HP 175X – JetDirect Print Server User Manual

The Network Basics Tutorial A brief overview of: Which CD should I use? Where do I find the printer driver? When do I stop? Network Basics Tutorial This tutorial tells you about: Communicate — send and receive e-mail, and participate in conferences Share information — transfer files among systems, and get information from central databases Share resources — use shared printers, The most common type of local area network may also be referred to as an Ethernet LAN or an Ethernet.

Local area networks can be either wired as shown here jetdirecy A typical LAN uses twisted-pair wiring similar to telephone wiring to connect each computer to a central hub. The hub transmits network communications between computers.

This wiring connects the computers or other network devices to a central hub. The use of telephone-type wiring makes it easy for the persons who administer your telephone wiring to administer the network It looks similar to the ohm thin coaxial cable used in television installations, but the television cable will not work in a network.

A desktop computer connects to a twisted-pair LAN through a network interface card NIC that resides in a slot in the computer, or through a similar interface built in to the computer itself. The RJ plug of the network cable plugs into an RJ manuao on the card or in the computer. This makes wireless LANs very flexible, and setup and reconfiguration are very easy.

Click on these links jetdirecf more details on wireless LAN topologies: Infrastructure mode is referred to as a “basic service set” BSS. It’s topology is sometimes called a jetdirext topology”, and it may also be called “enterprise mode” because it is the preferred topology for large networks.


On a network of Apple Macintosh computers, it may be called an “Airport network”. Infrastructure mode is referred to as an “independent basic service set” IBSS. It is sometimes called “peer-to-peer mode”.

On a network of Apple Macintosh computers, it may be called “computer-to-computer mode”. In ad hoc mode the wireless devices on a network communicate directly with each other, and access points are not Though the distinctions may often be somewhat blurry, some wireless technologies — such as the Bluetooth technology that is becoming popular in mobile phones and handheld computers — are more about connecting a computing device to a peripheral, rather than connecting computers and other devices in a network.

Wireless connections are most common in portable computers. Increasingly, notebook computers come with built-in wireless networking. For notebook computers that don’t have built-in networking, you can plug a wireless networking For example, a mixed LAN can provide the flexible connections of wireless with the high overall throughput of a wired LAN.


Such an arrangement makes it particularly easy for mobile workers to connect their A LAN can be small enough to serve a home office or a small business, or it h be large enough to serve a school, a hospital, or a substantial business or public office. This allows you to communicate with a specific computer or other device, such as a printer. That way, your e- mail doesn’t go to everybody, and your print job doesn’t get printed simultaneously on all printers on the network.

Mqnual a wired environment an intruder needs to gain physical access to your network wiring to break into your network; in a wireless environment, he just needs to be in range of the radio waves that carry the network traffic. A server on the network authenticates each client that requests a connection to the mznual.

Wireless print server security: As you set up your wireless print server, the wireless setup wizard will make it easy to match the print server’s security settings to those of your network. The wizard’s help pages provide considerable detail on the process. Using network printers lets you meet your computer users’ printing jwtdirect more efficiently. By sharing printers among several users, you reduce the number of printers you need.

This approach saves money — there’s less equipment to buy saves space — users don’t need to make space for a printer A print server provides your printer with connection to the network. You could get the same connection using a computer — your network server — but it would cost more and be more complex. Which one you choose depends on your printer. The slot provides the data and power connections for the print server, and the network cable plugs into Their connections are similar to the those of jetdrect print servers, except that there is no network cable connection.

An antenna in the print server makes the radio-frequency connection to the wireless network. The first is the peer- to-peer topology, in which a computer sends print jobs directly to the printer. In peer-to-peer printing, each computer manages the print jobs that it generates.

In this topology, a computer sends its print jobs to a network server, and the server sends the print jobs to the printer.

This driver is system software that converts a document in your computer to a form that makes sense for the printer. When you print from an application on your computer, it is the printer driver that converts the layout on your screen to the There are two steps to this: Set up the printer hardware — Remove any shipping materials. For a ph print server the connection sequence is the same, except that there is no network cable to connect.


If you use an internal print server: Note that many printers come with the print server module already installed in the printer. The next few paragraphs describe the operation jetxirect the installer software that resides on the HP Jetdirect CD. If you are using the network printer installer that resides on the printer’s CD, the operation may be slightly different from what we describe here. In many cases this is the same driver that is used for a direct non-networked printer connection, and you can probably jerdirect the driver on the CD that came with the printer.


In fact, some printers come with the network installer program on the printer CD. If your printer is in the list below, use the printer CD for installation. Tips on Getting Jetdirecct Background Installing a network printer is quite straightforward: First, you set up your hardware. This involves setting up your printer, and then setting up a print server to connect the printer to your network.

Then, you run the network printing software to install the printer on your computer. If you have purchased your printer and print server separately, you probably have two sets of documentation and two installation CDs — which do you use?

The section below on Which CD do I use? Go to step 3. Use the printer CD. It knows where to find the printer driver. When prompted, select the network connection option.

The best source of a driver for your ejtdirect is the Web, because that gives you the jeteirect driver.

The drawback of getting your driver from the Web is that some drivers are quite large, and may take several minutes to download at modem speeds. We think it’s worth spending the time. The HP support jetdidect at http: To connect the printer to the network using the x or x print server, you will: Steps to install the print server hardware 1. Plug the DC power cord from the power module—shipped with the print server—into the power connector on the rear end of the print server.

Plug manuak power module into a power outlet. Do not use the power module shipped with your print server with any other products! Verify the connection with the printer by printing a configuration test page: Briefly press and release the test button on the rear end of the print server. You can use amnual clip attached to the bottom of the print server to mount it to the printer or to a table or wall. Use either the 1175x sticky tape or the mounting screw holes.

Or you can pull off the clip. This is OK before the print server finishes starting up. After startup completes, this could indicate a faulty print server. Power cycle the printer and reconnect the USB cable to the printer. If it is blinking amber, then the printer may be faulty. General Jetdirect Information Provides general print server status and identification information. This section appears only for the x. Any user-configured settings will be erased.

When the procedure is done, the print server responds exactly like it was fresh from the factory. You will find the following among the topics hhp in its contents panel: Each Jetdirect print server contains an embedded web server, a jetcirect for configuring and managing the print server.
