Discontinue DHCP configuration
Changes to an IP address on your HP Jetdirect print server can require updates to the printer or system printing configurations for clients or servers.
If you change to Manual configuration, the DHCP IP address is released and the specified IP parameters are used. If you manually provide the IPv4 address, set all of the configuration parameters, such as subnet mask, default gateway, and idle timeout.
If you re-enable a DHCP configuration, the print server acquires its configuration information from a DHCP server. When you choose DHCP and complete your configuration session (using Telnet, for example), the TCP/IP protocol for the print server is re-initialized and all current configuration information is deleted. The print server then attempts to acquire new configuration information by sending DHCP requests on the network to a DHCP server.
For DHCP configuration using Telnet, see Use Telnet (IPv4) in this chapter.
