Jetdirect ex default ip

Usually it it set to pick up IP from DHCP/BootP.
If someone had assigned a fixed IP and it is now unknown. It is better to reset the print server to factory default by pushing the little reset button,
Then check you DHCP server for the newly assigned IP address.

You will need a version of HP Jetadmin or HP webjetadmin to configure this print server

How to change the ip address of a hp jetdirect 170X


The manual is located here, and it recommends the following procedure, which starts on page 18.

Connect the Jetdirect box to the printer and the network and power on.
Press the Test button on the back of the Jetdirect box to print a configuration page.

The configuration page should show the IP address of the Jetdirect box.

If this is an IP address in the normal range of your network, ie the first three numbers of the Jetdirect box's IP address and your computer's IP address is the same (such as 192.168.0.) then simply type the IP address into your computers internet browser and you can reach the configuration page. The steps on page 58 detail the user interface for the web login.

If the Jetdirect box does not get an IP address withing 2 minutes of it booting up, it assigns itself an IP address of, and you can connect to it over the network if you change your own network settings to 192.0.0. and a number from 1-254 (but not 192).

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.

I'm pretty good at most computer stuff, but I'm stumped. I'm trying to connect an HPlaserjet5/5m to an HP 170X Print Server on a 16 port dlink switch. I cannot get the hp setup.exe to work off the...

I am not sure if you need the setup.exe file to configure the JetDirect 170x.If you take a look the manual for the JetDirect 170x ( it mentions that this is a "Test" button on the back of the print server. If you press that button when the printer is connect, then it should print out a configuration page. The configuration page will have an IP address that you can browse to with Internet Explorer to configure the JetDirect.

Need to install network printer to DLink Router

It has been a few months, so you probably have resolved this -- but just in case someone else is looking to find out the IP address on the internal print server of an HP Laserjet 4000n printer so they can set it up on their network, here are the steps to find the IP address on the HP JetDirect internal print server:

1. Have the Ethernet cable plugged in to the router and the JetDirect 600n card and power it on.
2. Make sure display screen on printer says "Ready".
3. Press the Menu button on the printer until you see Information Menu.
4, Press the Item button on the right (+) side until you see Print Configuration page.
5. Press the Select button and a configuration page should print.

One page is the printer's configuration and the other page is the print server configuration page. If you have a good JetDirect card, and good connection to your router, the IP address of the printer, plus its subnet mask and default gateway should be shown on the EIO configuration page.

If the printer has been manually set with a static IP address, subnet mask and default gateway that will not work on your network, you will see the settings will indicate "Configured by" User Specified.

To clear those settings and allow DHCP setting, perform a cold reset on the JetDirect card, by powering off the printer, holding down the green "Go" button and powering it back on until you see "COLD RESET," let go of the green Go button, wait a couple of minutes, then run another configuration page to see the freshly assigned DHCP address of the print server.

Hope this helps someone.

Configure tcp ip hp 750c

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.)

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.

I can not print when I connect to my jetdirect print server.

Hi, sorry for late answer, I have been offline for a while.

Connect RJ45 to router and parallel to computer
You need to download Software here first selecting 300x and windows version.
Then you can use the HP JetDirect Wireless Setup Wizard
to setup your printer on network.
You may also be required to install printer drivers, to do this use printer CD or download them from the Internet.
