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 .

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.

LED State Description

Off Not linked

On Link established at indicated speed (10 or

100 Mbps)

LEDs

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:

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

A

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.

Introduction to Network Printing 27

ENWW

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.
