Question is, if you DO type anything does it save then? I had a similar problem and the box was faulty. Having a host name in their won't stop it from working.

If you get a message about Additional Port Information Required, then the printer was not found using the host name. You can go back and retry or using the printer's IP address instead of the host name.

7. Select HP or Hewlett-Packard from the list of manufacturers and select and select your printer model. Click Next.

If your printer model was not listed, then select Have Disk, browse the HP CD that came with your printer and select the first file that starts with hp and ends with inf.or use currently installed driver if you have teh correct on installed. Click Open then OK. Select your printer model. Click Next.

8. It will ask for the Printer name -- enter a new name or use the existing one. This will be the name of the printer that you select from other applications.

Can not print on my ricoh 2018


it sounds as if you have an IP address conflict, are you set to Dynamic or Static? if static set the last Octet ie:192.168.0.xxx to something at the top of your ip range, print out a config sheet from the Copier/MFP by going into user tools printer config page and print.
at the bottom r/h side is the host name of the printer typically with Ricoh it will be Rnpxxxx
set the hostname on your tcp/ip port to the host name ensure that you have dns information set on the MFP and your pc and also gateway info on both and that should fix the issue once your reboot the pc and MFP.

if this resolves your issue please rate me accordingly.

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.

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 !
