Use the printer control panel

HP Jetdirect EIO or embedded print servers provide a configuration menu that you can open from the printer’s control panel. Using this menu, you can enable or disable network protocols and set basic network parameters.

HP Jetdirect Print Servers note Use the printer control panel NOTE:

Control panel configuration support of specific IPv4/IPv6 and IPsec networking parameters depends on the HP Jetdirect print server and printer.

For instructions about using the control panel for your printer, see your printer documentation.

When accessing the HP Jetdirect menu from the printer’s control panel, some TCP/IP network configuration parameters that you can set include the following (see HP Jetdirect control panel menus (V.38.xx) for additional parameters):

IP host name

TCP/IPv4 settings

TCP/IPv6 settings

Other network protocols (IPX/SPX, AppleTalk, DLC/LLC)

Security settings

Link configuration settings

To configure TCP/IP parameters not available from the control panel configuration, use an alternate configuration tool, such as Telnet/IPv4 or the embedded Web server.

If the HP Jetdirect print server is configured with TCP/IP parameters from the printer control panel, the configuration is saved on the print server when turned off and then on.
