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.
The HP Jetdirect FTP server can be enabled or disabled through a
configuration utility, such as Telnet.
FTP printing requires the following:
HP Jetdirect print servers with firmware version x.08.55 or later.
TCP/IP client systems with FTP that complies with RFC 959.
