  • Page 39: Default Ip Address

    Default IP Address When in a factory-default state (for example, when shipped from the factory or after a cold-reset), the HP Jetdirect print server has no IP address. A default IP address may or may not be assigned depending on the network environment.

    TCP/IP Configuration Tools Depending on your printer and operating system, an HP Jetdirect print server can be configured with valid TCP/IP parameters for your network in the following ways: Using Software. You can use your printer installation software or the HP Jetdirect print server installation software on supported systems.

    Telnet. You can set 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. Once configured, the print server saves the configuration when powered off/on. For more information, see Embedded Web server.

  • Page 44: Using Bootp/tftp

    BOOTP (Bootstrap Protocol) and TFTP (Trivial File Transfer Protocol) provide a convenient way to automatically configure the HP Jetdirect print server for TCP/IP network operation. When powered on, the Jetdirect print server sends a BOOTP request message onto the network. A properly configured BOOTP server on the network will respond with a message that contains basic network configuration data for the Jetdirect print server.

  • Page 45

    In DHCP, IP configuration parameters are leased and may change over time. When in its factory-default state and powered on, the HP Jetdirect print server will attempt to automatically configure itself using several dynamic methods, one of which is BOOTP.

  • Page 46

    TFTP is used to obtain additional configuration information from a configuration file on a TFTP server. When the HP Jetdirect print server is powered on, it broadcasts a BOOTP request that contains its MAC (hardware) address. A BOOTP server daemon searches the /etc/bootptab file for a matching MAC address, and if successful, sends the corresponding configuration data to the Jetdirect print server as a BOOTP reply.

Each entry specifies a host or network of hosts that are allowed to connect to the printer. The format is “allow: netnum [mask]” where netnum is a network number or host IP address, and mask is an address mask of bits applied to the network number and host address to verify access.

    “scope,” of IP addresses that the Windows server can assign or lease to any requester. When configured for BOOTP or DHCP operation and powered on, the HP Jetdirect print server automatically sends a BOOTP or DHCP request for its IP configuration.

  • Page 66

    7. In the Lease Duration section, select Unlimited, then select OK. HP recommends that all printers be assigned infinite leases to avoid problems resulting from IP addresses that change. Be aware, however, that selecting an unlimited lease duration for the scope causes all clients in that scope to have infinite leases.

  • Page 67

  • Page 69

    8. Set the IP address lease duration for your DHCP clients. Then click Next. HP recommends that all printers be assigned reserved IP addresses. This can be accomplished after you set up the scope (see step 11). 9. Select No to configure DHCP options for this scope later. Then click Next.

To set up DHCP services on a NetWare server, refer to Novell documentation and support. To Discontinue DHCP Configuration CAUTION Changes to an IP address on your HP Jetdirect...

  • Page 71

    Note If you choose to re-enable a DHCP configuration, the print server will acquire its configuration information from a DHCP server. This means that when you choose DHCP and complete your configuration session (using Telnet, for example), the TCP/IP protocol for the print server is re-initialized and all current configuration information is deleted.

  • Page 72: Using Rarp

    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. 1. Turn the printer off.

    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. For example: 00:01:E6:a8:b0:00 laserjet1 If your system uses Network Information Service...

  • Page 74: 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 75

    Depending on the system, the LAN hardware address may require a specific format. For example: For Windows NT 4.0, 2000, XP arp -s 192.168.45.39 00-01-E6-a2-31-98 ping 192.168.45.39 For UNIX arp -s 192.168.45.39 00:01:E6:a2:31:98 ping 192.168.45.39 Note Once the IP address has been set on the print server, additional arp and ping commands will be ignored.

    HP Web Jetadmin software). Creating a Telnet Connection To use Telnet commands with the HP Jetdirect print server, a route must be available from your workstation to the print server. If the print server and your computer must have a similar IP address, that is, the network portion of their IP addresses match, chances are that a route will exist.

  • Page 244: Ip Address

    Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) TCP handles breaking the data into packets and recombining the packets on the receiving end by providing a connection-oriented, reliable, and guaranteed delivery service to another node on the network. When data packets are received at their destination, TCP calculates a checksum for each packet to verify the data is not corrupt.

  • Page 245

    IP Address: (Network Portion) Network addresses are managed by an organization in Norfolk, Virginia recognized as InterNIC. InterNIC has been contracted by the National Science Foundation to manage the Internet addresses and domains. Network addresses are distributed to organizations that are in turn responsible for making sure all attached devices or hosts on the network are properly numbered.

  • Page 246

    IP Address Structure and Class An IP address is comprised of 32 bits of information and divided into 4 sections containing 1 byte each section or 4 bytes total: xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx For efficiency in routing, networks were broken down into three classes, so routing can begin simply by identifying the leading byte of information in the IP address.

  • Page 247: Configuring Ip Parameters

    For configuration methods, see Chapter When powered on, a new HP Jetdirect print server that is unable to retrieve a valid IP address from the network will automatically assign itself a default IP address. The default IP address will depend on the type of network to which the print server is connected.

  • Page 248: Subnets

    Subnets When an IP network address for a particular network class is assigned to an organization, no provision is made for more than one network being present at that location. Local network administrators use subnets to partition a network into several different subnetworks.

    The messages are processed depending on their priority and on how syslogd is set up to operate. You can configure the HP Jetdirect print server with the syslog server’s IP address. When a syslog server is configured, both the HP Jetdirect print server and attached device can send syslog messages using UDP.

  • Page 250

    UDP does not guarantee delivery of messages. The HP Jetdirect print server attempts to eliminate duplicate messages (to minimize unnecessary network traffic). The volume of messages sent by the HP Jetdirect print server is configurable. Methods to configure HP Jetdirect syslog parameters include BOOTP, DHCP, Telnet, the embedded Web server, and management software.

    Jetdirect Peer-to-Peer printing refers to a client's direct print path to a printer, without routing through a network server to a shared printer. Note that HP Jetdirect Peer-to-Peer printing can be used on either Infrastructure or Ad Hoc (Peer-to-Peer) mode wireless topologies.

    HP Jetdirect print servers support a broadcast SSID, sometimes called a zero-length or “blank” SSID. If a blank SSID is configured in Infrastructure mode, the print server will attempt to associate with the network SSIDs detected, starting with the strongest signal.

To support EAP/PSK and selected EAP/802.1x authentication methods, an HP Jetdirect print server may need to contain one or both of the following certificates: CA Certificate. A certificate from a trusted Certificate Authority (CA) is used to validate certificate information received from an authentication server.
