HP Jetdirect Print Server - 610n, 615n, Understanding the Configuration Page

Introduction

The HP Jetdirect configuration page is an important tool for managing or troubleshooting HP Jetdirect print servers. This page provides identification information (such as the HP Jetdirect model, firmware version, and Local Area Network (LAN) hardware address), as well as status and configuration parameters of supported network protocols. Network statistics gathered by the print server are also provided.

Printing a Configuration page from the control panel of a printer

There are at least two styles of printer control panels - "Classic" and "Flex". Classic control panels typically have Menu and Item buttons; Flex control panels have a check mark button and arrow buttons and/or a numeric keypad.

While this complicates things in an environment with many different types of HP printers, the basic navigation concepts apply: the HP Jetdirect Configuration is usually found on an Information menu and since it is an I/O port on the printer, configuration menus are usually on an I/O or EIO menu. Some printers can print a Menu Map to show what is available.

For Classic menus:

  1. Use the MENU key on the Front Panel to go to the Information, Test, or PCL Test menu.

  2. Press the ITEM key to go to the Print Configuration, Print EIO Configuration, PCL Configuration Page, or the Self Test.

  3. Press Select , Go , or Enter .

For Flex Menus:

  1. Press the check mark button to enter the menu system, press the down arrow button to Information.

  2. Press the check mark button to enter the Information menu.

  3. Press the down arrow button to Print Configuration.

  4. Press the check mark button

Printing a Configuration page from other printers or HP Jetdirect models

Designjet printers' control panels vary even more - their Configuration pages are usually under the Utilities menu and are called Service, Print Service Config, and Config Plot.

The HP LaserJet 2100, 2200, and similar printers will print a page when both buttons on top of the printer are pressed simultaneously.

External HP Jetdirects have a TEST button on the top or the back of the HP Jetdirect.

An HP Jetdirect configuration page can also be viewed over the network from a management utility (such as HP Web Jetadmin), or by accessing the embedded Web server on the HP Jetdirect print server (type the IP address of the HP Jetdirect into a web browser as you would a URL.
