
than those using the HP Jetdirect print services.)
●
Windows 2000 or NT servers:
On Windows NT or 2000 server systems, use the Microsoft DHCP utilities to set up print server configuration
through BOOTP.
❍
When you use the Windows NT DHCP procedure (with the finite lease duration and adding a reservation
in step 8), the resulting service will respond to a BOOTP requests as well as to DHCP requests from the
print server.
❍
When you use the Windows 2000 DHCP procedure, the resulting service will respond to BOOTP requests
when you select BOOTP only or Both in step 11d.
These systems may require third-party software for TFTP support.
●
UNIX servers:
A BOOTP server running UNIX must be set up with the BOOTP daemon bootpd, and must be set up with the
/etc/bootptab configuration file. The configuration data in the /etc/bootptab file must be properly
entered. See the contents of the bootptab file below.
TFTP is used to obtain additional configuration data from a configuration file on a TFTP server. This file is
specified in the bootptab file; see the T144 tag. See the contents of the TFTP configuration file, as well as the
contents of the bootptab file, below.
●
NetWare BOOTP servers:
For setup of NetWare BOOTP servers, refer to your NetWare documentation.

TFTP Parameter
Description
syslog-config:
Enables or disablessyslog server operation on the print server:
0 Disables.
1 (default) Enables.
For more information, see syslog.
syslog-svr:
The syslog server’s IP address. It specifies the server to which the print server sends syslog
messages.
syslog-max:
Specifies the maximum number of syslog messages that can be sent by the print server on a
per-minute basis. This setting allows administrators to control the log file size. The default is
10 per minute. If set to zero, the number of syslog messages is not restricted.
Controls the filtering of syslog messages sent to the syslog server. The filter range is 0 to 8,

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 set to 0, the timeout
mechanism is disabled. The default is 270 seconds.
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:
Enables or disables the embedded web server to view or change configuration values:
0 Disables.
1 (default) Enables.
tcp-mss:
Specifies the maximum segment size (MSS) that the print server will 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:
Enables or disables incoming Telnet connections:
0 Disallows them. (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 settings.)
1 Allows them.
SNMP parameters for TFTP
TFTP Parameter
Description
snmp-config:
Enables or disables SNMP operation on the print server:
0 Disables.
1 (default) Enables.
get-community-name:
Specifies a password for SNMP GetRequests sent to the print server. This password is
optional. If a user-specified get community name is set, the print server will respond to
either a user-specified community name or the factory-default. The community name
must be ASCII characters. The maximum length is 255 characters.
set-community-name:
Specifies a password that determines which SNMP SetRequests (control functions) the
print server will respond to. The community name of an incoming SNMP SetRequest
must match the print server’s set community name for the print server to respond.
SetRequests must come from hosts that are configured in the print server’s host access
list. Community names must be ASCII characters. The maximum length is 255
characters.
auth-trap:
Configures the print server to send (on) or not send (off) SNMP authentication traps.
The default is on. Authentication traps indicate that an SNMP request was received,
but the community name check failed.
Enters a host’s IP address into the print server’s SNMP trap destination list. The
command format is:
trap-dest:
trap-dest: ip-address [community name] [port number]
ip-address is the host IP adress.
community name is optional (the default community name will be
used), except in two cases:
● when specifying the port number. If you do not specify a
community name, the port number will become the community
name.
● when a trap-community-name entry precedes any
trap-dest entry. If you do not specify a community name here,
that trap community name will be assigned to this entry.
port number is optional (the default SNMP port number 162 will be
used).
Setting trap-dest: 0 deletes the trap destination list. If the list is empty, the
print server does not send SNMP traps. The list may contain up to five entries. The
default SNMP trap destination list is empty. To receive SNMP traps, the systems listed
on the SNMP trap destination list must have a trap daemon to listen to those traps.
Community name (password) included with SNMP traps that are sent by the print
trap-community-name: server to a host computer. Community names must be ASCII characters. The
maximum length is 255 characters.

Configuring the print server
for BOOTP configuration
The factory-default state of the HP Jetdirect print server allows it to use BOOTP services automatically, so no further
action is necessary.
How the default configuration works
Changing the BOOTP/DHCP configuration method
Setting up the DHCP server
The procedure to set up the DHCP server depends on the operating system on that system. (It may be a system other
than those using the HP Jetdirect print services.)
● UNIX
●
Windows NT 4.0
●
Windows 2000
UNIX servers:
For instructions 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 the print server IP addresses remain static until
dynamic name services are provided.
Windows NT 4.0 servers:
You will set up a pool--scope-- of IP addresses that the server can assign or lease to a requester.
Note: To avoid problems resulting from IP addresses that change, HP recommends that all print servers be
assigned IP addresses with infinite leases or reserved IP addresses.
NT Procedure:
Note: In addition to the general steps provided here, see also the instructions supplied with your DHCP
software.
1. On the Windows NT server, open the Program Manager window and double-click the Network Administrator
icon.
2. Double-click the DHCP Manager icon to open this window.
3. Select Server and select Server Add.
4. Type the server IP address, then click [OK] to return to the DHCP Manager window.
5. In the list of DHCP servers, click on the server you have just added, then select Scope and select Create.
6. Select Set up the IP Address Pool. In the IP Address Pool section, set up the IP address range by entering the
beginning IP address in the Start Address box and entering the ending IP address in the End Address box. Also
enter 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 print servers 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 (as described above)
causes all clients in that scope to have infinite leases.
If you want clients on your network to have finite leases, you can instead set the duration to a finite time, but you
should configure all print servers as reserved clients for the scope.
8. If you have set Lease Duration to Unlimited in the previous step, then skip now to the next step 9.
If you have set Lease Duration to a finite time, then continue with this step:
Select Scope and select Add Reservations to set up your print servers as reserved clients. For each print server,
perform the following steps in the Add Reserved Clients window to set up a reservation for that print server:
a. Type the selected IP address.
b. Obtain the hardware (MAC) address from the configuration page, and type this address in the
Unique Identifier box.
c. Input a client name.
d. Select Add to add the reserved client. To delete a reservation, in the DHCP Manager window, select Scope
and select Active Leases. In the Active Leases window, click on the reservation you want to delete and
select [Delete].
9. Select Close to return to the DHCP Manager window.
10. If you do not plan to use WINS (Windows Internet Naming Service), then skip now to the next step 11.
If you plan to use WINS (Windows Internet Naming Service), then continue with this step:
a. From the DHCP Manager window, select DHCP Options and select one of the following:
Scope: if you want name services only for the selected scope.
Global: if you want name services for all scopes.
b. Add the server to the Active Options list. In the DHCP Options window, select
WINS/NBNS Servers (044) from the Unused Options list. Select [Add]; then select [OK].
A warning may appear requesting that you set the node type. You will do this in step 10d below.
c. Now provide the IP address of the WINS server as follows:
i. Select Value, then Edit Array.
ii. From the IP Address Array Editor, select Remove to delete any undesired addresses previously set.
Then type in the IP address of the WINS server and select [Add].
iii. Once the address appears in the list of IP addresses, select [OK]. This returns you to the
DHCP Options window. If the address you have just added appears in the list of IP addresses (near
the bottom of the window) continue to step 10d below. Otherwise, retry step 10c.
d. In the DHCP Options window, select WINS/NBT Node Type (046) from the Unused Options list. Select
[Add] to add the node type to the Active Options list. In the Byte box, input 0x4 to indicate a mixed node,
and select [OK].
11. Click [Close] to exit to the Program Manager.
Windows 2000 servers:
You will set up a pool--scope-- of IP addresses that the server can assign or lease to a requester.
Note: To avoid problems resulting from IP addresses that change, HP recommends that all print servers be
assigned IP addresses with infinite leases or reserved IP addresses.
2000 Procedure:
Note: In addition to the general steps provided here, see also the instructions supplied with your DHCP
software.
1. Run the Windows 2000 DHCP manager utility: Click Start, Settings, Control Panel. Open the
Administrative Tools folder and run the DHCP utility.
2. In the DHCP window, locate and select your Windows 2000 server in the DHCP tree.
If your server is not listed in the tree, select DHCP and click the Action menu to add the server.
3. After selecting your server in the DHCP tree, click the Action menu and select New Scope. This runs the
Add New Scope wizard.
4. In the Add New Scope wizard, click [Next].
5. Enter a name and description for this scope, then click [Next].
6. Enter the range of IP addresses for this scope (beginning IP address and ending IP address). Also, enter the
subnet mask. Then click [Next].
Note:If subnetting is used, the subnet mask defines which portion of an IP address specifies the subnet and which
portion specifies the client device. (See overview of IP addresses.)
7. If applicable, enter the range of IP addresses within the scope to be excluded by the server. Then click [Next].
8. Set the IP address lease duration for your DHCP clients. Then click [Next].
HP recommends that all print servers be assigned reserved IP addresses. You can do this after you set up the
scope, as step 11 below.
9. HP recommends that you select [No] to configure DHCP options for this scope later, and then click [Next].
If you want to configure DHCP options now:
a. Select [Yes] and click [Next].
b. If desired, specify the IP address of the router (or default gateway) to be used by clients. Then click
[Next].
c. If desired, specify the Domain Name and DNS (Domain Name System) servers for clients. Click [Next].
d. If desired, specify WINS server names and IP addresses. Click [Next].
e. Select [Yes] to activate the DHCP options now, and click [Next].
10. You have successfully set up the DHCP scope on this server. Click [Finish] to close the wizard.
11. To configure your print server with a reserved IP address within the DHCP scope:
a. In the DHCP tree, open the folder for your scope and select Reservations.
b. Click the Action menu and select New Reservation.
c. Enter the appropriate information in each field, including the reserved IP address for your print server.
(Note: the hardware {MAC} address for your print server is available on the Jetdirect configuration page.)
d. Under “Supported types”, select DHCP only, then click [Add]. This results in a DHCP configuration.
Note: Selecting Both or BOOTP only results in a BOOTP configuration due to the sequence in which
HP Jetdirect print servers initiate configuration protocol requests.
e. Specify another reserved client, or click [Close]. The reserved clients added will be displayed in the
Reservations folder for this scope.
12. Close the DHCP manager utility.
Configuring the print server for DHCP configuration
Once a DHCP server is set up (according to the previous section), the factory-default state of the print server requires
no further action for print server configuration.
How the default configuration works
Changing the BOOTP/DHCP configuration method
Other configuration tools that include IP configuration, such as the embedded web server or Telnet, allow you to disable
BOOTP and/or DHCP auto-configuration. In each of these tools, three possible settings for the configuration method
are provided; each of the settings has the effect of disabling others, as follows:
●
BOOTP
The print server automatically releases any names and IP addresses associated with the DHCP server and
re-initializes the TCP/IP protocol for the print server (unless a BOOTP configuration is currently in effect). At
this point, TCP/IP is unconfigured, and the print server begins to send —even before power is cycled—BOOTP
requests to acquire new IP configuration information. If no BOOTP reply is received, the IP address remains at
the factory default 192.0.0.192. DHCP is disabled.
After power to the print server is cycled, only BOOTP requests are sent and only BOOTP replies are processed.
Any configuration of IP parameters done manually is ignored.
●
DHCP
The print server automatically releases any names and IP addresses associated with the BOOTP server and
re-initializes the TCP/IP protocol for the print server (unless a BOOTP configuration is currently in effect). At
this point, TCP/IP is unconfigured, and the print server begins to send—even before power is cycled— DHCP
requests to acquire new IP configuration information. If no DHCP reply is received, the IP address remains at the
factory default 192.0.0.192. BOOTP is disabled.
After power to the print server is cycled, only DHCP requests are sent and only DHCP replies are processed. Any
configuration of IP parameters done manually is ignored.
●
Manual
BOOTP and DHCP are disabled.
You should proceed to manually set all of the IP configuration parameters, including IP address, subnet mask,
default gateway, and idle timeout. You can use the settings available in the same tool you are using.
Caution:
If the print server is switched from using an address allocated by a DHCP server to using a manually assigned
address, that manually assigned address should be outside any DHCP range used for other devices on the
network. An alternative is to tell the DHCP server that the print server's address is fixed so that it will never be
allocated to another client.
Returning to factory defaults
You can return the print server to its factory-default state (also called “cold reset”) by using the factory-default reset
procedure.

Using RARP
for HP Jetdirect 175x external print server/Internet connector for USB
and HP Jetdirect 310x external print server/Internet connector for
USB
This subsection 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 print server and to
supply the IP address to the print server.
1. Switch off the print server.
2. Log onto your UNIX or Linux system as a superuser.
3. Make sure the RARP daemon is running on your system by
entering the following command at the system prompt:
ps -ef | grep rarpd (for Unix)
ps ax | grep rarpd (for 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 print server. For example:
192.168.45.39 laserjet1
7. Edit the /etc/ethers file (/etc/rarpd.conf file in
HP-UX 10.20) to add the LAN hardware address (MAC or
station address), as shown on the configuration page, and the
node name for the 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. Switch on the print server.
9. To verify that the print server is configured with the correct IP
address, use the ping utility. At the system prompt, enter:
ping <IP address>
where <IP address> is the assigned address
from RARP. The default IP address is 192.0.0.192.
10. If ping does not respond, see the Troubleshooting section.

Using the arp and ping commands
for HP Jetdirect 175x external print server/Internet connector for USB
and HP Jetdirect 310x external print server/Internet connector for
USB
You can configure a 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 print server.
Using the arp and ping commands with HP Jetdirect print servers
requires the following:
● Windows NT/2000 or UNIX system configured for TCP/IP
operation.
● HP Jetdirect firmware version x.08.03 or later.
● LAN hardware address (MAC or station address) of the server
(specified on its configuration page, or on a label attached to
the back).
● Note that on some systems, superuser rights may be required for
the arp command.
After an IP address is assigned via arp and ping commands, use
other tools (such as Telnet, embedded web server, or HP Web
Jetadmin software) to configure other IP parameters.
Procedure
Enter the following commands at the system prompt:
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.
<LAN hardware address> may
require a specific format for your system.
For example:
●
●
In Windows NT 4.0 or Windows
2000:
arp -s 192.168.45.39
00-01-E6-a2-31-98
ping 192.168.45.39
In 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 cold
reset).
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.

Using Telnet
for HP Jetdirect 175x external print server/Internet connector for USB
and HP Jetdirect 310x external print server/Internet connector for USB
How to configure the print server using Telnet.
Setting up an IP route
To use Telnet commands with the print server, a route must be available from your workstation to the print server. This
means that there must be a match between the network identification of your system to that of the print server. (For
example, if the print server is configured with a default IP address, a route may not exist.)
On Windows 95, 98, NT 4.0, 2000, Me, and XP systems, you can use the following route command at a DOS prompt to
add a route to the print server:
route add <print server IP address> <system IP address>
where:
<print server IP address> is the IP address configured on the print server
<system IP address> is the IP address of the computer’s network card that is attached to
the same physical LAN as the print server
example:
route add 192.168.45.39 192.170.1.2
Note:
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.
Typical Telnet session
Procedure
To set configuration parameters, you must set up a Telnet connection from your system to the HP Jetdirect print server.
1. Type the following at the DOS prompt:
telnet <IP address>
where:
<IP address> may be the print server’s assigned address from BOOTP, RARP,
DHCP, from the printer control panel, or the default IP address. The default IP address is
192.0.0.192. The IP address is listed on the Jetdirect configuration page.
2. A connection to the 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 administrative password has been
set, you will be prompted for a user name and this password before you can enter and save Telnet commands.
4. By default, a command line interface is provided. For a list of supported commands and parameters, see the list of
Telnet commands and parameters at the end of this section. To configure parameters using the menu interface
instead, enter Menu. For more information, see user interface options below.
User interface options
The print server provides two interface options to enter Telnet commands, command line interface, which is the default,
and menu.
Command line interface (default) procedure
Use the following procedure for Telnet’s command line interface to change parameters:
1. At the Telnet prompt “>” enter:
<parameter>: <value>
where:
<parameter> is the string for the configuration parameter you are defining. Command
strings are found in the first column of the Telnet commands and parameters list at the end
of this section.
<value> is the setting you are assigning to that parameter. Allowed values are
described in the second column of the Telnet commands and parameters list at the end of
this section.
At any time during a Telnet session, you can enter one of the following:
? to view available configuration parameters, the correct command format, and a list of commands.
advanced
?
to list additional “advanced” commands.
/ to display the current configuration.
Caution: Parameter changes are not saved until step 4 below.
2. Repeat the previous step to set any additional configuration parameters.
3. When you have finished entering the configuration parameters, at the Telnet prompt enter one of the following
commands, which depend on your system.
save
exit
quit
4. When prompted whether to save settings that you have changed, enter y for “yes”, or n for “no”.
Menu interface procedure
Use the following procedure for Telnet’s menu interface to change parameters. The menu interface eliminates the need to
memorize commands, and provides structured menu lists for easy access to configuration parameters.
1. At the Telnet prompt “>” enter:
menu
The menu interface example below illustrates the menu interface, using the TCP/IP menus as an example.
2. From the Main Menu, select and enter a menu number. If there are submenus, select and enter a submenu number.
3. If you want to change a parameter setting, enter y (for “yes”) when prompted.
Changes to parameters are made by editing the setting through the use of the [Backspace] key. If an
unrecognized value is entered, the correct entry options will be displayed. The values allowed for each parameter are
described in the second column of the Telnet commands and parameters list at the end of this section.
Caution: Parameter changes are not saved until step 6 below.
4. Repeat the previous step to set any additional configuration parameters.
5. When you have finished entering the configuration parameters, at the Telnet prompt enter one of the following
commands, which depend on your system.
save
exit
quit
6. When prompted whether to save settings that you have changed, enter y for “yes”, or n for “no”.
Illustration of using the menu interface:
Using Telnet to Erase the Existing IP Address
This procedure resets all TCP/IP parameters, but only affects the TCP/IP subsystem. After this has been done the print
server should be power cycled. Parameters for other subsystems such as IPX/SPX (Novell NetWare) or AppleTalk are not
affected.
(To reset all print server configuration parameters to factory default values, use the hardware cold reset
procedure.)
1. Enter the Telnet command:
cold-reset
2. Exit Telnet using one of the following commands, depending on your system.
save
exit
quit
3. When prompted whether to save settings that you have changed, enter y.
Telnet Commands and Parameters
List of the available Telnet commands and parameters.
Note:
If a parameter is supplied dynamically (for example, from a BOOTP, TFTP, or DHCP server), its value
cannot be changed using Telnet without first setting manual configuration, using the ip-configcommand).
Whenever you are manually changing an IP address, you should also reconfigure the subnet mask and default
gateway at the same time.

TCP/IP main parameters for Telnet
Telnet Parameter
host-name
Description and Values
Specifies the node name (up to 32 alphanumeric characters) that will appear on the Jetdirect
configuration page. Default is NPIxxxxxx, where xxxxxx is the last six digits of the print
server’s hardware address (MAC or LAN address).
ip-config
Selects the method for the print server to receive its IP configuration parameters: bootp
(default), dhcp, or manual.
bootp or dhcp The IP parameters will be automatically configured by a BOOTP or DHCP
server each time the print server is powered on.
manual The print server will wait for the basic IP parameters to be entered using manual
tools, such as this Telnet or other available tools. The status will be “user specified”.
See more info, including a caution.
IP address for the print server, in dotted decimal notation. (See TCP/IP.) An example:
ip-config manual Specifies manual configuration.
ip 192.168.45.39 Manually sets the IP address 192.168.45.39 on the print server.
ip
ip 0.0.0.0 Clears the IP address.
Note: If you exit and save a new IP address, it must be specified for the next Telnet
connection.
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. (See TCP/IP.)
ip 0.0.0.0 Disables the subnet mask.
Note: If the print server is configured by DHCP and you manually change the subnet mask or
the default gateway address, you should manually change the IP address also. This will release
the DHCP-assigned address back to the DHCP IP address pool.
default-gw
Identifies the IP address of a router or computer that is used to connect to other networks or
subnetworks. (See TCP/IP.)
Note: If the print server is configured by DHCP and you manually change the subnet mask or
the default gateway address, you should manually change the IP address also. This will release
the DHCP-assigned address back to the DHCP IP address pool.

messages.
syslog-max
Specifies the maximum number of syslog messages that can be sent by the print server on a
per-minute basis. This setting allows administrators to control the log file size. The default is
10 per minute. If set to zero, the number of syslog messages is not restricted.
syslog-priority
Controls the filtering of syslog messages sent to the syslog server. The filter range is 0 to 8,
with 0 being the most specific and 8 the most general. Only messages that are lower than the
filter level specified (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 print server uses LPR as the source
facility code, but local user values of local0 through local7 can be used to isolate

is 1–15. When set to -1, multicast capability is disabled.
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 set to 0, the timeout mechanism is
disabled. The default is 270 seconds.
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.
cold-reset
Sets TCP/IP factory defaults. After a cold reset, power cycle the print server. Parameters for
other subsystems, such as IPX/SPX or AppleTalk, are not affected.
ews-config
Enables or disables the print server’s embedded web server to view or change configuration
values:
0 Disables.
1 (default) Enables.
tcp-mss
Specifies the maximum segment size (MSS) that the print server will 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.

optional. If a user-specified get community name is set, the print server will respond to
get-community-name
either a user-specified community name or the factory-default. The community name must
be ASCII characters. The maximum length is 255 characters.
Specifies a password that determines which SNMP SetRequests (control functions) the
print server will respond to. The community name of an incoming SNMP SetRequest must
set-community-name match the print server’s set community name for the print server to respond. SetRequests
must come from hosts that are configured in the print server’s host access list. Community
names must be ASCII characters. The maximum length is 255 characters.
auth-trap
trap-dest
Configures the print server to send (on) or not send (off) SNMP authentication traps. The
default is on. Authentication traps indicate that an SNMP request was received, but the
community name check failed.
Enters a host’s IP address into the print server’s SNMP trap destination list. The command
format is:
trap-dest ip-address [community name] [port number]
ip-address is the host IP adress.
community name is optional (the default community name will be used),
except in two cases:
● when specifying the port number. If you do not specify a community
name, the port number will become the community name.
● when a trap-community-name entry precedes any trap-dest
entry. If you do not specify a community name here, that trap
community name will be assigned to this entry.
port number is optional (the default SNMP port number 162 will be
used).
Setting trap-dest 0 deletes the trap destination list. If the list is empty, the print
server does not send SNMP traps. The list may contain up to five entries. The default
SNMP trap destination list is empty. To receive SNMP traps, the systems listed on the
SNMP trap destination list must have a trap daemon to listen to those traps.

Using the embedded web server
for HP Jetdirect 175x external print server/Internet connector for USB
and HP Jetdirect 310x external print server/Internet connector for USB
HP Jetdirect print servers contain an embedded web server that can be accessed from
a compatible web browser over an intranet. You can use any computer on the
network to access the configuration and management pages for the print server and
the attached network device—the printer or multifunction (MFP or All-in-One)
device. The print server's embedded web server allows you to monitor server and
device status, view and change print server configuration, and use basic scanning
over the network if you have a multifunction (MFP or All-in-One) device.

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.
The print server may already be configured for IP as part of the software
installation; check for its IP address on the configuration page. If it is
not configured, see ways to configure an IP address: overview of IP and
IP addressing.
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 address.
For example: http://192.168.45.39
The Home page will be displayed, as illustrated below.
Which Home page is initially displayed by the browser will depend on
the printer:
●
If the printer (called the “device”) contains a supportable
embedded web server, the printer’s Home page will be displayed.
●
If the printer does not contain a supportable embedded web
server, the Home page of the HP Jetdirect print server is
displayed .

A Caution! Configuration tools.
Host Name
Specifies a readable IP name (the SNMP SysName object) for the
network device. The name may contain up to 32 characters
including numbers, upper- and lower-case letters, and hyphen and
underscore.
IP Address
Use this field to manually assign the Internet Protocol address on
the 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. (See overview
on IP addressing.)
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
Subnet Mask IP address, determines which bits specify the network and subnet,
and which bits uniquely specify the node. (See overview on IP
addressing.)
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 print server resides in (for example, “support.hp.com”). It
does not include the host name; it is not the Fully Qualified
Domain Name (such as “printer1.support.hp.com”).
Specifies the IP address of the primary Windows Internet Naming
Primary
Service (WINS) server. The WINS server provides IP address and
WINS Server
name resolution services for network computers and devices.
Specifies the IP address to be used for WINS if the primary WINS
Secondary
WINS Server Server is unavailable.
Syslog
Server
Specifies the IP address of a host computer that is configured to
receive syslog messages from the print server. If a syslog server is
not specified, syslog messages are disabled. See the syslog
description. See also the Syslog Facility parameter in the Other
Settings menu.
Syslog
Maximum
Messages
Specifies the maximum number of syslog messages that can be sent
by the print server on a per-minute basis. This setting allows
administrators to control the log file size. The default is 10 per
minute. If set to zero, no maximum number is defined.
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.
Specifies the number of seconds that an idle print connection is
allowed to remain open. Up to 3600 seconds can be set. 270 is the
Idle Timeout 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 (used by the HP
Jetdirect Install Network Printer Wizard). 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.
System
Contact
Identifies a person who is assigned to administer or service this
device. This field may include a phone number or similar
information. When configured, this parameter will be displayed on

enter the desired value and click [Apply].
LPD Queues
The LPD Queues parameters govern the operation of printing under the LPD (line
printer daemon) application. (For additional information on LPD printing and use of
the LPD queues, refer to the section on LPD Printing.) Ten different named print
queues are available under LPD. Four of these queues are configured automatically
and their parameters can not be changed. The remaining six queues can be defined by
the user.
The six user-definable 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 Queues
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
Name of the string to be added before the print data (“prepended”).
Type in a string name chosen from the table defined at the bottom of
the window.
Append
String
Name
Name of the string to be added after the print data (“appended”). Type
in a string name chosen from the table defined at the bottom of the
window.
Processing instruction for the queue:
●
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.)
●
Queue
Type
TEXT: Carriage return added. The line printer daemon treats
data in the 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 auto-sensing
to determine whether the print data should be sent as raw or
text.
●
BINPS: Binary PostScript. This instructs the PostScript driver
to generate the print data using all possible byte values, from 0
to 255. (Most printers using LPR printing use the standard
ASCII range, from 0 to 127.)
Default
Queue
Name
Name of the queue to be used if the queue specified for a print job is
unknown.
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
next parameter defines the content of the string. Prepend and append
string names (specified in the table at the top of the 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.
The content of the string. The previous parameter names the string;
this parameter defines its content. When a string name is specified for
a prepend or append string (in the table at the top of the window), the
line printer daemon sends the value of that string to the printer before
or after the print data (as appropriate).
Value
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), you would type in \1B. If your string includes the backslash
character itself, you can 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 the section on LPD Printing for details. LPD printing must be
currently set to be enabled; refer to the LPD Printing parameter under the
Miscellaneous tab within Other Settings
Example:
For example, if you had a network printer controlled by a Windows NT server 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 (<ESC><e>)
at the beginning of each job. You would set this up as follows:
First, set up the print queue:
1. Name a string: Type “reset_string” into the String Name field in row 1.
2. Define the string’s value: Type “\1BE” (<ESC><e>) into the Value field in
row 1. (Alternatively, you could type “\1B\45”.)
3. Name the queue: Type “clear_printer” into the Queue Name field in
row 5.
4. Set up the prepend string: Type “reset_string” into the Prepend String
field in row 5.
5. Leave the Append String field in row 5 blank.
6. Set the queue type: Using the pull-down menue, 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 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.

Troubleshooting web scanning
Problems using scan
●
Unable to scan using PDF image format
Problem: After I click the Scan button, I get an error message that the scan is
aborted. I am using Internet Explorer.
●
Resolution: This is a known issue with plug-ins (not external applications)
and version 5.0 of Microsoft Internet Explorer. Configure your Internet
Explorer browser to not use that specific plug-in for TIFF files.
Unable to scan using TIFF image format
Problem: After I click the Scan button, the scanner begins to scan but never
completes. I am using Internet Explorer.
Resolution: This is a known issue with various versions of Microsoft Internet
Explorer and Windows 95, 98, and NT 4.0. A recommended work-around is to
download the latest version of Internet Explorer, 5.0 or higher, and the latest
version of Adobe Acrobat Reader, 4.0 or higher.
●
Unable to use “Save” or “Save As” command in Adobe Acrobat Reader
Problem: After I click the Scan button, Adobe Acrobat Reader is launched. I
am unable to select “Save” or “Save As”.
Resolution: This is a known issue with various versions of Microsoft Internet
Explorer and Windows 95, 98, and NT 4.0. A recommended work-around is to
download the latest version of Adobe Acrobat Reader, 4.0 or higher.
●
Not prompted to “Save File As” or “Open File”
Problem: After I click the Scan button, I am not prompted to “Save File As”
or “Open File”. Instead, an application or plug-in is loaded and the scanned
image is displayed.
Resolution: There are many different plug-in applications available for each
of the image format choices. If you do not want the plug-in to automatically
load your scanned image, you can uninstall the plug-in associated with the
image format you are using. Or, you can use the “Save” or “Save As”
command located within the plug-in application.
●
Scanned image does not display on the screen
Problem: After I click the Scan button, a plug-in is launched and tries to open
either my TIFF or PDF image. Instead of the image displaying on the screen, I
get a graphical icon (for example, a page with the left corner folded or a small
image with a question mark in the center) or even a message stating that the
browser could not load the image.
Resolution: Since a variety of plug-in applications exist, each plug-in exhibits
a different behavior. You can uninstall the plug-in associated with the image
format you are using. Or, you can change the association of the TIFF or PDF
file type to a different application.
Problems using scan preview
●
Preview option is missing with a sheet feed scanner or with a multi-page

Resolution: Sheet-feed MFPs (and All-in-Ones) do not support scan previews.
Flatbed scanners do not support scan previews when using a multi-page
document feeder (ADF) instead of the glass flatbed. In these cases, to preview
the image before saving it, use the “Open it” option or allow the plug-in to
open the scanned image. Once the scanned image is displayed, use the “Save”
or “Save As” option in the application.
●
Unable to “rubber band” or scan a small area from the preview
Problem: I clicked the Preview button and the image appeared in the preview
window. I tried to select a small region, but this did not work.
Resolution: Rubber banding or selecting a portion of a document are not
supported. However, it is possible to select a predefined document size that is
smaller than the image size; the result will be a portion of the image.
Problems with availability of scan and e-mail
●
Scan menu item is missing from the Home page.
Problem: On the Home page of my embedded web server the Scan item is
missing from the left column.
Resolution 1: Only HP multifunction (MFP or All-in-One) devices can be
used for scanning; check the type of printer attached to the print server.
Resolution 2: Web Scan has been disabled on the print server that networks
the multifunction printer. Someone with configuration access to the print
server should check the configuration of the Enable Web Scan parameter.
●
Email To… button is missing from the Scan page.
Problem: I can reach the Scan page but no Email To… button appears next to
Scan.
Resolution: Scanning to email has been disabled on the print server that
networks the multifunction printer. Someone with configuration access to the
print server should check the configuration of settings of the Enable Web
Scan-to-email parameter. Both Enable Web Scan and Scan-to-email must
be set for the Email To… button to appear.
●
The Email To… button is available but I get an error message.
Problem 1: The Email To… button is available but the operation fails and an
error message says “To use this feature, Email (SMTP Server) must be
specified”. This means that no outgoing SMTP mail server was detected as
configured for the print server.
Resolution 1: Someone with configuration access to the print server should
configure the e-mail server, as follows: Click on the Networking tab at the top
of the embedded web server page. In the left column of the page (in the
Configuration list), select Other Settings. For the parameter Email (SMTP)
Server (for outgoing mail), specify the e-mail server to be used when any
user scans to email through this networked scanner. Click [Apply].

Disabling Web Scan and its alternative
You can disable and enable the availability of the web scanning facility in the
embedded web server. You can also disable and enable the alternative to this basic
scanning functionality.
The alternative: The print server may support (depending on installation methods)
the full-function scanning facility residing on individual computers—acquired by
installing the client software from the CD for the HP multifunction (MFP or
All-in-One) device. The client user can use that software normally on printers
networked through an HP Jetdirect print server, and it probably has more features
than the simple scanning available available on the embedded web server through the
client user's browser.
Enabling/disabling: Both alternatives—the print server's support of the full-function
client scanning software and the print server's embedded web server Web Scan
facility—are enabled by default and therefore available to the network clients. Either
or both can be disabled (and then enabled again) in the print server's configuration.
Methods for making these configuration changes:
●
Telnet
●
The embedded web server’s Networking configuration facility:
Click on the Networking tab at the top of the web page. In the left column of
the page (in the Configuration list, select Other Settings. To assign a
parameter setting, enter the desired value and click [Apply]. Networking
configuration reference. The parameters are the following:
❍
Enable Web Scan
Enable Scan-to-email
are the parameters used to disable and enable Web Scan, with or without
the e-mail capability, in the print server's embedded web server. Both
are enabled by default. Enable Web Scan must be enabled if Enable
Scan-to-email is enabled.
❍
Enable MFP and AIO software support
is the parameter used to disable and enable the print server's support of
the full-function client scanning software. It is enabled by default.

Security
for HP Jetdirect 175x external print server/Internet connector for USB
and HP Jetdirect 310x external print server/Internet connector for
USB
The print server provides security features that can help to minimize
unauthorized access to network configuration parameters.
Note:
Full security in printing environments consists of system
authentication (for both servers and clients), data
integrity and privacy, and printer access control. High
levels of network printing security may require a
coordinated implementation of network system
applications, encryption, and infrastructure controls. The
prevention of unauthorized access to HP Jetdirect print
server configuration parameters cannot be guaranteed.
Security features
●
IP administrative password
❍
Used by Telnet and the embedded web server to control
access to print server configuration parameters.
❍
Up to 16 case-sensitive, alphanumeric characters may be
used.
❍
Configured on the print server using the embedded web
server (Security, Admin Password menu item), TFTP,
Telnet, or optionally by changing the SNMP Set
Community Name or the HP Web Jetadmin password.
Optionally, you can synchronize (set) the
HP Web Jetadmin and the SNMP
Set Community Name to the same password
at the same time. This means that when
HP Web Jetadmin sends an SNMP Set
command to the print server, the command
must include the IP administrative password
as the community name for the print server
to respond. If you do select such
synchronization, changing either of those
passwords in that location will also change
this IP administrative password.
●
●
●
IP host access list
❍
Specifies up to 10 host systems, or networks of host
systems, that are allowed access to the print server and
the attached networked printing device.
❍
Access is generally limited to host systems specified in
the list. However, if the list is empty, then all hosts are
allowed access. Also, host systems that use HTTP (via
the embedded web server or IPP) are not checked against
entries in the access list and are allowed access.
❍
Configured on the print server using the embedded web
server (Security, Access Control menu item), TFTP,
Telnet, SNMP, or management software.
SNMP v1/v2c — Set Community Name
❍
Acts as a password on the print server to allow incoming
SNMP Set commands (from management software, for
example) to write (set) configuration parameters on the
print server.

Setting up LPD (LPR) Printing
for HP Jetdirect 175x external print server/Internet connector for USB
and HP Jetdirect 310x external print server/Internet connector for
USB
The HP Jetdirect print server contains an LPD (Line Printer Daemon)
server module to support LPD printing. Other terms for these services
are “LPR (Line Printer Request)”, from the perspective of the printing
clients, “BSD printing”, and “Print Services for UNIX”. These refer to
the protocol and programs associated with line-printer spooling
services that may be installed on various TCP/IP systems. These
systems include Windows NT 4.0, Windows 2000, and Mac OS.
The LPD programs include the following:
Program
Name
Purpose of Program
lpr
Line Printer Request: Queues jobs for printing
lpq
Line Printer Queues: Displays print queues
lprm
Line Printer Remove: Removes jobs from print
queues
lpc
Line Printer Control: Controls print queues
lpd
Line Printer Daemon: 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.
Prerequisites:
● An operating system that supports LPD printing—any host
implementation of LPD that complies with the RFC 1179
document
● “Administrator” access to your system
● Printer properly connected to the network through the print
server —done in step 1 of the initial setup below
●
●
IP parameters configured on the print server —done in step 2 of
the initial setup below
Read the hardware address (also called MAC, LAN, or station
address) of the print server, either from a label on the print
server device or from the configuration page you print as the
last step in the hardware installation procedure—done in step 1
of the initial setup below
Setup sequence:
1. Install hardware; power on the print server. Refer to procedure.
2. Configure TCP/IP parameters on the print server. Refer to
summary of methods.
3. Find the driver for your printer and install it.
4. Create a TCP/IP port and connect it to the driver. You can use
Microsoft LPR port, for example.
5. Do LPD setup procedure for the Windows or Macintosh client:
❍ LPD on Windows NT or 2000 systems
❍
LPD on Mac OS systems
Setting up LPD
on Windows NT/2000 systems
Note: Make sure you have done the LPD prerequisites.
LPD (Line Printer Daemon) setup involves setting up the print
queues, creating a port for printing, and verifying the setup on the
system. The procedure depends on the operating system:
● Windows NT 4.0 LPD setup procedure
●
Windows 2000 LPD setup procedure
Reference on queues
In the procedure below you will set up a print queue for each printer
or printer personality (PCL or PostScript) used on each system. Also,
different queues are required for formatted and unformatted files. You
can use the queue names listed in the following table.
raw
no processing
text
carriage return added
auto
automatic
binps
binary Postscript
defined by user; optionally including
<user-defined> commend strings before and after the print
data
Meaning of the queue names:
The line printer daemon treats data in an text queue as unformatted
or ASCII text, 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 an raw queue as formatted files
in PCL, PostScript, or HP-GL/2 languages and sends the data without
change to the printer.
Data in an auto queue will be automatically processed as text or
raw, as appropriate.
For the binps queue, the line printer daemon requests the PostScript
printer driver to output print data in 8-bit binary form (byte values in
the range of 0 to 255, instead of the standard ASCII values in the
range of 0 to 127).
For user-defined queue names, the line printer daemon adds
user-defined strings before and/or after the print data. (Click here for
details on setting up user-defined print queues using the print server’s
embedded Web server.).
If the queue name is not one of the above, the HP Jetdirect print server
assumes it to be raw1.
The procedure depends on whether the system runs
Windows NT 4.0 or Windows 2000.
Windows NT 4.0 LPD setup procedure

C. Verifying the configuration
From within Windows NT, print a file from any application. If the file
prints correctly, the configuration was successful. If the print job is
not successful, try printing directly from DOS using the following
syntax:
lpr -S<ipaddress> -P<queuename>
filename
where:
<ipaddress> is the IP address of the print server,
<queuename> is the name raw or text,
<filename> is the file you wish to print.
If the file prints correctly, the configuration was successful. If the file
does not print, or prints incorrectly, see Troubleshooting.

FTP Printing
for HP Jetdirect 310x external print server/Internet connector for USB
Note: Not applicable to 175x
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 or the embedded web server.
Requirements
FTP printing described here requires the following:
● HP 310x print server
● TCP/IP client systems with FTP that complies with RFC 959.
For the most recent list of tested systems: http://www.hp.com/support/net_printing
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, the
embedded web server (see TCP/IP Configuration), or management software.
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.
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.
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 internal print
server cards provide a single port (Port 1). HP Jetdirect external print servers with
multiple ports will display all available ports, with Port1 the default port. To change
ports, use the FTP cd (change directory) command. For a typical FTP printing session,
see Example of an FTP Session.
Ending the FTP Session
To end an FTP session, type quit or bye.
Note: Prior to ending an FTP session, a [Ctrl-C] command is recommended
to ensure the data connection is closed

USB light blinking green
for HP Jetdirect 175x external print server/Internet connector for USB
and HP Jetdirect 310x external print server/Internet connector for

If the USB
light is blinking green, it indicates that the print server
has detected a good connection to a valid USB device, but the print
server does not support the device. For example, this would happen if
you connected a USB digital camera to the print server.
This is not a fault, but rather an incompatibility between the print
server and the connected device. The print server supports only USB
printers (including USB multifunction printers and All-in-One
devices). It does not support non-printer USB devices, nor does it
support USB cable extenders, USB-to-parallel converters, or USB
hubs.
Please check that your print server is connected to a USB printer. If
your printer is not a USB printer, you will need to substitute a USB
printer or use a different model of HP Jetdirect print server (for
instance, one suitable for use with parallel printers).

If the configuration page does not print, try these steps.
If the configuration page prints but is unreadable, skip to step 4.
1. Make sure your printer is connected to your print server by
a USB A-to-B cable. (This is the standard USB cable.)
to print server
to printer
Note that the Jetdirect print server does not support
parallel-to-USB converters (for connecting a parallel
printer to a USB host) -- it works with USB printers only.
Make sure that the cable is connected firmly to both the
printer and the print server. Fully inserting the plug takes
more force than most USB connections.
2. Make sure that the printer and the print server are powered
on.
3. Make sure that the printer is Online or Ready.
4. You can check whether the print server is sending the page
in a printer language (PDL) that the printer supports. If the
language is not supported by the printer, the page will not
print or will be unreadable if it does print.
By default, the print server is configured to determine the
appropriate printer language automatically. It is possible
that the print server is not able to determine automatically
which language it should use for your printer.
You can cycle through the 4 printer languages using the
following procedure:
a. Press and hold the print server’s test
button.
After about 3 seconds, the power/status LED
changes to amber. Continue to hold the button until
the power/status LED

b. Briefly press and release the test
again to request the configuration page in the next
language.
c. Verify that a readable page is printed. Repeat these
steps up to four times if necessary to receive a
configuration page you can read.
If you still cannot read the page, refer to your printer
documentation to find out which of the following 4 printer
languages are supported by your printer:
❍ ASCII
❍ PCL
❍ PostScript
❍ HP/GL-2
5. It may be necessary to re-initialize the connection between
the printer and the print server by cycling power on the
print server. (Unplug the power cable from the print server;
then plug it back in.) Do this with the printer switched ON.
Can you now print a Jetdirect configuration page?
If yes, click on the Yes button. This returns you to the page in the
troubleshooting procedure where you check the I/O status of the
print server. Continue with step 2 on that page.
If no, your print server has a problem that requires assistance
from HP Jetdirect technical support; click on the No button for
information on contacting HP.

Configuration page prints?
for HP Jetdirect 175x external print server/Internet connector for USB
and HP Jetdirect 310x external print server/Internet connector for
USB
The Jetdirect configuration page is a page that the print server sends to
the attached printer, both as a test of the connection between the print
server and the printer, and as an display of the status of the print
server’s functions.
If you are able to print a Jetdirect configuration page on your printer,
click on the Yes button below to continue with the troubleshooting
procedure. This takes you to information about interpreting the results
contained on the configuration page.
If you are not able to print a Jetdirect configuration page on your
printer, or if you don't know how to print one, click on the No button
below to start evaluating the print server's ability to print a
configuration page. Clicking on the No button will also give you
information on how to print a test page.

Configuration page does not print,
or is unreadable.
for HP Jetdirect 175x external print server/Internet connector for USB
and HP Jetdirect 310x external print server/Internet connector for
USB
If the configuration page does not print successfully, try the steps
below. If the page prints but is unreadable, note step 4 particularly.
1. Make sure your printer is connected to your print server by a
USB A-to-B cable. (This is the standard USB cable.)
to print server
to printer
Note that the print server does not support parallel-to-USB
converters (for connecting a parallel printer to a USB host) -- it
works with USB printers only. Make sure that the cable is
connected firmly to both the printer and the print server.
2. Make sure that the printer and the print server are powered on.
3. Make sure that the printer is Online or Ready.
4. Make sure that the printer supports one of these printer
languages:
❍ ASCII
❍ PCL
❍ PostScript
❍ HP/GL-2
The print server can print a configuration page in any of these
languages. By default, the print server is configured to
determine the appropriate printer language automatically. It is
possible that the print server is not able to determine
automatically which language it should use for your printer.
Please refer to your printer documentation to find out which
printer languages are supported by your printer. Then check the
electronic documentation on the Jetdirect CD-ROM for
information on setting a specific printer language for the
configuration page, to match one of the languages supported by
your printer.
5. It may be necessary to re-initialize the connection between the
printer and the print server by cycling power on the print server.
(Unplug the power cable from the print server; then plug it back
in.) Do this with the printer switched ON.
Can you now print a Jetdirect configuration page?
If yes, click on the Yes button for information on interpreting the
configuration page.
If no, your print server has a problem that requires assistance from HP
Jetdirect technical support; click on the No button for information on
contacting HP.
