    10/100Base-TX Link Configuration Introduction HP J6057A (615N) or J4169A (610N) 10/100Base-TX print servers support 10 or 100 Mbps operation using full-duplex or half-duplex transmission channels. By default, the print server will attempt to autonegotiate its link operation. When connecting to network hubs and switches that do not support autonegotiation, the print server will configure itself for 10-Mbps or 100-Mbps half-duplex operation.

    Try the following troubleshooting procedures: Verify cabling connections. Configure the print server’s 10/100TX link setting directly (for example, using the EIO menu on the printer’s control panel). Verify that the configuration of the connecting network device (such as a network switch) matches. For example, if you set the print server for 100Base-TX Full-Duplex operation, the port on the network switch must also be set to 100Base-TX Full-Duplex operation.

  • Page 27: Network Configuration Notes

    Network Configuration Notes Introduction The HP Jetdirect print server can simultaneously support multiple network communication protocols. This allows network computers that may be using different protocols to communicate with the same printer. Each protocol on the print server may require some configuration before the printer can communicate on the network using that protocol.

    eliminate unnecessary information on the Jetdirect Configuration Page, which displays status information for all enabled protocols. display protocol-specific error conditions on the printer’s control panel. These warning messages are displayed only if all enabled protocols are unable to print. To Restore Factory Default Values You can restore the Jetdirect print server to factory default values by performing a cold reset on your printer.
