IPsec/Firewall features provide network-layer security on both IPv4 and IPv6 networks. A firewall provides simple control of IP traffic, which is either permitted access or discarded. IPsec, RFC 2401 provides additional protection through authentication and encryption protocols.
The IPsec/Firewall capabilities depend on the HP Jetdirect print server product and the printer/MFP in which it is installed. The following capabilities are available:
|Value-featured print servers do not support IPsec/Firewall operation.
|Full-featured print servers and printers/MFPs that support IPsec can control IP traffic by using both firewall and IPsec protection.
|Full-featured print servers and printers/MFPs that do not support IPsec can control IP traffic using firewall protection only.
To configure the print server for IPsec/Firewall operation, use the embedded Web server through your browser. For more information, see IPsec/Firewall configuration (V.38.xx).
