Introduction
HP Jetdirect EIO internal print servers are network interface cards
for HP Enhanced Input/Output (EIO) printers and MFP
(multifunction peripheral) products. With an HP Jetdirect print
server, you can connect and share your printer anywhere on your
network and print at network speeds.
HP Jetdirect EIO print servers support connection to Fast Ethernet
(IEEE 802.3/802.3u 10/100Base-TX) networks. The print server
provides a single RJ-45 connector port for a network connection
using an unshielded, twisted-pair network cable. See Figure 1-1.
Figure 1-1 HP Jetdirect EIO Print Server
When connected and powered on, the print server autonegotiates
with your network to operate with a link speed of either 10 or 100
Mbps, and to communicate using full- or half-duplex mode.
However, you can manually configure the link using the printer
control panel, or other configuration tools once network
communications is established.
A typical network using an HP Jetdirect EIO print server is
illustrated in Figure 1-2.

Installation Procedures
CAUTION
HP Jetdirect cards contain electronic
components that can be damaged by static
electricity through electrostatic discharge
(ESD). To prevent ESD damage, maintain frequent
contact with any bare sheet metal surface on the
printer. A grounding wrist strap (or similar device)
is useful for this purpose. Handle the card carefully
at all times. Avoid touching electronic components
or circuit paths.
Verify Printer Operation
To verify that your printer is working properly, print a Printer
Configuration page. The Printer Configuration page will display the
operating status of the printer.
The steps to print a Printer Configuration page varies with each
printer model. For most printers with a control panel, a menu map
is provided to navigate the control panel menus. To print a Printer
Configuration page, see your printer documentation for specific
instructions.
Note
ENWW
The name of the Printer Configuration page
may also vary by printer model. For example,
HP DesignJet printers provide a “Service
Configuration print” that displays status
information.
Installation Procedures 11
Remove Power to Printer, Install the
Hardware
Figure 2-1 Remove Power, Install and Connect the Card
RJ-45

Troubleshooting Tools
HP Jetdirect Configuration Page
As illustrated in Chapter 2, the Jetdirect Configuration page
provides comprehensive print server status. It is an important
diagnostic tool, especially if network communications with the print
server is not available.
In most HP LaserJet printers, a Jetdirect Configuration page will
automatically print when you print a Printer Configuration page.
In HP DesignJet printers, Jetdirect configuration information will
be included on the Service Configuration print. Refer to your printer
documentation to print configuration pages for your printer.
10/100Base-TX Link Configuration
HP Jetdirect 10/100Base-TX print servers support 10 or 100 Mbps
network link speeds using full-duplex or half-duplex transmission
channels. By default, the print server will attempt to autonegotiate
its link operation with the network.
When connecting to network hubs and switches that do not support
autonegotiation, the print server will configure itself for 10-Mbps
or 100-Mbps half-duplex operation. For example, when connected
to a non-negotiating 10 Mbps hub, the print server card will
automatically set itself to operate at 10-Mbps half-duplex.
If the print server is not able to connect to the network through
autonegotiation, you can manually set the link operating mode
using one of the following methods:
ENWW
Troubleshooting Tools 21
O
the printer’s control panel (if it has one). See Appendix C for more
information.
O
the embedded Web server running on the Jetdirect print server.
O
accessing the Telnet interface on the Jetdirect print server.
O
using a TFTP (Trivial File Transfer Protocol) configuration file
that is downloaded, for example, from a BootP or DHCP server.
Link-Speed LEDs
The HP Jetdirect print server provides 2 light-emitting diodes
(LEDs) near the RJ-45 connector. These LEDs indicate the
operating link speed (10 Mbps or 100 Mbps) of the print server.

Link Troubleshooting
If the HP Jetdirect print server does not successfully connect to
the network:
O
both link speed LEDs (10 and 100) will be off
O
a “LOSS OF CARRIER ERROR” will be indicated on the Jetdirect
Configuration Page.
ENWW
Troubleshooting Tools 22
Note
The HP Jetdirect 10/100Base-TX print server may
require up to 10 seconds to establish a connection
on the network.
Try the following troubleshooting procedures:
O
Verify cabling connections.
O
Configure the print server’s 10/100TX link setting directly (for
example, using the EIO menu on the printer’s control panel).
Verify that the configuration of the connecting network device
(such as a network switch) matches. For example, if you set the
print server for 100Base-TX Full-Duplex operation, the port on
the network switch must also be set to 100Base-TX Full-Duplex
operation. Power-cycle the printer to reinitialize the setting.
O
On the Jetdirect Configuration Page, compare your configuration
for the following parameters:
Parameter
Expected Messages for 10/100TX Cards
PORT SELECT:
RJ-45
PORT CONFIG:
100TX HALF, 100TX FULL, 10BASE-T HALF,
10BASE-T FULL
AUTONEGOTIATION:
ON (Autonegotiation is enabled), or
OFF (Autonegotiation is disabled, 10/100TX
configuration has been manually set)
ENWW
Troubleshooting Tools 23
Resetting to Factory Defaults
You can restore default values by performing a cold reset on your
printer (see your printer documentation for instructions).
O
To perform a cold reset on some older HP LaserJet printers,
turn off the printer and then press and hold the Go, Start, or
Pause/Resume button as you turn the printer back on.
O
To perform a cold reset on many recent HP LaserJet printers and
MFPs, you must interrupt the printer’s power-on sequence to
enter the printer service menu, and then select Cold Reset.
A document that describes how to perform a cold reset on many
HP printers is available on HP’s Web site. To view the document,
visit HP online support at:
http://www.hp.com/go/support
and search for document file hpj02300.html.
CAUTION
A cold reset restores both your printer and
Jetdirect configuration to their factory
default values.
Controlling Network Protocols
The HP Jetdirect print server can simultaneously support multiple
network communication protocols. This allows network computers
that may be using different protocols to communicate with the same
printer.
Each protocol used on the print server may require some
configuration before the printer can communicate on the network.
For some protocols, required parameters are automatically sensed
and user-specified settings are not needed. However, for other
protocols, there may be many parameters to configure.
ENWW
Troubleshooting Tools 24
Enabling or Disabling Network Protocols
When you first install the Jetdirect print server from the factory,
all supported network protocols are enabled (or turned on)
whenever you turn the printer on.
If a network protocol is enabled, the card may actively transmit on
the network even when there are no computers on the network that
use the protocol. This may increase network traffic. To eliminate
unnecessary traffic, you can disable unused protocols. Disabling
unused protocols lets you:
O
reduce network traffic by eliminating broadcast messages from
unused protocols (for example, IPX/SPX and TCP/IP).
O
provide better control over who prints to the printer by
eliminating users from other networks who might accidentally
route print jobs to this printer.
O
eliminate unnecessary information on the Jetdirect
Configuration Page, which displays status information
for all enabled protocols.
O
display protocol-specific error conditions on the printer’s control
panel for enabled protocols only.
Protocols can be enabled or disabled on the print server through a
variety of tools, such as Telnet, Web browser access to the embedded
Web server, the printer control panel, and HP Web Jetadmin
management software.

Introduction to Network Printing
Network Printing Configurations
Networks consist of computers connected together to share
information and resources, such as printers. On a “client-server”
network, client computers send print jobs to dedicated server
computers that control the use of each printer. On a “peer-to-peer”
network, dedicated servers are not used. Instead, each computer
is configured to send print jobs to the printer directly.
Figure A-1 Basic Network Printing Configurations
Peer-to-Peer printing
Server
Client-Server printing
Client-server printing is typically used in medium to large networks
where dedicated servers are used to manage printing needs of many
users. Client-server networks use network operating systems
(NOS) such as Novell NetWare and Microsoft Windows .
Peer-to-peer printing is more suitable for smaller networks.
On peer-to-peer networks, each user configures his Microsoft
system to print directly to the printer.
ENWW
Introduction to Network Printing 27
Note that peer-to-peer printing can be configured on a client-server
network. For example, a small workgroup might use peer-to-peer
printing even though it is connected to an enterprise-wide
client-server network.
Network Protocols
Regardless of the network type (client-server or peer-to-peer),
your computers and printers must use a common language,
or “network protocol” to communicate with each other. The most
common protocols are IPX (Internet Packet Exchange), made
popular by Novell NetWare networks, and TCP/IP (Transmission
Control Protocol/Internet Protocol), made popular by the Internet.
The HP Jetdirect print server supports these and other popular
network protocols.
Network Addresses
Each device, such as a printer, on a network must be identified by
a unique address. Networks with devices that have the same
address will cause communication failures. If your network is small,
preventing duplicate addresses is relatively easy. But for large
networks, a significant effort must be made to prevent duplicate
addresses.
Network addresses are typically stored on the device. The way
addresses are assigned to each device depends on the network
protocols used on the network:
O
If the device supports operation on an IPX network, assigning an
address is relatively easy – it’s done automatically.
O
If the device supports operation on an IP network, assigning
an address may be more complex, especially for large networks
where communications with other networks is desired. In
addition, there may be many additional IP parameters that
need to be assigned and stored on the device.
ENWW
Introduction to Network Printing 28
Setting Up Your Network Printer
Note
If you are on a large, enterprise TCP/IP network,
check with your network administrator for a valid
IP address and other required parameters.
For a small, private TCP/IP network, a link-local
IP address (in the form 169.254.x.x) may be
automatically assigned.
Check your Jetdirect Configuration page to
determine current network settings.
