HP Jetdirect print servers support IP configuration from a supported Windows DHCP server. This section describes how to set up a pool or scope of IP addresses that the Windows server can assign or lease to any requester. When configured for BOOTP or DHCP operation and turned on, the HP Jetdirect print server automatically sends a BOOTP or DHCP request for its IP configuration. If properly set up, a Windows DHCP server responds with the print server’s IP configuration data.
