Print a config page and check the IP address.
On the PC right click the 4050, go to properties, go to ports.
Make sure the IP address is the same as the printer.
Also on the rear of the printer, make sure that the green light on the JetDirect is on.
Check the config page (the 2nd page) right below the EIO X - JetDirect heading.

Replace the Jetdirect Card. You probably have a 615N version and HP recalled them years ago with a free upgrade to the 620N. Google the Jetdirect 620N to locate a refurb. it should run you about $150

Trouble with wireless connection JetDirect ew2400 on Dlink DIR855


I found that the EW2400 Jetdirect will not work UNLESS you use WEP security. I have tried several times setting up using the WPA, but with no luck. Once I changed my wireless router to WEP and configured the EW2400 with the WEP settings, it worked with no issues - hope this helps

I have a HP 2200 Printer with a hp jetdirect 615n model j6057a Iam unable to get the printer to tell me the mac address. Help to locate MAC another way.


If you know the IP of the printer & the printer is connected to the network, try pinging the IP address of the printer.
After that, open a command prompt & type the following command then press Enter:
arp -a
This will display the arp cache on your computer. Check the list & find your printer's IP, & opposite to it, you will find its MAC address listed.

All printers with HP hJetDirect 615n card not printing


Known failure with the jetdirect 615s, the more reliable cards are the 610 or the 620. According to HP tech support stay away from the 615.

All printers with HP JetDirect 615n will not print


Is the 615n an internal print server not one in the EIO slot. From memory if so it has a really high failure rate. Try getting JetDirect cards for EIO slots and seeing if they work.

HP 2420 Issue


Print a configuration page found under the info menu on the printer. Make sure that under options it shows the network card as being an installed otion (it will show enven if its a built-in embedded card) If it doesn't show you have a bad jetdirect card. If it does show make sure the IP address, Subnetmask and Default Gateway listed on the page match that shown on your SERVER & WORKSTATIONS.

If the card info on the config page reads 0000 then you will need to reconfigure the card through the menu.

If you are using a 615N Jetdirect card in the printer and it doesn't list on the config page it's most likely a bad card as they have been dying regularly. If and only if it's a HP 615N card, jump on HP's support chat at HP.com and go through the on-line chat. If your persistent and insist, they will replace the card for free. You will have to be persistent though and tell them to look up the service note that authorizes after warranty replacement. They know it's their but unless your persistent they will play dumb try and charge you. Hope that helps you.

Hp laserjet 4200 printer- how to find the current ip address?


To have an IP address for the printer you must either have a HP4200n or install a Jetdirect card into the printer. The Jetdirect or "N" version of the printer with the built in Jetdirect holds the network IP address. Subnet Mask, Gateway Derfault and handles the networking functions. If you have a 4200n or Jetdirect installed it will print out on the configuration page.

The standard HP 4200 doesn't have the networking capability without adding the card. In the event that you have a card installed and its not recognizing the card on the configutation page it may be bad. The HP 615n cards are known to have burn out issues. If you have to install a card to upgrade your printer, I recommend a HP 620n or better to get around the known bad issues with the 615n cards.

How to setup JetDirect Plus (J2591A)


Hi Sam,

I had a similar problem and solved it, so here is a step by step. Connected to a Linksys 54G wirekess router/hub it works fine on Vista and XP, the approach is the same but some windows might look different. You may not even need the HP software at all, as Windows recognizes the HP JetDirect. Also, depending on your PC software configuration, e.g Firewall settings and router settings you may have to permanently permit various communication request. The steps below are to be understood as a guide line and may vary form yours as there are different ways to achieve the settings. On Vista, Telnet is disabled by default and needs to be enabled frist. On XP telnet is enabled by default. If you use a Linksys or similar router, you may need to enable DHCP for some addresses or range that will be used. In such case see you router manual how to do that.


Step 1:

you need to know what your LAN address is, to find out you can open a DOS window and enter IPCONFIG, this will give you the current IP address and subnet mask. On a small home network it may be 192.168.1.xxx and sbunet mask may be 255. 255. 255. 0, yous may be different. Take note of these values (IP: aaa.bbb.ccc.ddd) as you will have to set the HP JetDirect J2591A to the same address range.

Step 2:

connect the printer to the HP JetDirect, have paper in the printer, power the HP JetDirect and hold the test button on the HP JetDirect for about 7 seconds, the printer will then print the current HP JetDirect settings. You may notice the address range the HP JetDirect is set to may not be the same address range as you need it to be (your noted once)

Step 3:

connect a PC computer directly to the HP JetDirect using an Ethernet CROSSOVER cable OR connect a PC via a hub and tow standard Ethernet cables to the HP JetDirect.

Step 4:

TEMPORARELY change this PC computer network address to the same address range as the HP JetDirect address range (www.xxx.yyy.zzz) currently is set to and reboot the PC.

Step 5:

after reboot, the Status LED on the HP JetDirect should be solid on and the activity LED should be off or flashing occasionally, idicating some network traffic. Open a DOS window on the PC and run a telnet session by entering TELNET www.xxx.yyy.zzz [ENTER]. You may have to hit the Enter key tow times for a connection to start. You will then see a screen as follow:



Please type [Return] two times, to initialize telnet configuration
For HELP type "?"
> >
===JetDirect Telnet Configuration===
Present Config : DHCP
MAC Address : 00:60:b0:ab:cb:4e

IP Address : 192.168.1.8
Subnet Mask : 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway : 192.168.1.1
Syslog Server : 0.0.0.0
Idle Timeout : 90 Seconds
Set Cmnty Name : Not Specified
Host Name : HP_PRINTER_SERVER

DHCP Config : Enabled
Passwd : Disabled
Novell : Disabled
DLC/LLC : Disabled
Ethertalk : Disabled
Banner page : Enabled
>
To Change/Configure Parameters Enter:
Parameter-name: value <Carriage Return>

Parameter-name Type of value
ip: IP-address in dotted notation
subnet-mask: address in dotted notation
default-gw: address in dotted notation
syslog-svr: address in dotted notation
idle-timeout: seconds in integers
set-cmnty-name: alpha-numeric string (32 chars max)
host-name: alpha-numeric string (upper case only, 32 chars max)
dhcp-config: 0 to disable, 1 to enable
novell: 0 to disable, 1 to enable
dlc-llc: 0 to disable, 1 to enable
ethertalk: 0 to disable, 1 to enable
banner: 0 to disable, 1 to enable

Type passwd to change the password.

Type "?" for HELP, "/" for current settings or "quit" to save-and-exit.
Or type "exit" to exit without saving configuration parameter entries
>

Step 6:

Now you can change (likely neccessary) the HP JetDirect settings, make sure the HP JetDirect IP address is in the same range as you need it to be (for example aaa.bbb.ccc.25), also be sure to set the DHCP Config to Enabled. Optional you may want to enter a Host Name, for example: HP_PRINTER_SERVER, once you are done these new settings must be saved by entering 'quit' [Enter]. You may want to repeat Step 2 and print the new settings to convice youself the settings are retained and correct. (power cycle the JetDirect of course)

Step 7:

Connect your HP JetDirect to the intended network.

Step 8;

On the PC used to do the HP JetDirect configuration setup, restore the PC's initial network IP sddress and reboot it so it can be used again with its original settings.

Step 9:

On a PC connected to the same network as the HP JetDirect, open a DOS window and run a ping by entering: ping aaa.bbb.ccc.25 [Enter] depending on firewall settings you may have to grant permission to allow the ping to come through. You should then see a screen similar to this:


C:UsersHW_Dude>ping 192.168.1.8

Pinging 192.168.1.8 with 32 bytes of data:
Reply from 192.168.1.8: bytes=32 time=5ms TTL=60
Reply from 192.168.1.8: bytes=32 time=3ms TTL=60
Reply from 192.168.1.8: bytes=32 time=3ms TTL=60
Reply from 192.168.1.8: bytes=32 time=3ms TTL=60

Ping statistics for 192.168.1.8:
Packets: Sent = 4, Received = 4, Lost = 0 (0% loss),
Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds:
Minimum = 3ms, Maximum = 5ms, Average = 3ms

C:UsersHW_Dude>

Note, there are 4 packets send and received without any loss. This is what you expect to see and great confirmation the HP JetDirect is on the network and ready. If you don't get that then there may be an issue with cabling and/or the firewall settings, you may want to double check these in such case.

Step 10:

On any PC connected to this network one can now insatll/connect to the printer that is connected to the HP JetDirect, using the Windows Add Printer Dialog, click to open the add printer wizard. Check the button for LOCAL printer (yes local, not networked !!! Who would have thought of that !? Thanks Bill G.) On the next screen that opens check the 'create new port' option and select 'Standard TCP/IP Port' OR (if available) 'HP Standard TCP/IP Port) and ckick Next. Another windows opens with TCP/IP setup wizard, click Next. An window opens, enter the HP JetDirect IP address (aaa.bbb.ccc.25) and click Next. Follow the Windows guide and finish entering the requested information. You may then want to print a Test Page once the dialog is completed, you may have to permanently allow requested traffic in the firewall settings again.

Step 11:

Your done, congratulations !
