Question about HP Jetdirect 170x Print Server
I have an HP750c Plus, but when I put in a Jetdirect Card j2552a, it cannot be found on the network. It might be because its an old MIO and my new switch cannot communicate with it?
When I install a Jetdirect J4100n, the front panel just goes blank after initializing.. has anyone experience this problem before?Any solutions?
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.
