    Network Printing Basics Networks consist of computers connected together to share information and resources, such as printers. There are two ways to share printers on a network: client-server and peer-to-peer. Peer-to-peer printing (Direct Mode) Client-server printing Server Figure 1.1 Network Printing Configurations On a client-server network, client computers send print jobs to dedicated server computers that control the use of each printer.

  • Page 12: Customer Support, Hp Support Online

    Note that both peer-to-peer and client-server printing can be used on the same network. For example, a small workgroup might use peer-to-peer printing even though it is connected to an enterprise-wide client-server network. Regardless of the network type (client-server or peer-to-peer), your computers and printers must use a common language, or “network protocol”...

  • Page 25: Introduction

    TCP/IP Configuration Introduction To operate properly on a TCP/IP network, the HP Jetdirect print server must be configured with valid TCP/IP network configuration parameters, such as an IP address. Depending on your printer and system, this can be done in the following ways: When shipped from the factory, the HP Note Jetdirect print server has no IP address.

  • Page 26

    Note The BOOTP daemon, bootpd, must be running on a BOOTP server that is accessible by the Jetdirect print server. By using Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP). This protocol is supported in HP-UX, Solaris, Linux, Windows and Mac OS systems. (Refer to your network operating system manuals to verify that your operating system supports DHCP.) If not configured through BOOTP/TFTP, the HP Jetdirect print server will also attempt to download its...

  • Page 27

    By using the arp and ping commands from your system. By setting configuration parameters using Telnet. In order to set configuration parameters, set up a Telnet connection from your system to the HP Jetdirect print server using the default IP address. The default IP address takes effect two minutes after the printer is turned on (if none of the other configuration methods have been used).

  • Page 28: Using Bootp/tftp On Unix, Why Use Bootp/tftp

    Using BOOTP/TFTP on UNIX This section describes how to configure the print server using BOOTP (Bootstrap Protocol) and TFTP (Trivial File Transfer Protocol) services on UNIX servers. BOOTP and TFTP are used to download network configuration data from a server to the HP Jetdirect print server over the network.

  • Page 29: Configuring The Bootp Server

    Ease of configuration management. Network configuration parameters for the entire network can be in one location. Ease of HP Jetdirect print server configuration. Complete network configuration can be automatically downloaded each time the print server is powered on. Systems That Use Network Information Service (NIS) If your system uses NIS, you may need to rebuild the NIS map with the BOOTP service before performing the BOOTP...

  • Page 30

    For a description of entries, see “TFTP Configuration File Entries“. Configuration parameters retrieved via TFTP are optional. Note HP recommends that the BOOTP server be located on the same subnet as the printers it serves. BOOTP broadcast packets may not be forwarded by routers unless the routers are properly configured.

  • Page 31

    Note that the configuration data contains “tags” to identify the various HP Jetdirect parameters and their settings. The tags are identified in the following table. Table 3.1 Bootptab File Tags nodename The name of the peripheral. This name identifies an entry point to a list of parameters for a specific peripheral.

  • Page 32

    A colon (:) indicates the end of a field, and a backslash (\) indicates that the entry is continued on the next line. Spaces are not allowed between the characters on a line. Names, such as host names, must begin with a letter and can contain only letters, numbers, periods, or hyphens.The underline character (_) is not allowed.

    Table 3.2 TFTP Configuration File Parameters (3 of 3) telnet: If set to 0, this parameter instructs the print server not to allow incoming Telnet connections. To regain access, change the setting in the TFTP configuration file and power cycle the print server, or cold reset the print server to factory default values.

  • Page 37: Unix Systems

    If the Jetdirect print server and BOOTP/DHCP Note server are located on different subnets, IP configuration may fail unless the routing device supports “BOOTP Relay” (allows the transfer of BOOTP/DHCP requests between subnets). UNIX Systems For more information on setting up DHCP on UNIX systems, see the bootpd man page.

  • Page 38: Windows Systems

    Windows Systems HP Jetdirect print servers support IP configuration from a Windows DHCP server. This section describes how to set up a pool, or “scope,” of IP addresses that the Windows server can assign or lease to any requester. When configured for BOOTP/ DHCP operation (factory default), the HP Jetdirect print server makes a request to the DHCP server for its IP configuration when the print server is turned on.

  • Page 39

    Windows 2000 Server/Server 2003 To set up a DHCP scope on a Windows 2000 server, perform the following steps: 1. Run the Windows DHCP manager utility. Windows 2000: Click Start, select Settings and Control Panel. Open the Administrative Tools folder and run the DHCP utility.

  • Page 40

    Note If subnetting is used, the subnet mask defines which portion of an IP address specifies the subnet and which portion specifies the client device. 7. If applicable, enter the range of IP addresses within the scope to be excluded by the server. Then click Next. 8.

  • Page 41

    10. You have successfully set up the DHCP scope on this server. Click Finish to close the wizard. 11. Configure your printer with a reserved IP address within the DHCP scope: a. In the DHCP tree, open the folder for your scope and select Reservations.

  • Page 42: Enabling Or Disabling Dhcp

    Enabling or Disabling DHCP If you do not want your HP Jetdirect print server configured via DHCP, you must reconfigure the print server to use a different configuration method: 1. You can use your Web browser to access the embedded Web server on the print server to choose the configuration method or to modify TCP/IP parameters.

  • Page 43

    If the DHCP configuration state is changed Note from disabled to enabled, the print server assumes it should acquire its configuration information from a DHCP server. This means that when the session is completed or the print server is reset, the TCP/IP protocol for the print server is re-initialized and all current configuration information is deleted.

  • Page 44: Using Rarp

    Using RARP This subsection describes how to configure the print server using the Reverse Address Resolution Protocol (RARP) on UNIX and Linux systems. This setup procedure enables the RARP daemon running on your system to respond to a RARP request from the HP Jetdirect print server and to supply the IP address to the print server.

  • Page 45

    6. Edit the /etc/hosts file to add your designated IP address and node name for the HP Jetdirect print server. For example: laserjet1 7. Edit the /etc/ethers file (/etc/rarpd.conf file in HP- UX 10.20) to add the LAN hardware address/station address (from the configuration page) and the node name for the HP Jetdirect print server.

  • Page 46: Using The Arp And Ping Commands

    Using the arp and ping Commands You can configure an HP Jetdirect print server with an IP address using an ARP (Address Resolution Protocol) command from a supported system. The protocol is not routable, that is, the workstation from which the configuration is made must be located on the same network segment as the HP Jetdirect print server.

  • Page 47

    To configure a Jetdirect print server, use the following commands. Depending on the system, the LAN hardware address requires a specific format. From a system command prompt (Windows): arp -s <IP address> <LAN hardware address> ping <IP address> From a UNIX command prompt: arp -s <IP address>...

  • Page 48

    Note Once the IP address has been set on the print server, additional arp and ping commands will be ignored for configuration. Once the IP address is configured, arp and ping cannot be used for configuration unless the print server is reset to factory values.

  • Page 49: Using Telnet

    Using Telnet This subsection describes how to configure the print server using Telnet. Note To use Telnet commands with the HP Jetdirect print server, a route must be available from your workstation to the print server. Simplistically, this means that there must be a match between the network identification of your system to that of the HP Jetdirect print server.

  • Page 50

    CAUTION Using Telnet to change dynamically-configured Jetdirect print servers (for example, using BOOTP, RARP, DHCP), may result in a static configuration depending on the parameter being changed. To set configuration parameters, you must set up a Telnet connection from your system to the HP Jetdirect print server. 1.

    This procedure resets all TCP/IP parameters, Note but only affects the TCP/IP subsystem. After this has been done the print server should be power cycled. Parameters for other subsystems such as IPX/SPX (Novell NetWare) or AppleTalk are not affected. Using the Embedded Web Server You can set IP parameters on HP Jetdirect print servers that support the embedded web server.

  • Page 56: Moving To Another Network

    Moving to Another Network When moving an HP Jetdirect print server that is configured with an IP address to a new network, make sure that the IP address does not conflict with addresses on the new network. You may change the IP address of the print server to one that can be used on the new network, or erase the current IP address and configure another address after you are installed on the new network.

  • Page 57

    Embedded Web Server Each HP Jetdirect 170X print server contains an embedded web server that can be accessed through a supported web browser on an intranet. The embedded web server provides access to configuration and management pages for the HP Jetdirect print server and the attached peripheral device.

    Incompatible Peripherals Even though they provide a standard parallel port, several kinds of HP printers are not supported for Jetdirect networking on traditional networks due to incompatibility or lack of necessary features. Graphical Device Interface (GDI) printers, also called host- based printers, are not supported.

  • Page 102

    Due to the variety of both HP and non-HP printers that support parallel-port connections, the use of HP Jetdirect print servers for network connectivity and access to printer features is not assured. To enhance the chances of success, note the following: The printer software and driver must be usable over a network.

    FTP Printing FTP (File Transfer Protocol) is a basic TCP/IP connectivity utility to transfer data between systems. FTP printing is a way to use FTP to send print files from a client system to an HP Jetdirect-connected printer. In an FTP printing session, the client connects and sends a print file to the HP Jetdirect FTP server which in turn passes the print file to the printer.

    Print Files The HP Jetdirect FTP server transfers print files to the printer but does not interpret them. For proper printing, print files must be in a language recognized by the printer (such as PostScript, PCL, or unformatted text). For formatted print jobs, you must first print to a file from your application using the driver for the selected printer, then transfer the print file to the printer through an FTP session.

    Data Connection A second connection, a data connection, is created each time a file is transferred between the client and the FTP server. The client controls the creation of a data connection by issuing the commands that require a data connection (such as FTP ls, dir or put commands).

    If login is successful, a message “230” will be displayed on the client system. In addition, the available HP Jetdirect ports for printing will be displayed. For an example of a successful login, “Example of an FTP Session.” Ending the FTP Session To end an FTP session, type quit or bye.
