  • Page 33

    ● From a UNIX command prompt: arp -s <IP address> <LAN hardware address> ping <IP address> where <IP address> is the desired IP address to be assigned to the print server. The arp command writes the entries to the arp cache on the workstation, and the ping command configures the IP address on the print server.

  • Page 34: Using Telnet

    Using Telnet This subsection describes how to configure the print server using Telnet. To use Telnet commands with the HP Jetdirect Note print server, a route must be available from your workstation to the print server. Simplistically, this means that there must be a match between the network identification of your system to that of the HP Jetdirect print server.

  • Page 53: Ftp Printing

    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 54: Print Files

    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 55: Ftp Login

    Although the ls and dir commands are always accepted, the HP Jetdirect FTP server supports only one data connection for printing at a time. The transmission mode for an FTP data connection with the HP Jetdirect print server is always in stream mode, which marks the end-of-file by closing the data connection.

    TCP/IP Overview Introduction This appendix is intended to provide information to help you gain a basic understanding of TCP/IP. TCP/IP (Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol) is a suite of protocols designed to define the way data is passed to network devices. TCP/IP is rapidly becoming the most used set of protocols.

  • Page 86: Ip Address

    User Datagram Protocol (UDP) UDP provides similar services to TCP. However, UDP does not acknowledge data receipt and supports request/reply transactions with no added reliability or guarantee of delivery. UDP is used when acknowledgment and reliability are not required, such as during a “discovery broadcast.”...

  • Page 87: Ip Address Structure And Class

    IP Address: (Host Portion) Host addresses numerically identify specific network interfaces on an IP network. Usually a host has only one network interface; thus, only one IP address. Because no two devices can share the same number at the same time, administrators typically maintain address tables to assure correct assignment of addresses in the host network.

  • Page 89: Configuring Ip Addresses

    Configuring IP Addresses 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 through HP-supplied software, or they can be automatically downloaded using DHCP or BOOTP each time the print server is turned on.

  • Page 90: Subnets

    Address In the table above, “Subnet Masks,” the Class A network 15 has been assigned to Hewlett-Packard. To allow additional networks at the HP site, the subnet mask of 255.255.0.0 is used. This address designates the second byte of the IP address as the subnet address.

  • Page 91: Gateways

    Gateways 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. When networks are divided into subnets, gateways are required to connect one subnet to another.

For example, you can automatically configure IP parameters over the network using BOOTP (Bootstrap Protocol) or DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) each time the printer is turned on.
