Resolution:
Using HP JetAdmin.

Select Device then Modify
Next until arriving at the Options screen.

Here is where we make the necessary changes to the parallel mode and handshaking

Click on the pull down arrow and change the parallel mode to Centronics and make sure handshaking is set to nACK and Busy then click Finish. Reboot the JetDirect box and cycle the power on the printer.

HP Laserjet 4050. Can I connect from my TCP/IP to JetDirect?


To use a printer DIRECTLY into your PC or laptop (without plugging both into a network hib, or switch), you need to use a CROSSOVER patch cable.

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.

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

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

HP DesignJet 450c printer issues.


You can purchase a External JetDirect card from any reputable HP (or computer) agent. This will allow you to plug the 450 directly into the network. The problem with the large format printers not being supported is strange to me. I have never had a problem, simply load the drivers and away you go. If the 450 drivers dont work for you, you can select any of the older drivers (750c recomended) and they will work on the 450c

I have an Okidata Pacemark 3410 and the alarm light is blinking and will not print. i turn on and off and the alarm light just comes back on.


Normal 0 This doesn’t help fix all printers because each situation is different and in most cases we don’t have enough information to determine the fix. So hope this will provide some help.

Could have a corrupt driver.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and when the CD software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

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.)

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

To Change/Configure Parameters Enter:

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 !

Okidata 3410 pacemark not printing correctly


Well, I had that problem once. What I did was that I used the printers cleaning tools. You can acces them by entering Printers in the ControlPanel. Then right click on your printer and select Settings. Look through there. Worked for me.
