Printing with TCP/IP with HP Jet Direct

Do Windows 95 support TCP/IP printing with Jet Direct?  
There is no server installed in the remote site, only a HP Jet direct installed and configured with appropiated IP address.  

I can successfully print documents to the printer by Windows NT Workstation 4.0 by add an additional Jet Direct Port and point the IP address to the Jet Direct printer.

However, I cannot add the port in Windows 95 because there is no other port I can choose for configuration.  I installed Jet Admin 2.53 in the Windows 95 machine but still cannot configure a port for TCP/IP printing.

Do anyone have idea about these?

Thanks,

Tony.

can you see the printer from the win95 printer? If youcan then goto add printer and setup as a network printer then browse network to find the printer you will need the drivers for the printer attached to the jetdirect. after selecting it from the network install drivers on local computer.

I can now use attach the printer to Jetdirect port by re-install Jet Admin 2.53.  However, the printer seems not very stable.  Jet Admin aways prompt me cannot communicate with the printer, is there any configuration have to made in the router hence to enable TCP/IP printing?

There are one HP Laserjet 5 and one HP Laserjet 4000.  It is very strange that I can setup the port in a very very occasional chance, but the printers can always searched and displayed in JetAdmin printer list.  

However, an error message "Unable to communicate with device.  No response from the device" displayed if I tried to modify it or view it's properities.

But anyway, thanks for your help ddmorgan.
