What is the default ip address for powerconnect 5212


You must assign an IP address to the switch to gain management access over the network. You may also need to a establish a default gateway between the switch and management stations that exist on another network segment. You can statically configure a specific IP address or direct the switch to obtain an address from a Boot Protocol (BOOTP) or Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) server when it is powered on. Valid IP addresses consist of four decimal numbers, 0 to 255, separated by periods. Anything outside this format is not accepted by the CLI program. notice.gif NOTICE: By default, the IP address is assigned to VLAN 1 through DHCP. If you select the bootp or dhcp option, IP is enabled but does not function until a BOOTP or DHCP reply has been received. Requests are broadcast periodically by the switch in an effort to learn its IP address. (BOOTP and DHCP values can include the IP address, default gateway, and subnet mask).
To display assigned IP settings using the CLI:
  1. From the Privileged Exec or Normal Exec level mode, type show ip interface and press <Enter>.

The assigned IP address and subnet mask displays.

  1. From the Privileged Exec mode, type show ip redirects to display the assigned gateway IP address. Press <Enter>.

The following example displays IP settings assigned by bootp or dhcp using the CLI.

Console#show ip interface

IP address and netmask: 10.1.0.1 255.255.252.0 on VLAN 1,

and address mode: User specified.

Console# show ip redirects

ip default gateway 10.1.0.254

Console#
Before you can assign a static IP address to the switch, you must obtain the following information from your network administrator:

  • IP address for the switch

  • Default gateway for the network

  • Network mask for the network

To assign a static IP address to the switch:
  1. From the Privileged Exec level global configuration mode prompt, type interface vlan 1 to access the interface-configuration mode. Press <Enter>.

  2. Type ip address ip-address netmask, where ip-address is the switch IP address and netmask is the network mask for the network.

  3. Type exit to return to the global configuration mode prompt. Press <Enter>.

  4. To set the IP address of the default gateway for the network to which the switch belongs, type ip default-gateway gateway, where gateway is the IP address of the default gateway. Press <Enter>.

  5. To save your configuration changes, type copy running-config startup-config and then press <Enter>.

notice.gif NOTICE: Only one VLAN can be assigned an IP address. If you assign an address to any other VLAN, the new address overrides the original IP address. The following example shows how to set a static IP address using the CLI.

Console(config)# interface vlan 1

Console(config-if)# ip address 192.168.1.5 255.255.255.0

Console(config-if)# exit

Console(config)# ip default-gateway 192.168.1.254

Console(config)#
To configure the switch for DHCP or BOOTP:

  1. From the Privileged Exec level global configuration mode prompt, type interface vlan 1 to access the interface-configuration mode. Press <Enter>.

  2. At the next prompt, use one of the following commands:

    • To obtain IP settings through DHCP, type ip address dhcp

    • To obtain IP setting through BOOTP, type ip address bootp

  3. Press <Enter>.

  4. To save your configuration changes, type copy running-config startup-config, and then press <Enter>.

We have a networked HP Laserjet 4100; a new PC was added and the printer does not show as available on the network for this new Dell Vostro 460. The driver was installed and still nothing. Can you suggest...


Thank you for contacting FixYa with your printer inquiry.
This is usually a pretty common network problem for printers and other devices on a network. If you network uses DHCP that automatically assigns IP address's you may have developed a conflict when you installed your new printer.
You will want to print a configuration page from both printers to determine what the IP address of each is then manually configure independent IP address for each to preclude further conflicts.
Refer to this excellent HP document page on the LJ4100 Jet Direct Card for manual configuration:

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


Hi,

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 192.0.0.192, 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).

Hi, I have two printer HP 4015n, I installed them on the same time in the same office (two month ago). They worked fine, but this morning all lights keep flashing ( both printer) and can't print. Any...


Thank you for contacting FixYa with your printer inquiry.
Sounds like both these network printers have lost connection to your router or failed to obtain an IP address after server maintenance or network upgrades.
Would suggest printing a configuration page on each of the printers and determine what the IP address is (If there is one) and see if other devices are in conflict. Power down your printers and reseat your Jetdirect Network Cards and confirm cable connections. Re-Power the printers and print configuration again to see if obtaining IP address.
Find out what IP address are to be assigned these printers and manually configure via embedded Web Server or at the printer control panel. Consult your manual or Follow these steps:
Configure the network product View or change network settings
1. Type the IP address into the address line of a Web browser to open the embedded Web server. 2. Click the Networking tab to obtain network information. You can change settings as needed.
Manually configure IPv4 TCP/IP parameters from the control panel In addition to using the embedded Web server, you can also use the control-panel menus to set an IPv4 address, subnet mask, and default gateway. 1. Press Menu . 2. Press the down arrow to highlight CONFIGURE DEVICE, and then press OK. 3. Press the down arrow to highlight I/O, and then press OK. 4. Press the down arrow to highlight EMBEDDED JETDIRECT MENU, and then press OK. 5. Press the down arrow to highlight TCP/IP, and then press OK. 6. Press the down arrow to highlight IPV4 SETTINGS, and then press OK. 7. Press the down arrow to highlight MANUAL SETTINGS, and then press OK. 8. Press the down arrow to highlight IP ADDRESS, and then press OK. -or- Press the down arrow to highlight SUBNET MASK, and then press OK. -or- Press the down arrow to highlight DEFAULT GATEWAY, and then press OK. 9. Use the numeric keypad, or press the up arrow or the down arrow to increase or decrease the number for the first byte of the IP address, subnet mask, or default gateway. 10. Press OK to move to the next set of numbers. To move to the previous set of numbers, press the back arrow . 11. Repeat steps 9 and 10 until the IP address, subnet mask, or default gateway is complete, and then press OK to save the setting. 12. Press Menu to return to the Ready state..

J4167A jetdirect card not ready LAN ERROR-OPEN


if it is recognizing the jet direct card then the card should be good, not sure if yor network is setup for using dhcp but I usually deal with manual settings on these cards. I'm sure you know what your doing but it doesnt hurt to bounce it off others anyway.

I'll assume you know how to access the eio settings for the jetdirect from the menu screen.

choose manual setup instead of dhcp and keep all the othr settings at default except these other 3

1. You'll need to assign a manual I.P. address

2. you'll need a subnet mask I.P

3. You'll need a default gateway...

If you have other printers online then the subnet mask and default gateway should match the other printers but the actuall printer I.P address will of course be different... Hopefully this will help you out, and if so please write this a FixYa!!

My network HP laserjet 4Vprinter and ESI 2830 pocket print server suddenly gives an error message "No RARP/BootP Server". How can I fix this?


the information in the link is too long to paste but you may want to look at it.

HP Jetdirect and Embedded Jetdirect Inside Print Servers - TCP/IP, Messages on Configuration Page or Self-Test Page

Get the IP address subnet and gateway address of a computer in the same network.

Usingthe LJ5's control panel, setup a static IP for the Jet Direct using thenumbers you got from the Laptop, except change the last number of theIP to one that is not being currently being used. Perhaps adding 5 or10 to the highest number in use.
Here are the steps to configure the LJ5.

1.Press MENU, repeatedly, until the following message appears on thecontrol panel: HP LaserJet 5/5n/5m and the original Color LaserJet: HPMIO MENU
2. Press ITEM. CFG NETWORK=NO* will appear.
3. Press the PLUS button once. CFG NETWORK=YES* will appear.
4. Press ENTER or SELECT.
5. Press ITEM repeatedly until CFG TCP/IP=NO* appears.
6. Press the PLUS button. CFG TCP/IP=YES* will appear.
7. Press ENTER or SELECT.
8. Press ITEM until BOOTP=YES* appears.
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.
13. Press ENTER or SELECT.
14. Press ITEM to continue. Repeat Steps 11-13 to configure the remaining bytes of the IP address.
15.Repeat Steps 11-13 to configure the subnet mask bytes (SM BYTE 1=),syslog server IP address (LG BYTE 1=), default gateway (GW BYTE 1=),and timeout (TIMEOUT=).
16. Press ONLINE. Print a self-test page to verify the IP settings.
17. If the test page does not show the correct settings, power cycle the printer and reprint the test page.


else: have the printserver reinstalled

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.

I need to change the IP address on my hp color laser jet 2840 coud you help me with that


Hi,
Most HP printers can be reset to factory defaults (or cold-reset ) by turning the printer off and holding down the Online or Go button while turning the printer back on. The printer control panel display should read "Cold Reset" or "Restoring Factory Settings" or something like these lines. This will remove any IP address that the printer had previously.
When you plug it in, your router should have assigned an ip address automatically. Go into your router and look at the attached devices and it will show you what ip address has been assigned to each device on your network.

Use Web Interface or Manually Assign an IP address NOTE: Network HP Printers allow you to manage them via Internet Explorer. You can enter the IP address that the printer currently has and access its configuration settings. This assumes that the web interface hasn't been locked.
NOTE: We recommend that you install the latest version of Sun's Java software before trying these steps. See this How To: How to Update Sun's Java 2 Runtime Environment Plug-in.
  1. Print the Configuration page if needed. You will be entering the "current" IP Address.
  2. Open Internet Explorer. Delete EVERYTHING from the Address line.
  3. Enter the IP Address in the Address line and press Enter.
  4. You should then connect to the printer. If this fail, go to the next section to assign the IP address manually.

    NOTE: There are 2 basics versions of the web interface. Type 1 is on newer printers. Type 2 is on older models

  5. Type 1: Click the Networking tab.
    Type 2: Click the Administration button. Click the Configuration tab.

  6. Edit the IP address, Subnet Mask, and Gateway as needed.
  7. Do not change any other fields.
  8. Scroll to the bottom and click Apply. Click OK.
  9. Close Internet Explorer.
  10. Restart the Printer. Print the Configuration page to see if number was set.
NOTE: If the above steps do not allow you to assign the IP address via the Wizard, you will need to do it through at the printer itself.
  1. Go to this HP Support Page.

    Configuring TCP/IP through the Front Control Panel

  2. Click the link to your printer model. Highlight these steps.
  3. From the File menu choose Print. In the Page Range section, click Selection. Click Print.

    Note: For the complete printer user guide, go to the HP Printers Support & Troubleshooting page. Locate your specific printer type and model. On its home page, under self-help resources, click the manuals link. Download the printer's User Guide (not the Getting Started Guide). Look for steps to manually configure TCP/IP parameters from the printer control panel.

  4. Follow the steps from the printout to assign the desired IP Address to the printer.

    IP address will be entered at the IP BYTE prompt
    Subnet mask is entered at SM BYTE prompt
    Gateway address is entered at GW BYTE prompt

    Note: The syslog server IP address (LG BYTE 1=) and timeout (TIMEOUT=) do not need configured.

  5. Once the IP Address is entered, restart the Printer. Print the Configuration page to see if number was set.

Hope this helps

Hp laserjet 4200 printer- how to find the current ip address?


To have an IP address for the printer you must either have a HP4200n or install a Jetdirect card into the printer. The Jetdirect or "N" version of the printer with the built in Jetdirect holds the network IP address. Subnet Mask, Gateway Derfault and handles the networking functions. If you have a 4200n or Jetdirect installed it will print out on the configuration page.

The standard HP 4200 doesn't have the networking capability without adding the card. In the event that you have a card installed and its not recognizing the card on the configutation page it may be bad. The HP 615n cards are known to have burn out issues. If you have to install a card to upgrade your printer, I recommend a HP 620n or better to get around the known bad issues with the 615n cards.
