This section describes how to configure the print server using the
Reverse Address Resolution Protocol (RARP) on UNIX and Linux
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.
2. Log onto your UNIX or Linux system as a superuser.
3. Make sure the RARP daemon is running on your system by

ps -ef | grep rarpd (Unix)
ps ax | grep rarpd (BSD or Linux)
