HP Jetdirect External USB Compatibility
Introduction
There have been some questions from customers about the compatibility of printers and the
HP Jetdirect External Print Server Products. This white paper addresses those questions and
provides a list of supported printers with the USB External Print Servers that are currently on
the Corporate Price List (CPL).
Over the years, many things have changed regarding external print servers and printers they
connect to. In the past, an external print server was the only way to place these printers on
a network. In contrast, many printers today come with their own embedded networking and
the USB port is used almost exclusively for direct connection to PCs. As a result, some
printers have implemented cost effective USB modes that are very difficult for an external
print server to support on the network.
Current Support Strategy
HP currently has four external USB products on the CPL:
J6035G 175X 10/100TX USB 1.1 External Print Server
J7988G en1700 10/100TX USB 2.0 External Print Server
J7951G ew2400 10/100TX & 802.11b/g USB 2.0 External Print Server
J7942G en3700 10/100TX USB 2.0 External Print server
In 2008, the J6035G 175X print server will be discontinued. This print server has been
popular, but is not upgradeable and it does not support Hi-Speed USB. The 175x supports

    USB 1.1 and USB 1.1 does not include Hi-Speed. USB 2.0 added Hi-Speed and is fully backward compatible with USB 1.1 in Full-Speed. As a result, some of the newer USB printers cannot be supported. Its eventual replacement is currently available as the en1700, an upgradeable solution that supports Hi-Speed USB and also supports IPv6.
