Use the arp and ping commands (IPv4)
You can configure an HP Jetdirect print server with an IP address using the arp command from a supported system. The workstation from which the configuration is made must be located on the same network segment as the HP Jetdirect print server.
If you are configuring an HP Jetdirect wireless print server, this section assumes that a wireless network connection is established.
You might need root privileges to run the arp command.
The <IP address> is the desired IP address assigned to the print server, and <LAN hardware address> is the LAN hardware address of the print server. The arp command writes the entries to the arp cache on the workstation. The ping command configures the IP address on the print server.
Once the IP address is set on the print server, additional arp and ping commands are ignored. To again use arp and ping to configure the IP address, reset the print server to factory values. See Troubleshoot the HP Jetdirect print server.
On UNIX systems, the arp -s command can vary between different systems.
Some BSD systems expect the IP address (or host name) in reverse order. Other systems require additional parameters. See your system documentation for specific command formats.
