    Can you disconnect the printer from the server and hook it up locally?



    It could be the print server and not the printer

I believe you have this setting incorrect: the MFRTYPMDL should be *IBM6400EP. That is because you want the AS400 to send out plain old ASCII to our printer. It is an ASCII printer and not a HP. The codes are different.

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).

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 (http://bizsupport1.austin.hp.com/bc/docs/support/SupportManual/c00758101/c00758101.pdf) 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.

AS400 Spool files stuck in outq in send mode


I have WiFi Zebra QL420. In my case a simple header label prints fine then the complex label (many fields, barcode, lines & boxes) gets stuck. Labels are in separate spol files. We have many other labels printing fine, just this one ALWAYS gets stuck.
If I send same data from PC to printer it works fine.
I can see with ethernet sniffer that header label data goes but complex label doesn't even leave the iSeries. My sniffer is too crude to tell me what LPR level protocol is saying.

Printronix p5010 with AS/400 IBM server


I can get the P5010 printing on your AS400... But, there are to many things to check without knowing a little more about your environment.

If you can't ping the PTX P5010 from the AS400 or a PC, then you have a printer configuration problem.
Take the printer offline and hit the Print Config button. and then the enter on OPs Panel. Then post top or first paragraph of the config. so I can look at...

__________________________________________________________
If you can ping the printer from the AS400...
You will need to create a remote out que on AS400... command is crtoutq then hit F4...

if you can't post the printer config here... Fax it 972-233-7306, Attn: P5010, Toby
