This section describes how to configure the print server (firmware
version x.25.01 or greater) using Telnet.
Although a Telnet connection may be protected by an administrator
password, Telnet connections are not secure. For networks with
high security levels, Telnet connections can be disabled on the print
server using other tools (for example, TFTP, embedded Web server,
or 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. For information on IP address structure,
If their IP addresses do not match, then you can either change your
workstation's IP address to match, or you can try an operating
system command to create a route to the print server. (For example,
if the print server is configured with a legacy default IP address
126.96.36.199, a route will not likely exist.)
On Windows systems, you can use aroute command at a Windows
command (DOS) prompt to create a route to the print server.
For information on system command prompts, see your Windows
online help. On Windows NT systems, the command prompt utility
is in the Programs folder (click Start, Programs, Command
Prompt). On Windows 2000/XP systems, it is in the Accessories
folder in the Programs folder.
For HP Jetdirect wireless print servers, this section
assumes that a wireless connection to your network
has been established.
