I am trying to setup my jetdirect ex3 to print using lpd. I have
tcp/ip up and running on my nt server 4.0 w/ sp 3. I have installed tcp print services on the server. I "route added" the default ip address of the ex 3 to the server routing table.
I do a "route print" and the address 192.0.0.192 is shown.
The dlc protocal works fine with the ex3. I followed the instructions from HP fax-back help. But when I ping 192.0.0.192 from the server the ping times out. The server
does have (2) ip addresses. One for the internal network,
 and one from the ISP for access to the internet.I "route added" the 192.0.0.192 to the internal ip address. Any suggestions? Thanking you in advance

You need tp configure IP address on jetdirect card. To do this make arp entry on NT by executing arp -s 192.0.0.192 <print server MAC address>. MAC address you can found on print server card. Login to print server by telnet or download configuration file by TFTP as described in print server documentation. And remove added address from routing table.

There was nothing about arp in all the documentation that looked in. As soon as I did that, I was in and configuring like a
madman. Thanks alot vvk whoever_where_ever you are!
