HP Laserjet 4050 tcp/ip manual configuration???

bugnote 03.03.2003, 22:05
Hi Guys,

I'm trying to change the internal tcp/ip settings for one of our printers in the office. Does anyone know of a way of doing this.....I think I need some software called JetAdmin?

Don't want to call our own support as they'll just start asking questions like why i'm trying to do this on my own etc etc...

Cheers

P.S. I need to do this as one, upto now unused, printer has been assigned the same ip settings as another

Few different ways of doing this mate..

1) Use the web version of HP JetAdmin which is a pain in the knackers.

2) If you already know the IP, take the other printer offline and connect via telnet, or if you cannot connect take the other printer offline connect another pc directly to the printer via a crossover and manually specify an IP on the same subnet / network as the printer and then connect via telnet.

3) Change the IP via the front panel - usually the easiest way if possible...

You can get the IP address via a config page:

"Press the right side of the MENU button until "Information Menu" appears on the display. Press the right side of the ITEM button until "Print Configuration" appears in the display. Press the SELECT button."

Now, these instructions basically tell you how to change the address - ensure IP is enabled!

To enable or disable network protocols

Press the GO or ONLINE button to take the printer offline.
Press MENU repeatedly until EIO # JETDIRECT MENU is displayed (# identifies the EIO slot number of the card). (MIO cards may display MIO CONFIG or HP MIO #, or some other variation depending on the printer.)
Press ITEM until CFG NETWORK=NO* appears.
NO* indicates that access to the EIO Jetdirect network menus will be bypassed. You must change this to CFG NETWORK=YES* to access the EIO Jetdirect menus:

Press VALUE. [or a + or - (plus or minus) key]

CFG NETWORK=YES appears.
Press SELECT (or ENTER)

CFG NETWORK=YES* appears.
Press ITEM to scroll through each network protocol until the one you want to change is displayed. For example, NOVELL=ON, TCP/IP=ON, etc.
Press VALUE [or a + or - (plus or minus) key] to change the protocol to OFF.
Press SELECT (or ENTER)

If you have not already done so, enable TCP/IP (TCP/IP+ON*) by following the instructions described in "To Enable or Disable Network Protocols" earlier in this document.
NOTE: Enter data carefully. If you make an incorrect entry, you cannot change it without starting again from step 1.

Press the GO or ONLINE button to take the printer offline.
Press MENU repeatedly until EIO # JETDIRECT MENU is displayed (# identifies the EIO slot number of the card).
Press ITEM until CFG NETWORK=NO* appears.
NO* indicates that access to the EIO Jetdirect network menus will be bypassed. You must change this to CFG NETWORK=YES* to access the EIO Jetdirect menus:

Press VALUE [or a + or - (plus or minus) key] .

CFG NETWORK=YES appears.
Press SELECT (or ENTER.)

CFG NETWORK=YES* appears.
Press ITEM to scroll through each network protocol until CFG TCP/IP=NO* is displayed.
To access the TCP/IP configuration menu, press VALUE and then press SELECT to display CFG TCP/IP=YES*.

Press ITEM until BOOTP=YES* or BOOTP=NO* appears.
The asterisk (*) indicates the active selection.
To change the BOOTP setting, press VALUE. Then press SELECT. Be sure an asterisk (*) appears alongside your selection.
If BOOTP=YES*, the printer is configured to retrieve its TCP/IP parameters over the network using BOOTP or DHCP. No other TCP/IP prompts will be displayed on the printer's control panel. To activate the printer and save your changes, press GO.
You have completed TCP/IP configuration on the card. You must now configure your BOOTP or DHCP server. Refer to your system manuals for instructions.

If BOOTP=NO*, the printer is configured to accept TCP/IP parameters from the printer's control panel. Press ITEM to configure each TCP/IP parameter.
IP BYTE 1=<value>* should appear on the control panel first. To enter the first byte of the IP address, press VALUE [or a + or - (plus or minus) key] until the desired value appears. (If you press and hold VALUE [or a + or - (plus or minus) key] , the values scroll rapidly.)
To save the value, press SELECT (or ENTER). Press ITEM to continue.
Configure the remaining bytes of the IP address in the same manner.
You can configure the subnet mask bytes (SM), syslog server IP address (LG), default gateway (GW), and timeout (TIMEOUT) in the same manner.
To activate the printer and save your changes, press GO.
