Internet Printer Connection
Full-featured HP Jetdirect print servers (firmware version x.20.00
or later) support the Internet Printing Protocol (IPP). Value-based
print servers, such as 175x and 200m, are not supported.
Using the appropriate software on your system, you can create an
IPP print path from your system to a supported
HP Jetdirect-connected printer over the Internet.
Features and benefits provided by Internet printing include:
High-quality, time-sensitive documents can be printed remotely,
in full-color or black-and-white
Documents can be printed remotely at a fraction of the cost of
current methods (such as fax, mail, or overnight delivery
The traditional LAN printing model can be extended to that of
an Internet Printing Model
IPP requests for sending print jobs can be transmitted outbound
HP Internet Printer Connection software allows you to set up
Internet printing from Windows NT 4.0 and Windows 2000 clients.
