    TCP/IP Configuration Introduction To operate properly on a TCP/IP network, the HP Jetdirect print server must be configured with valid TCP/IP network configuration parameters, such as an IP address that is valid for your network. For general information on TCP/IP networks, see Appendix Server-Based and Manual TCP/IP Configuration When in a factory-default state and powered on, the HP Jetdirect...

  • Page 35: 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. Default IP Address Will Not Be Assigned A default IP address will not be assigned if a server-based method (such as BOOTP or DHCP) is successful.

  • Page 36

    With link-local addresses, subnetting is not used. The subnet mask will be 255.255.0.0, and cannot be changed. Link-local addresses will not route off the local link, and access to or from the Internet will not be available. The default gateway address will be the same as the link-local address.

  • Page 37

    DHCP Requests Enable/Disable When a default IP address is assigned, you can configure the print server to send, or not send, periodic DHCP requests. DHCP requests are used to retrieve IP configuration settings from a DHCP server on the network. By default, this parameter is enabled, allowing DHCP requests to be transmitted.

  • Page 38

    TCP/IP Configuration Tools When a network connection has been established, an HP Jetdirect print server can be configured with valid TCP/IP parameters for your network in the following ways: Using Software.

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.

  • Page 40: Using Bootp/tftp

    Using BOOTP/TFTP For HP Jetdirect wireless print servers, this section Note assumes that a wireless connection to your network has been established. 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.

  • Page 41

    Why Use BOOTP/TFTP? Using BOOTP/TFTP to download configuration data has the following benefits: Enhanced configuration control of the HP Jetdirect print server. Configuration by other methods, such as a printer control panel, are limited to select parameters. Ease of configuration management. Network configuration parameters for the entire network can be in one location.

  • Page 42

    Configuring the BOOTP Server For the HP Jetdirect print server to obtain its configuration data over the network, the BOOTP/TFTP servers must be set up with the appropriate configuration files. BOOTP is used by the print server to obtain entries in the /etc/bootptab file on a BOOTP server, while TFTP is used to obtain additional configuration information from a configuration file on a TFTP server.

  • Page 43

    Bootptab File Entries An example of a /etc/bootptab file entry for an HP Jetdirect print server is provided below: picasso:\ :hn:\ :ht=ether:\ :vm=rfc1048:\ :ha=0001E6123456:\ :ip=192.168.40.39:\ :sm=255.255.255.0:\ :gw=192.168.40.1:\ :lg=192.168.40.3:\ :T144=“hpnp/picasso.cfg”: Note that the configuration data contains “tags” to identify the various HP Jetdirect parameters and their settings.

    FTP Printing Introduction FTP (File Transfer Protocol) is a basic TCP/IP connectivity utility to transfer data between systems. FTP printing is a way to use FTP to send print files from a client system to an HP Jetdirect-connected printer. In an FTP printing session, the client connects and sends a print file to the HP Jetdirect FTP server which in turn passes the print file to the printer.

  • Page 173: Print Files, Using Ftp Printing

    Print Files The HP Jetdirect FTP server transfers print files to the printer but does not interpret them. For proper printing, print files must be in a language recognized by the printer (such as PostScript, PCL, or unformatted text). For formatted print jobs, you must first print to a file from your application using the driver for the selected printer, then transfer the print file to the printer through an FTP session.

  • Page 174

    Control Connection Using standard FTP, a control connection is opened by the client to the FTP server on the HP Jetdirect print server. FTP control connections are used to exchange commands between the client and the FTP server. The HP Jetdirect print server supports up to four control connections (or FTP sessions) simultaneously.

    TCP/IP Overview Introduction This appendix is intended to provide information to help you gain a basic understanding of TCP/IP. Similar to a common language that people use to communicate with each other, TCP/IP (Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol) is a suite of protocols designed to define the way computers and other devices communicate with each other over a network.

  • Page 237: 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 238

    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 239

    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 240: Configuring Ip Parameters

    Configuring IP Parameters TCP/IP configuration parameters (such as IP address, subnet mask, default gateway) can be configured on the HP Jetdirect print server in a variety of ways. These values can be configured manually (for example, through Telnet, the embedded Web server, the arp and ping commands, and HP management software), or they can be automatically downloaded using DHCP or BOOTP each time the print server is turned on.

  • Page 241: 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.

  • Page 242: Gateways, Syslog Server

    Gateways Gateways (routers) are used to connect networks together. Gateways are devices that act as translators between systems that do not use the same communication protocols, data formatting, structures, languages, or architectures. Gateways repackage the data packets and change the syntax to match that of the destination system.

  • Page 243

    The syslog server may not receive all syslog events from the HP Jetdirect print server: 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.
