How do I set up an HP 1200C/PS on an ethernet network?  I have no documentation, and can find no reasonable help on HP's web page.  UNIX and NT machines will be using the printer.

You'll need a Print Server adapter. I'm not familiar with the 1200C/PS but it will either be a card from HP that installs in the printer or it will be a 3rd party gadget that attaches to the rear of the printer (Exebyte, etc.) The gadget basically is a print server in a box. It's got a connector for the printer on one end, a RJ-45 on the other. You remotely control the box with JetDirect (for HP) or with the vendor supplied software for Exebyte, etc.

Once the hardware is installed you have to configure it as to protocol (IP/IPX, etc.) and for address. When this is done you have to tell the NOS (UNIX/NT) about the device and give it a name. (the name is sometimes set in the box config) From that point a print queue should be visible at the NOS level that will connect to the controlle and thence to the printer. You need to be ADMIN or ROOT level to configure the NOS.

The printer has a 10 base T port in the back.  It shouldn't need the extra print server in addition.  It should be ethernet ready.  I just don't know how to configure it or where to go to find out.  It sounds like something that would be in a user manual, but I do not have it.
