Assuming the JetDirect card is installed and properly functioning, use the following. Also, you may have to update the rom on the I/O Card to the latest version.


  1. From the front control panel message, Ready or Ready to Plot, press ENTER.
  2. Press the Up arrow key until I/O Setup appears, and then press ENTER.
  3. Press the Up arrow key until Modular appears, and then press ENTER.
  4. From the front control panel message, Cfg Network=No, press ENTER.
  5. Press the Up arrow key to change to Yes, and then press ENTER.
  6. Using the Arrow keys, scroll to Cfg TCP/IP=No appears, and then press ENTER.
  7. Scroll to Yes, and press ENTER.
  8. Press the Up arrow key until BootP=Yes appears, and press ENTER.
  9. Press the Up arrow key to change to No. Press ENTER (When using BootP or DHCP, keep the setting BOOTP = YES *. The BootP or DHCP server will configure the TCP/IP parameters on the HP Jetdirect. No other TCP/IP configuring is necessary.
  10. Press the UP arrow once to get to the IP byte section.
  11. To change the IP byte, proceed as follows:
    1. Press ENTER.
    2. Press the Up or Down arrow key to change the number.
    3. Press ENTER.
    4. Press the Up key to continue to IP Byte2=xxx.
    5. Press ENTER.
  12. Configure the remaining bytes of the IP address in the same manner. A valid IP address is required for proper operation.
  13. Configure the subnet mask bytes (SM), syslog server IP address (LG), default gateway (GW), and timeout (TIMEOUT) by pressing the ENTER and the Up or Down arrows in the same manner as above. The timeout parameter default is 90 seconds. Up to 3,600 seconds can be configured. If set to zero, the timeout feature of the HP Jetdirect print server is disabled; TCP/IP connections will remain open until closed by the server.
  14. Press PREVIOUS repeatedly, until the Ready to Plot or Ready message appears. Refer to the HP Jetdirect Network Interface Configuration Guide to configure the network operating system.
  15. Press the Up and Down arrow keys simultaneously to save the IP address on a 750/755 plotter. (A page should print and the IP addresses will be saved.)

How do i configure my jetdirect 170x


What OS are you using? I had a problem getting the print server to work with Windows 8.1. This is what I found to work: Find the IP address for the printer/server by pushing the "test" button on the print server. "Add a printer" in "Devices and Printers" under Control Panel. Select " The printer that I want wasn't listed", then select "Add a printer using TCP/IP address or hostname". Enter the IP address in the next window and carry on.
I hope this helps. If this is not your problem, you'll need to provide more details about what it is that you need from the print server.

Tip

Setting up (HP Jetdirect print server) Printers on a network


To install the HP printers with a built-in Jetdirect print server as a network printer you need to do the following -
1. Configure the HP's IP address using the printer's Menu options.
Enable the Network and configure the Network settings so it matches the IP range of your network. eg if your IP's are 192.168.0.xxx then set the HP to a high number say 100, set the Subnet Mask to 255.255.255.0
2. Install the HP printer driver on your computer/s using the LPT printer port.
3. Connect the printer to the network hub/router with a LAN cable and power up the printer.
4. Click on Printers an Faxes - right click on the HP printer and click on Properties.
5. Click on Ports and click on Add Port.
6. In available ports - click on Standard TCP/IP Port and then Configure port.
7. Tick the IP box and type in the IP address of the HP's IP address.
8. Click OK and tick Enable bidirectional support and then OK

You need to install the printer driver and configure the TCP/IP port for HP printer the same way on every computer on your network.
Now any computer on your network can print to this printer.

For detailed instructions on configuring the Jetdirect card, go to this WEB site.

9. Press the PLUS button. BOOTP=NO will appear.
o When using BootP or DHCP, keep the setting BOOTP=YES*.
o The BootP or DHCP server will configure the TCP/IP parameters on the HP Jetdirect.
o No other TCP/IP configuring is necessary.
10. Press ENTER or SELECT.
11. Press ITEM. IP BYTE 1 = (value) will appear.
12.Press the PLUS button until the value of the first byte of the IPaddress appears on the control-panel display. By pressing SHIFT and thePLUS button, the value will decrease.

HP750c Plus, with Jetdirect j2552a or j4100n not working.


Here's a few troubleshooting steps that should help you out.

1. Are you getting a link light? If not, check the cable and the switch - if these are OK then you have a bad JetDirect.

2. Print a test sheet from the 750 and check the IP configuration. Be sure that you have an IP address that is on the same subnet as the computer you want to print from. If not, then you either need to configure an appropriate static IP or configure DHCP for the MIO and make sure it is working.

3. Once you have the IP worked out, try to ping the MIO from your PC. You can also try to connect to the MIO using the embedded web server if the firmware is recent enough. If either of these work then you should be in good shape. Try to re-install and see if it works.

One last thing, if you are printing directly to the plotter from the client computer without using a print server then one part of the setup is non-intuitive. When you are asked if the printer is local or network, you have to select "local" even though this is clearly not the case. Then when you get to choose a port, create a new TCP port.

Good luck and if the above doesn't help, post an update and we'll take it from there.

Installing hp laserjet 4100dtn over the network using tcp/ip addr


Hi admin30:
Here is some info for you.
EIO menu (networked printers)
The EIO (enhanced input/output) menu appears only when an EIO device is installed in an EIO slot
on the printer (such as an HP JetDirect print server). The items in the menu depend on the particular
accessory product installed. If the printer contains an HP JetDirect print server EIO card, you can
configure basic networking parameters using the EIO menu. These and other parameters can also
be configured through HP Web JetAdmin.
Table 27. EIO menu
Item Values Explanation
CFG NETWORK=NO NO
YES
Select whether or not you want to use
the HP JetDirect menu.
NO: Bypass the HP JetDirect menu.
YES: Use the HP JetDirect menu. You
must change this to YES each time you
want to use the menu.
Note
You must select CFG NETWORK=YES to
display the following items.
IPX/SPX=ON ON
OFF
Select whether the IPX/SPX protocol
stack (in Novell NetWare networks, for
example) is enabled (ON) or disabled
(OFF).
DLC/LLC=ON ON
OFF
Select whether the DLC/LLC protocol
stack is enabled (ON) or disabled (OFF).
TCP/IP=ON ON
OFF
Select whether the TCP/IP protocol
stack is enabled (ON) or disabled (OFF).
ATALK=ON ON
OFF
FG IPX/SPX=NO NO
YES
Select whether you want to use the IPX/
SPX menu and set IPX/SPX protocol
parameters.
NO: Bypass the IPX/SPX menu items.
YES: Use the IPX/SPX menu items.
In the IPX/SPX menu, you can specify
the frame-type parameter used on your
network.
The default is AUTO, to automatically set
and limit the frame type to the first one
detected.
For Ethernet cards, frame type
selections are EN_8023, EN_II,
EN_8022, EN_SNAP.
For Token Ring cards, frame type
selections include TR_8022, TR_SNAP.
In the IPX/SPX menu for Token Ring
cards, you can also specify NetWare
Source Routing parameters, which are
SRC RT=AUTO (default), OFF, SINGLE R, or
ALL RT.
CFG TCP/IP=NO NO
YES
Select whether you want to use the
TCP/IP menu and set TCP/IP protocol
parameters.
NO: Bypass the TCP/IP menu items.
YES: Use the TCP/IP menu items.
In the TCP/IP menu, you can specify
BOOTP=YES or DHCP=YES for TCP/IP
parameters to be automatically loaded
from a bootP or DHCP server when the
printer is turned on.
If you specify BOOTP=NO and DHCP=NO, you
can manually set the following TCP/IP
parameters from the control panel: each
byte of the IP address (IP), Subnet Mask
(SM), Syslog Server (LG), and Default
Gateway (GW). You can also manually
set the idle timeout period.
Print an HP JetDirect configuration page
to verify your settings. However, note that
the print server might overwrite selected
parameters with values that ensure
proper operation.
Table 27. EIO menu (continued)
Select whether the Apple EtherTalk
protocol stack is enabled (ON) or disabled
(OFF).
