Misc. Settings

Misc. Settings

Use the Misc. Settings tab to set a variety of advanced protocols and features, as described in Miscellaneous Settings.

Miscellaneous Settings
SLP Config
Enable SLP, which is used by certain client application software to automatically discover and identify the HP Jetdirect print server.
If SLP uses multicast protocols, you must enable Multicast IPv4.
Telnet Config
Use Telnet to access to HP Jetdirect configuration parameters. For more information, see TCP/IP configuration.
Use Bonjour services (formerly listed as Multicast Domain Name System [mDNS] services). Bonjour is typically used for IP address and name resolution (through UDP port 5353) where a conventional DNS server is not used.
For Bonjour operation, you must enable Multicast IPv4.
Multicast IPv4
Use the receipt and transmission of IP version 4 multicast packets by the print server.
HP Jetdirect Print Servers note Misc. Settings NOTE:

If disabled, other protocols that use multicast protocols, such as Bonjour and SLP, might also be disabled.

9100 Config
Use port 9100 services. This is an HP-proprietary raw TCP/IP port on the HP Jetdirect print server and is the default port for printing. It is accessed by HP software, such as the HP Standard Port.
FTP Printing
Use FTP services available on the HP Jetdirect print server for printing. For more information, see FTP printing.
LPD Printing
Use LPD services on the HP Jetdirect print server. LPD provides line printer spooling services for TCP/IP systems. For more information, see LPD printing.
IPP Printing
Use IPP on the HP Jetdirect print server. If the printer is properly connected and accessible, IPP allows printing to this device over the Internet (or intranet). A properly configured IPP client system is also required. For information on IPP client software, see HP software solutions summary.
HP XML Services
Allow access by HP Web service applications to XML-based data on the HP Jetdirect print server.
Certificate Mgmt Service
Allow HP Web Jetadmin to access and service your certificate configuration.
Web Services Print
Use the Microsoft Web Services for Devices (WSD) Print services supported on the HP Jetdirect print server.
Use the Microsoft Web Services Dynamic Discovery (WS Discovery) protocols on the print server.
Indicates whether link local multicast name resolution (LLMNR) requests are responded to over IPv4 and IPv6.
Link settings
(For wired 10/100/1000T Ethernet) Set the print server’s link speed and communication mode. The available selections depend on the print server model.
HP Jetdirect Print Servers caution Misc. Settings CAUTION:

If you change the link setting, network communications with the print server and network device might be lost.

AUTO (default) Use auto-negotiation to configure itself with the highest link speed and communication mode allowed. If auto-negotiation fails, either 100TX HALF or 10TX HALF is set, depending on the detected link speed of the hub/switch port. (A 1000T half-duplex selection is not supported.)

10T-Full 10 Mbps, full-duplex operation.

10T-Half 10 Mbps, half-duplex operation.

100TX-Full 100 Mbps, full-duplex operation.

100TX-Half 100 Mbps, half-duplex operation.

100TX-AUTO Limit auto-negotiation to a maximum link speed of 100 Mbps.

1000T FULL 1000 Mbps, full-duplex operation.
Locally Administered Address
(Supported print servers only) Warning: Changing the locally administered address results in the loss of connectivity to the browser.
Specify a locally administered address (LAA) to replace the factory assigned LAN Hardware (MAC) address. If used, enter a string of exactly 12 hexadecimal digits.
For Ethernet print servers, the LAA address must start with hexadecimal X2, X6, XA, or XE, where X is any hexadecimal digit 0 through F.
The default address is the factory assigned address.
Syslog Facility
Identify the source facility of a message. Typically used to identify the source of selected messages during troubleshooting. By default, the HP Jetdirect print server uses LPR as the source facility code. However, you can use values of local0 through local7 to isolate individual or groups of print servers.
HTTP Idle Timeout
Length of time after which an idle HTTP connection is closed. Applies to the time after an HTTP request or response completes. Enter from 5 to 60 seconds. The default is 15.
Set to zero (0) to disable. (The TCP/IP idle timeout value is used.)
Dynamic Raw Port Setting
Specify additional ports for printing to TCP port 9100. Valid ports are 3000 to 9000, which are application-dependent.
Bonjour Highest Priority Service
Specify the highest Bonjour priority service to use for printing:
9100 Printing Raw IP printing through HP-proprietary port 9100.
IPP Printing Internet Printing Protocol printing.
LPD Printing (RAW) Default LPD raw queue printing.
LPD Printing (TEXT) Default LPD text queue printing.
LPD Printing (AUTO) Default LPD auto queue printing.
LPD Printing (BINPS) Default LPD binary PostScript queue printing.
LPD Printing (<user-defined>) List up to 5 LPD queues (if configured), where <user-defined> is the name of the user-specified LPD print queue.
The default depends on the printer, typically 9100 Printing or LPD Printing (BINPS).
